    DX8 Gimbal failure

    During a flight last night, I felt and heard a little "click" and all the sudden had all kinds of issues with elevator. The stick now goes to full up when released. We took the back off the TX and it looks like a plastic piece that holds some kind of stop pin is broken so the stick no longer centers and goes to full up. The radio is only a bit over a year old. Anyone had this issue?

    Obviously it will need to go in so I am also wondering about turn-around time for repairs. Naturally it is the meat of the flying season. In the next couple of weeks things are going to really get going and I have plans to attend events several weeks in a row-and no radio. (Which is making me re-think the lack of a spare TX!)

    Thanks.

    RE: DX8 Gimbal failure

    Turnaround times at Horizon are very quick. I returned my DX8 to replace the gimbal potentiometer with 7 working day turnaround not including shipping time. Call horizon to get the current estimated time.
