I had already bought one from BumperBargains before Christmas. It arrived next day, however it was faulty (didn't test it til a couple of days after Christmas) (one of the buttons didn't work, not their fault I guess but still annoying). I then phoned up and they sent out a courier to collect it THE SAME DAY, for free, but due to the bank holiday on Monday I won't be receiving my new one til Tuesday/Wednesday.

Absolutely smashing service I have to say, I was really gutted when it was faulty as I knew it'd cost tonnes to post the joystick back to them, but getting it collected from my house, for free, the same day, was just awesome.

Will report back when I get my replacement.

Well my joystick got returned to Bumper Bargains, and they said they can't replace it as they don't have any in stock and won't be getting any in.

So I got refunded and now bought from flighstore smile Will report on how that goes !

Sure, but why do people post these? Are there dodgy batches or something?

I will take delivery on Saturday.

Not that I know of, just pure curiosity to be honest.

The original one Bumper Bargains sent me (which was faulty) the serial number on that was in the early 3,000's. So it was a very old stick, considering the latest serial numbers I've seen recently are up to 12-13,000.

So would just be curious how recent the sticks FlightStore are sending out are. smile

Ah, right I see. Well, I phoned them this morning and he said they are very low on stock so I guess we will get the last of their current stock, hopefully they sold the oldest first smile

Yeah when I phoned to ask if they had any stock he said they've only got 4 in today. 2 of those are ours then smile I'm hoping I don't get a really old stick again.

The one I got before that was in the 3,000s, the metal post on the stick was rusted!

Maybe that's why they are 'bargains' lol, sometimes best to pay a little extra.
