Why I Personally Have No Interest in Clone Receivers.

below is verbatim by the folks who bring you the Lemon receivers.

"Lemon Rx engineers had been spending months in optimizing stabilization control stratergy along with many flight tests by experienced pilots all over the world to come up an excpetionally reliable and easy to use stabilizer (namely stabilizer PLUS). The otpmized control stratergy allow the stabilizer to work just about any planes with almost no complex tuning and minmal setup required that just take a few seconds to complete."

My guess is the spelling and grammar is the challenge? It seems Lemon Rx made an attempt there, but a rather poor one. Amazingly it is better than some though.

If spelling is an issue, then I would have to throw away most everything I have and quit using it. Yes, some companies do have quality checks on spelling and grammar, but sadly a small few are concerned.

I donít understand why these companies donít hire a native English speaker to edit their ad copy and instructions.

I Agree, Its rare to not find something without a grammatical error.

So the OP is saying he wont buy Items that have spelling / grammar errors? Me Confused lol

100% with you Luchnia Look at half the Arf / Engine manuals there all pretty ordinary but usually the models / Products are amazing
Just because there has been a conversion to English and or some unintended grammar errors should not dictate if a product is good/bad or weather you buy a product or not.

First of all, I am not the grammar police. I am not anyone's English teacher. My grammar and syntax is frequently imperfect. I also type errors like everyone else. However, this thread is apparently about native English speakers making fun of those who are not and who have made poor translations in their eyes. The irony is that those who are picking on the non-native English speakers are not wonderful writers themselves. I am not picking on you, Hodge, but here's the irony:

Double negative is employed here. Either omit "not" or "without". As written, it implies it is rare to find something with a grammatical error.

Among other items, a common misuse of the word there (location) vs their (possession), vs they're (they are), corrected below:

It is not just RC by any means. I bought an extra MP3 player off Amazon the other day and by far I think it had the worst manual I have seen in a long time. I have had some experience with bad manuals, so I made it through fine, but I can imagine someone struggling with it.

RC..,as a teacher in a high Hispanic population demographic I am very sensitive to the challenges faced by ESL learners. That is not what this thread is about. This thread is a poke at a company that has copied the intellectual property of another and as part of their literature has made a laughable attempt at hype. Spellcheck and even grammar suggestion software are ubiquitous and cheap (or free) so in this day and age there’s no good reason for a litany of easily correctable mistakes.
