Got a killer deal on a Futaba 4PKS from Tower Hobbies.

Had it now since Friday. Was setting it up Friday night all good.
Went to contiune the set up Saturday afternoon and notice lines missing in the LCD Screen. Checked just now more lines missing.
Looks like it will be going back :(

Got an Exchange.
They originally wanted me to contact Futaba directly.
I disputed saying it was basically DOA, and that I bought it from Tower, so that's who I deal with.

Postage was $60, so that sucked, only consolation was I got to keep the battery. Was sent a whole new kit..

Well done.
Pity you can't claim on postage. Anyway, good luck with the new controller.

Turns out they did refund my postage, but was in store credit...!

cool, a new radio is a good thing, makes it easier to control your model. glad to hear it worked out for you in the end, now you can go nuts and buy more stuff:)
