Well, today I received a very polite email from horizonhobby:
We apologize that you are not satisfied with the service work done to
your SpekTrum receiver when it was returned to Horizon Hobby.
Prior to sending back your SpekTrum receiver, we tested your receiver
with one of our transmitters and everything was functioning perfectly,
therefore we were comfortable in returning the receiver back to you.
Although errors can happen, to date we have had a 100% success rate
with our SpekTrum repairs. I am going to ask our developer of the product
to contact you at the phone number listed in your original e-mail. He
is the same person who conducted the repair on your receiver so I'm
sure he would be interested in speaking to you.
Due to extremely high demand, we currently our out of stock on
receivers, so we have none to offer as a replacement. We are expecting our
next shipment sometime within the next four to six weeks.
Again, we apologize that you are not happy with our repair and you can
look forward from a phone call from a Horizon representative to discuss
this in greater detail.
If you have any questions in the meantime, contact me toll free at
Well at least something is happening, but I'm still out a receiver
I'm starting to wonder if they plugged the receiver into an ESC hooked to a 6 cell subC battery pack. I'm curious if my defective receiver would work that way. Either way, it doesn't work with any of my 5 cell (6.0v) receiver packs, while my other receiver works fine....
