Default Should I send my reciever in?

I had a crash a other day, it was pretty hard. Now everything checks out ok. I did a bunch of range checks, with the engine running at various settings. All is ok. Does anyone know what they actually do to "check out a reciever"? I would love to have the peace of mind of sending it in, But really dont want to if things are ok now. Let me hear what some of you experianced guys would do. Thanks!!

Personally, I would, if not just to test the crystal.

I have tested my electronics after a crash and everything worked OK.
I sent it all in to be checked and a filter was bad and was replaced.
The cost was $35 if I remember correctly. This was replaced, calibrated and shipped for that price.
If your model is worth more than $35, then I would send it in.

I have seen guys use receivers that were previously crashed hard and they work fine for quite a while then suddenly it fails. Most of them will work after an crash or being immersed in water for that matter but in the long haul alot of them probably fail. I agree that sending it in is wise. In some cases if it is a cheaper reciever then I have thrown them away. Fortunatly I have only had a couple of truly hard hits.
