Horizon Hobby warranty service for 2nd owners?

Hey all..

I have heard of people sending in 2nd owner/used Rx's and HH will check them out under warranty.

what about radios?
I have a silver DSMX edition DX6i I got from another owner, so I dont have the original receipt..

The radio will lose signal with any Rx I bind or have bound it to..

the service request form said I must provide proof of purchase..
What do I do since I don't have one?


and if I could get them to honor warranty work on it, is it worth spending $20 in shipping to try and get a $60 radio repaired?


:help

Have you called them? They'll tell you what's up. And, no I wouldn't consider sending such a cheap radio back to be worth it, especially if they charge you return shipping since you're not the original owner and I'll bet it's out of the 1 year warranty period anyway. That's a double ding against you right there. The DX6i is an old and pretty much obsolete radio these days. The much newer black DX6 is a far better radio for the money.

The DX6i had a lot of issues anyway. I'd never trust one even if it currently appeared to be working properly.

guess I didnt do enough research.. I just noticed alot of people using them a year ago, so I got one.

I'm steering towards using only FrSky from now on.

It was an old radio and discontinued even back then.
