At Advantage Hobby, we try our best for you to be completely satisfied with your purchases. We do what we can to assure you get the exact merchandise you order, and we deliver it in a timely manner. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your order, we will accept return filings within 15 days from the date of purchase under the following guidelines:
Returned merchandise must be in unused condition and in its original unopened packaging.
A 20% restocking fee will be applied to all returns. This excludes items being returned as defective for replacement. No fees are charged for exchange items for the exact same item.
The mounting of upgrade parts, installation and use of Electronics (Gyros, Governors, Batteries, Chargers, etc), charging of batteries, flying of pre-built models, and other similar actions constitutes used merchandise. Advantage Hobby does NOT accept returns on used merchandise. Advantage Hobby does not accept any returns on Lithium Polymer (Lipo) batteries. All claims regarding Lithium Polymer batteries must be handled directly through the manufacturer.
Any item that has had the package opened will be deemed as used, and will not be accepted for return credit.
Items that are returned in a condition deemed by Advantage Hobby as “Not new” due to packaging damage, missing parts, or signs of possible use will be denied credit. The customer will be liable for return shipping costs on items not accepted for return. If customer is unwilling to cover return shipping costs, products returned will be discarded at the descretion of Advantage Hobby.
Advantage Hobby does not accept returns on ANY electronic items without prior approval.
When packing your order for return, please be sure all the original packing material and instruction papers and/or manuals are included. We will be unable to process your return if parts are missing, or if items are not packed properly to avoid damage to products and their boxes and/or packages.
Please submit an Amazon return request, and wait for return approval before shipping your item back to us. All returns not approved in advance will be refused at delivery.
On authorized returns, shipping charges will only be refunded if the return was due to a shipping error by Advantage Hobby. All other shipping charges will not be refunded, just the cost of the actual item being returned minus applicable restocking fees. The customer is responsible for insured shipping back to Advantage Hobby.
Returns sent COD will also not be accepted.
If a package has been damaged in shipping, please REFUSE the delivery. If you have already accepted a package, and then discover that it has been damaged, please call us as soon as possible. Be sure to save all paperwork and packing material with the damaged goods. The carrier may wish to inspect it before processing the claim. Please do not return damaged-in-shipment merchandise to us yourself as it could affect your claim and keep you from receiving credit for the damaged return.
Since packaging can easily be damaged in shipping with no damage occuring to the actual product, Advantage Hobby honors damage claims for the actual product/item only. Advantage Hobby is not responsible for damage in shipping to the shipping carton or display packaging for an item, only damage to the item itself.
Advantage Hobby accepts no liability for damages than can occur during the delivery of international shipments (orders shipped outside the 50 US States).
