dude, don't buy a new one. Novak's customer service is one of, if not the best inthe industry.

There was this guy getting out of the hobby and selling everything he had. In his bag of stuff he had a Cyclone TC but the switch was broken and one of the resistors or something electronic was fried. I got this from him for $5.00. I send Novak and email and they said no problem fill-out the form and send it to us and we'll replace it. What I got was a rebuilt Cyclone for $50.00 ($45.00 plus the $5.00 I paid for it). Awesome. I got a $120.00 for more than half off.
