Radio Repairs in Canada? Anyone know where?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have a Futaba FP-R127DF receiver that I was using with my Super 7 radio and it has become insensitive after a couple of serious crashes. I'm only getting a few hundred feet of range with the antenna extended. I borrowed another receiver and changed the crystal in my transmitter to match and everything is normal so I know the problem is with the receiver not the transmitter.
Does anyone know where I could have the receiver serviced? The only place I know of is Udisco in Montreal and I haven't dealt with them for years and I know they were very expensive to deal with.
Much appreciated.

Futaba used to do their own repairs in the states, although it seems there was some change in the past year. Sent my Conquest and 127 down about 3 yrs ago and it was back in about 3 weeks.

Thanks Argus... I ended up buying a new receiver. The cost was about the same as sending the old one down to the States to Futaba.
