U can try Singapore Hobby Supply, they suppose to be the agent for Futaba. But one important question they will ask....where u buy it from....???

Eric is rite & the price is reasonable with the fastest service.

Sending back 2 Japan is 1 thing. Once my buddy's Futaba 3PJ
receiver kana sent 2 Japan thru' the so-called agent 4 7 months & worst, final result - BEYOND repair.

Wait...wait...wait, not the end of story yet. The worst part is that
it cannot b found when he asked 4 the return 2 retrieve the
crystal !. Believe it or not, u better believe.

Another agent took 1 month & the cost - almost half the price of
a new 1.

Judge 4 urself who u 1 2 send 2.

Hah !, what r u trying 2 say mate ?. U sent with servos &
returned without servos ?. Then how the story ends ?.

I know the story begins like this :
1. U sent back 2 Winnie cause u bought fm her,
2. Winnie sent it 2 Toykar cause she got thru' them,
3. Toykar will send to local technician if minor problem,
4. If local technician cannot solve the problem then send
back Japan and then keep ur fingers crossed plus wait.........
5. S'pore Hobby - same story.

What is the story like over ur side Down Under mate ??

KK - no lah. i sent transmitter alone (no servo, no crystals).

i got back transmitter alone BUT in a nice new 3PJ box

was hoping they would include a servo or 2 for "customer satisfaction"

anyway .. that happened some 2 yrs back. as u may know .. i now take very good care of my TX.
