I've been waiting for weeks for the Pheonix 2000 PNF to come back into stock at HK. None of my e mails enquiring as to a re stock date have been answered. It seems as though their customer support department is pretty awful. Anyone else had problems with this? At about £60 this model is a good buy and those who have one have been pleased with it. I'm just a little reluctant to part with my hard earned if their follow up service isnt up to scratch. I'd appreciate any comments please.

Never really had a problem with customer support they are normally helpful. I have the Phoenix 1600 and they are a great glider for the money

I've had a few orders with either missing parts, or defective motors (circlips missing) and they have been fairly quick to sort things out, usually offering a refund in the way of a store credit. I have got a minor on going issue where some stuff I ordered back on June 12th still hasn't been delivered, but that isn't really HK's fault, it is the couriers they used....

The vibration and stuff sounds like a large out of balance on the prop/motor assembly....

Thanks for that info. I'll persevere and hang on until they come back into stock.
