Default the worst thing ever just happened.

the worst thing ever just happened. i was walking out of my house and i had the aero ace box in my hands and the plane and transmitter on top of the box (cause i had another plane in the box) and when i tried to shut the door behind me the radio dropped off the box and fell 5 ft down to the ground. the case that holds the charging wire got ripped off and shattered and the throttle stick was making weird sounds. i tried to use it nothin worked.[:@] so i opened it up and saw that the throttle control board was broken in half right down the middle.[:@][:@]. is there any fix or is it gone for good. but i weant to aero ace mods and saw this awesome aero ace radio. it's got a lot of features including clip for the plane to clip on, no spring in the throttle stick, the steering mod so you can steer without throttle, and the best feature of all a switch at the top to change frequencies wth the click of a switch.

how do you put pics on here cause if i knew how i could show you guys the damage. i am going to be way more careful now.

if the PCB for the throttle is broken in half, its pretty much dead, unless you are pretty good with a soldering iron and very fine gauge wire. and if you're that good, doing the mods that are done on the TX that aeroacemods sells would take you an hour or so (the steering without throttle mod takes about 5-10 minutes and costs about 2 dollars for the diodes that are sold at radio shack).

for the cost of the modded TX, plus 9.00 for 2-7 (probably closer to 7) day shipping, you could buy a whole new AA and have cash left over.
