After 2 refunds from Banggood, I have opted to give them another chance since they are very good at refunding quickly when asked. This time they claimed to have 61 of them in stock so I ordered 1 for 243.99 USD. It came to 250.17 including postage and insurance. A few days later they shipped it and it is now on it's way. I'll update further as the adventure continues.


By the way, they are now offering it with a deeper discount at 235.99 plus 1.30 shipping so even with insurance should be about 242 USD all in and they say they still have 31 of them.

Progress update.......


This is beginning to look quite a bit more promising than previous orders with Banggood.


I just received this today from the USPS notification system!

Now let's hope it's being sent to the right address  ;)  I don't think my "bogus tracking number" had my name attached to it like that.

Mine was an Eachine ET-1 purchased through an ebay seller. Benny bought the same one and we were both given the same tracking number.

Can't really say Gil, as mine didn't get that kind of detailed coverage. But after mine was listed as having cleared U.S. Customs, it sat without any further information for over two weeks before suddenly turning up at my P.O. box. Whether it was sitting dead in Customs for that time, or otherwise handled in an inexpedient fashion, I really can't say.

That certainly bodes very well Gil ... didn't get unduly hung up in Customs, so you may well get it this next week!
