www.banggood.com ... Boo... Drone order missing.
Posted by: spacescape

Against my better judgment I ordered my kids a couple of drones for Christmas from Bang Good and guess what? I received the batteries 2-3 weeks ago... But, no drones... sad smiley

I did pay for insurance... and paid through paypal credit... So, I'm covered... But, very very bummed...

Any suggestions? Should I file a claim through Paypal then order through Amazon? Just wait and hope for the best?

spacescape,

I ordered something from Banggood about a month ago. Got an email 2 days later say9ing they were out of stock What did I want to do about my order?

I canceled my order and a week later got a refund from PayPal. I will not order from them again.

I think I will just put an OUT OF ORDER
sticker on my head and call it a day.

They have a lot of complaints on [www.complaintsboard.com] and [www.ripoffreport.com]

Their rating on [www.resellerratings.com] looks like it has been manipulated with lots of short five star reviews.

What's the difference between this one and the X5C that I ordered?

Looks like I could Wi-Fi it to my cell...

At one time there were some problems with the X5C Wi-Fi version according to one main review guy and others. It may be fixed now.

To be honest, I dont know. There seems to be at least 50 different models -- and since they havent changed since 2015 -- makes it even more confusing.

If this is just a first time drone, I think trying to figure it all out is just splitting hairs.

FWIW, from my limited research: the 5C-1 seemed to be slightly newer.

but they are all based on the SW, which was recently updated to the X5HC, X54HC and X54HW -- but think they are all $20+ more.

I almost got a X5UW, because I think it can fly a predertermined flight path, which I thought would be easer than flying in general. But $80. Alos looked at the X8, which had the same feature, but batteries were a lot more $. Although it did have 10-11 minute flight time vs 8 for the X5s

wifi to any iDevice had crappy reviews, so I didnt make that a priority.

We will see. If they enjoy it, maybe a $100 model for their summer birthday.

EDIT: my amazon link above isnt the one I ordered. I got the newer HW model, which you can tell apart by color. White with green and black. Says mine is sold out, but here it is without the extra batteries.

Ok, banggood.com has initiated a refund and I ordered the "Syma X5HW FPV 2.4Ghz 4CH RC Headless Quadcopter Drone UFO with Hover Function HD Wifi Camera White " for my sons (two of them).

This is the one you purchased? I was going to get one blue and one white but the blue one looked questionable "if" it would get here on time.
