And risk breaking the PCB inside? Sure.

I think anyone that's worked inside these electronics before probably has the skill enough to pop or cut a case apart without doing damage to the inside. They're not really that delicate. Granted, the seller/scammer that sold these RXs doesn't possess that skill, but maybe the OP does.

Default I may have another option?

I do believe the seller misrepresented his sale. Those receivers look bad.
They may still function properly. If he will not buy them back from you and you want to keep the radio, then maybe you could sell me the recievers.
I need a couple more of those exact kind. I don't care what they look like. I am just gonna throw them in a couple of my bashers.
fire them up! if they work shoot me a PM with a price shipped to 17044.
give me a good deal and we all walk away happy. The seller, buyer and third party.(me)

just another option.

thanks,
matthew

CA debonding agent, dremel, sharp knife...

This is just another option in case the OP cannot/does not get a refund or is unable to return the items. Honestly, the repair work would probably be less abuse then those receivers took during their actual usage with the seller.

I see all these posts about people sell their junk!! Well if I have something I know is in all honestly "crappy" shape BUT still works perfect, just some minor flaws to say a receiver case, cut antenna, but the main board is still good, I'd still sell it BUT....I would put the BEST description I could on it down to every scuff/scratch. I have sold thousands of rc items from new to crappy, you just need to let people know the true condition, plenty of pics etc.

Well this morning Paypal sided with me on the claim and got a full refund as well. What's the best way to go on and ship this back without any trouble? Take pics of everything in the package, ship it with insurance/tracking/signature, and ???. Anything else I'm forgetting?

Just don't want the seller to claim anything falsely when he receives it

Sounds excessive, but since you are dealing with a decent amount of money, I would take the stuff to the PO and video (the whole time with no breaks in the recording) you wrapping the stuff in bubble wrap, packing and sealing the box, handing it to the Postal employee, and payment for shipping. I have read about a few cases where the person claims they never got what they were supposed to get from the buyer and then they open a claim with PayPal. I would spend the extra 5 minutes to cover my butt. Best of luck to you man.

Maybe find a pamphlet on ethics and send it along for the seller to read

I just sent a PM...Slo must have edited it just as I was trying too....lol

If anyone wants to see what was there do it through a PM with Romian.

Romian, please save that somewhere. I might need it if he starts crying.

FYI, we live in the age of multiple media outlets and ways to communicate. When it comes to deals that are done here, ANY of those communication outlets used to conduct the deal are considered no different than doing so through a PM. In engrish..if you wouldn't sent it in a PM, it's wise not to send it as a text, email, snail mail, camel back, smoke signals etc.
