In the rare case that your item(s) unfortunately arrive damaged replacements are usually offered at no charge. However, should you choose not to pursue replacements the damaged or defective products can be returned for credit as outlined in our Standard Return Policy.

What If My Order Arrives Damaged?

Our intention is to ensure your item arrives in perfect condition. In the unlikely event that your order arrives damaged we will make every effort to help you obtain the necessary replacements as quickly as possible at no extra cost to you. We encourage our customers to accept their order despite the condition at delivery. This is because a refusal of a damaged shipment can increase the time it takes to process replacements. Most manufacturers that RC Hobby Estore works with will replace whichever parts are needed to give you a complete undamaged unit. This is often quicker than replacing a whole item. If there are too many damaged parts, a new unit may be sent to you at the manufacturer’s discretion. If a new unit is sent out, it will be sent with the same shipping method and processing time as the original order unless special circumstances apply. If tracking information is available for the replacements it will be sent to you via email. In some cases you may be required to provide photos in order to fulfill your replacement requests. Photos are generally requested to confirm the extent of damages for the manufacturer to determine if replacement parts or a full unit replacement is required. If a full replacement unit is sent, the original item becomes the property of RC Hobby Estore. Occasionally our carrier may pick up the damaged or defective items for inspection. Because of this, all items should be kept in their original packaging until further instructions are received from a RC Hobby Estore customer support person.
