Do you have feedback on the scales? Read that some were having problems with warranty.

I actually just received a feedback regarding the scales about two minutes ago.

Once we have them ready, we will deal with any warranty related issues on our end so that customers are not awaiting a potential replacement longer than necessary.

Got them and love them. They come well calibrated/setup so makes corner weighting easier. Mine were already within 1-2g of each other out the box.

These are exactly the same as the G-Force scales right? http://www.gforce-hobby.jp/products/G0022.html

The reason I asked. Posted on another site.

Be cautious of these. They are NOT Made by the same company (Gforce) like the ones that have been sold. The only ones GForce makes is for themselves.

Ive already had a few people email me asking if I can get their "SkyRC" scales fixed that didnt work. Answer is no. not the same animal as the Gforce ones

Skyrc also manufactures things for a lot of other company's and I hate to say it but the g force is a skyrc but rebranded for g force by skyrc. But either way beaker151 on rctech.net is the us distributor for skyrc and discountrcstore.com sells these as well.

I figured it was either manufactured by the same company or skyrc duplicated with cheaper products. The price difference is about $65 so it could go either way. (gforce markup or cheap products)

I've had my skyrc unit for a few months now and have loved it. Well worth it. But would suggest going thru discountrcstore.com as they would take care of you incase of issues plus they are just an awesome shop
