It use to be $7.50 per 15 minutes plus parts. I just sent them my M11 module for warranty repair and it's 20 day turn time.

I sent my 3.0 in and they sent me a new one free of charge. Was losing signal about 50-60 feet out. Tried it with 4 different receivers. Got it back, sold it and bought a Futaba.

I've been completely hosed by Futaba...$89 plus shipping to repair a radio 15 days past warranty and Airtronics $80 on a radio 2 months out of warranty and $38 for a servo repair that was still in warrant but they did not beleive my recept because the servo was an old school one that was on the shelf at the hobby shop for awhile. None of the repairs were done in less than 3 weeks. I had a replacement with my DX3r and that was because I left it in the car at -4 degrees for 2 days. And 1 rx that went bad and they replaced it out of warranty.

Dx3 took about 1 month no-charge and they sent me a detailed list of what they repaired.

I broke the thumbwheel on my dx3s, they sent me a new one and I mailed mine out when the new on arrived. They did this so I had no downtime for my club races.
