wheres me popcorn :lol:



No Popcorn needed, I made a statement, I was corrected and put my hands up. I didn't have a choice of the two when I bought my Turbo Flapper, If I did then I too would look at both options and take my pick.

Incredible how we can have a "discussion" without fisty cuffs. Sorry to dissapoint.

I must admit I thought that it was the same item , perhaps this is not totally the case going by the reports of those who have seen both? but I would put money on the main component parts (motor etc) being from the same supplier in china :yes: question is is a bit more quality on the arms and ground spike as opposed to functionality worth the extra 30? mine (the cheaper version) certainly seems to do its bit and so far has been reliable, time will tell.

I thought the A1 versions' motor was direct from General Electrics special projects division, built when they're not doing black operations work for the US military :P

FWIW, AA decoys have a stand at Melton Mowbray cattle market every Tuesday and he did say their flappers were made in England too, most likely with China sourced parts as everything else is.

Funny that, one of the guys on his stand at the game fair said they were low on stock because the container from China hadn't arrived, that would be China in England no?

in my other hobby RC flying china has just about captured the market from the USA and all the British manufacturers have their products made in china, the days of monkey metal and substandard electronics are long gone, I would as said bet good money that the superior flapper uses the exact same Chinese motor.

hi guys.
yes i do defend Rotorcoy and the turbo flapper.How would you like it if you worked and tested an item and someone copied it and also called it with a simular name.
I am very good frends with Rotorcoy and understand how he feels. Still life must go on with a little dig hear and there rightly so!
On the point of the turbo being made in China, it is not. All parts are sorced in the UK. I do know that on flee bay aa decoys do not offer a return or warranty.
A1 decoys do offer a full warranty and return service.Thats a big difference.

funny how the doubters are the ones who don,t own a turbo flapper and didn,t realise there was 2 versions one a copy and 1 an original could be a coincidence

The important point - will the pigeons and crows notice a difference?
