Your complaints in the two threads being discussed were based on... nothing?
It started as speculation regarding why C5's had less "punch" than they used to, but I did end up bringing up the recent CATOs I've experienced. Now, in fairness, customer support has been more than happy to replace the motors, and frankly, I can say I'm a satisfied customer of their products (my Avatar is a Big Daddy -- one of my favorite kits EVER of any vendor). But that said, I had a CATO in October and then another in December. Both from recently (within the last 8 months) purchased motors from Hobby Lobby. And this is a well-known issue. I'm not the only person experiencing this. So, there's either an issue in manufacturing, or there's an issue with how Hobby Lobby stores these motors. And we might be able to rule out HB if others have had these issues and purchased the motors elsewhere. There's legitimate cause for some criticism. Now, some on this forum may think I'm being a little harsh, but that's me. I'm not the nicest person in the world, I freely admit that. Everyone needs to learn to either deal with me as a little more sarcastic than most and/or grow a thicker skin. But, you'll discover that most of my barbs are self-depricating, so in a sense, I'm mostly harmless, sort of like Earth in HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
