Default Bad Hitec Digital causes crash

On the second flight of my 35% Giles, one of the 5 Hitec Digital servos that I have decided to respond erratically. I tried to land the plane, but she went in trashing the nose of the plane. The muffler was destroyed, cowl destroyed, prop destroyed, and most of the engine box and firewall was destroyed. I could get the servo to fail on the ground after the crash, and I will be sending all of my Hitec Digitals back to the re-programming. My question is can you help me out with re-assembling my plane? That servo failure is going to cost me over $300 in parts alone to repair! Yes, I realize that it's part of the sport/hobby, but you'd like to trust brand new equipment. Thanks for any replies. Oh, and I have another thread about this that includes an after crash picture here:

WalkerBoh- I am very sorry to hear about the problem. Unfortunately as per our warranty, Hitec is not responsible for incidental or coincidental damages that may occure due to the use of our products. We will check the servos to see if we can determine what happened and repair or replace them as needed. Do you know what the dates code were?
