Help radio repairs!!!!

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Can someone help me out here? Pete Waters has gone south for several months. He was local and did most of the radio repairs for our area. Is there someone in Canada, Ontario preferably who is a factory authorized repair depot?

I dont know there arent any factory authorised depots for Airtonics or JR, I have asked both and been told to send to the respective US parent companies.

Futaba? I dont know...

Hitec? I know Hiflight says to send back to Hitec in the USA also...

I have dealt with Horizon Hobby (jr), Airtronics more than once, and Hitec twice as well. They were all fast turnaround, and good to deal with.

Hi ; I know of one guy in Scarborough, Ontario ; who I have dealt with for radio repairs and also the local hobby shop has used his services for many years.

That man is none other than Ron Chapman. He is a great guy to deal with and more than fair on his prices.

PM me and I will give you his number if your interested.

I have heard good things about his service.

I'm not sure but I think he is a member of RC Canada.

Ron used to be the "authorized repair" for a major brand, not sure if that's still true but all of our stuff goes to him either directly or via the LHS for tuning, crash assessment or receivers etc etc.

The gentleman knows what he is doing and he is an avid hobbyist as well.

As far as Futaba goes, the only authorized service center anymore is Hobby Services in Illinois. Radio South and others can do it but they dont carry the "authorized" title anymore.
