I got my packs back from RC Professor last week, but I just got the package today (the mail room had odd hours last week, and I missed the hours they were open
). I think that I sent them in on dec 20th, so they had them basically all of 2 days before they were back in the mail to me.
Anyway, RC Professor rematched all of my cells from the 4 packs I sent in, and replaced the bad cells. When I opened the box I had a suprise, or a free gift, or a toy at the bottom of the box so to speak. I had to go change my underwear, because they included a 5th pack on the return trip. Its a low runtime pack, but a 4200 pack with 380-390 second specs (35 amp) are hardly a problem with a 5 minute heat/main particularly in stock, I could probably still use it twice with 2 heats. Voltages averaged across the pack put it at 1.236 volts (again, 35 amp) so I essentially got a good stocker pack for free.
Now, this makes me think that getting ripped off in the first place was a good thing
. I ask for some help on the board on what I should do about dead cells in a pack, and I end up with rematched packs along with a free pack, not to mention finding a place where the guys are clearly interested in carrying the hobby farther, and being helpful to a naive new guy with no money (who the hell wants to help out "that guy"?
Does this mean that I am sponsored now? I get free stuff...
