Team Trinity D4 1S "Certified" Short Stack Brushless Motor (17.5T)
I am the president of Chargers RC club located in Queensland, Australia. I bought one of these motors to use in the National Championships to race in the 4wd buggy "stock" class. When i tried the motor it seemed to rev ok, but didn't accelerate smoothly in reaching peak rpms. It was like it had 2 speeds...very slow to begin with, then fast after a few seconds. I tried another motor to see if there was an issue with the speed control but the other motor worked fine.
I emailed Trinity about the issue and the team manager (Kevin M Abbott) replied giving me two options - send the motor back or he could send me a new sensor board. I picked the second option, since i felt nervous about posting a $150 motor. He asked for my address and that was the last i heard from him. That was almost 6 months ago. After waiting a few months I still didn't get anything in the mail, so i sent him a reminder. I didn't get a reply.
I'd like my experience to serve as a warning to anyone considering purchasing Trinity products that:
1. The product may be defective and
2. The customer service may be inadequate
Please don't think that because you pay a lot of money that you will get a defect-free product. Be especially careful if you are not located in the US, as warranties may be more difficult to get honoured. I now have a $150 paper weight, so it was an expensive lesson but i hope my experience will help others to avoid similar mistakes.
