Well guys. I may need to do some soul searching and adjust my moral compass.
I am not suggesting people go out of their way to trick or steal from Flipsky.
Maybe I should have used different words.
I have, however, become used to a high level of service as an American consumer and in most instances when you have a faulty product due to a manufacturing or QA issue it is common in my mind to expect a free replacement within a year of purchase.
I have a ton of Flipsky stuff and have not had any issues personally. But if I had a esc burn up on my after 30 days of correct use and it was not my fault and I got the run around from them, like so many have reported, when trying to do a return I would follow my method above.
If after five days of having an esc I ran my board through a puddle and ruined it with water I would suck it up and by a new one.
Also I don’t think of Flipsky as cheap crap you should expect to break. I’m happy they have more affordable items available, but I expect them to work as advertised and as such have bought a bunch of their stuff.
