No More JR/DFA postings on Facebook?

Up until last couple of weeks JR/DFA was showing on Facebook their new products.

I no longer see these JR/DFA new stuff postings, and Mr. Konishi FB profile disappeared from Facebook, at least on my pages!

Any leads/opinions?

A very petty member of our hobby decided to contact FB saying that they were impersonating his business (old business)

Simple as that.

JR/DFA is still up and running despite all of the slander and road blocks that are being throw in their way.

That is just so wrong to do something like that.......Dee Force bought the name JR out of bankruptcy court. They have every legal right to use it.

I will support them with every dollar I can. I also just converted a different brand enthusiast to buy a JR XG 14 simply by letting him fly my plane. He liked the feeling and the gimbals he sold his other brand. I anxiously await for my new servos to arrive

I contacted Dee Force about some feature stories for FG and RCG.

In a few days Iím sure an explanation will be made public as to the JR/DFA Facebook site.

I spoke with Travis and they are ok, the new T44 Special Editions are coming and all is well with the service center too

JR/DFA

Good evening all. I sent a couple of receivers into Travis for repair of broken antenna's. Travis was able to repair all but one which just didn't bind and was toast. Talked with him a few, and ended up purchasing a couple of their new Rx's and sub Rx's and new Tx bats for 28x. He has almost everything needed to repair all equipment. Best part is, Travis is there heading up the service department!

I am so happy that JR is alive and well with DFA. I feel confident that the good ol' 28x will stay up and running and probably will outlast me! Thank you Travis. John L...

This is what they told me:

" Former JR president is attacking us for the trademark, They gave a red flag to FB, and FB froze our account."

"We are working on to reactivate the page with lawyers"

Seems such a fine product is in constant liability issues.. what a pitty!

I recently purchased a new JR/DFA T44 TX, a JR/DFA RG16BPX-odd/even RX and two JR/DFA RAO3TL sub receivers. The system is awesome, completely impressed. Communication and support from DFA and the service center has been second to none. extremely happy with my choice.

JTEC has all the goodies and more to come. Welcome back JR!

I don't do Facebook...
