Default problems w/ JR XR3i

So I was wondering if anyone has had any problems with this particular radio, or any other JR radio...

Did you crank on it and break the back of the steering wheel?

no, I opened the box (never used) put new batteries in it to program everything, turned the wheel left to right and i heard a "snap" w/ no effort. Then the wheel just stuck to either L or R. I tried to bring it back to my local hobby shop, but in return they told me to send it directly to horizon...which I've done. Now I'm playing the waiting game. I really hope I get it back soon. Sucks to spend $$ on a product and then have it break w/out having it for more than 1 hour, and less than that out of the box.

my cheappie air tronix lasted me 1 month before I bought this...which I really love..i think i just got a lemon out of 1,........ I've got a few friends racing w/ this controller, and its been the best/trial that I've found for myself.

sucks. now i just have my fac tc3 to stare at for now.

Whatever went wrong, Horizon will take care of it. Could b defective, could be shipping damage, could be the guy who looked at it before you at he hobby shop messed it up.
