Default xmitter repair cost

The right stick on my T6-XAS is loose and floppy. It still works, but doesn't return to center.

Anyone have an idea what it will cost for hobby services to repair?

I don't have an answer to your question, but wanted to provide you with another source for repairs in case you can't get in touch with hobby services. I've heard Radio South (www.radiosouthrc.com) does good work.

You would get a straight answer by calling hobby services or the above ref for a cost. Anything you get on here other than that would be speculative. Call them and they will give you the straight scoop.

Open it up yourself, if you're lucky the only thing that happend is the spring came lose. Just re-attach the spring and you don't need to have it repaired. If the spring broke you should be able to get one from a repair place for a few cents.

Yes, Radio South does good work at reasonable rates.

Thanks for the info guys.

I did open it up and there is broken plastic. I couldn't be so lucky to have just a spring come off.

I will call radiosouth. I couldn't find a number for Hobby services. maybe just call Tower and they could transfer me.

I am wondering if the repair will equal the value of the radio.

Thanks again,

Slopoke

I'm going to give you some speculation like the kind Flyboy warned you about...

You can find radios pretty cheap at swap meets, on Ebay, and right here in the classifieds. I would try posting a wanted add and specify all you need is the case. You might get lucky and find one cheap.
