Default Hobby Services Actually Surprised Me; Not Happy, But surprised!!!

I got the estimate back on the repair of the OS1.40RX. $435.00!!! The engine was basically shot: bearings, piston, cylinder and pump, all kaput.

The surprise was when Hobby Services says they would give me an engine replacement for $270, which I estimate was near cost. I guess when they figure you already bought a $450 engine, you should get some sort of brake after it gets worn out quickly.

Anyway, not happy; but $270 is better than the $400+ for any engine I could have gotten as a replacement. The repair bill of $435 was all parts. the labor charge was only $45.
