Has Spektrum/Horizon gone bust.
« on: October 16, 2017, 18:21:39 PM »
I have sent two receivers back to the German repair centre three weeks ago, not had any response no emails they won't answer the phone.
Where do I go from hear, I have DX 6i DX 9 and an 18, I am concerned about the communication, if this company has gone to the wall I shall have to change my direction.
Sad, because I have used this radio for years.
Any help would be appreciated .

From what I read on other forums it looks like they made a hash of transfering service to Germany and now have a big backlog to clear.
People are getting stuff back after long waits, so it looks like you just have to wait patiently.

Not good, but should improve eventually.

One of my flying buddies sent his TX to Germany for a repair and he was told that they couldn't sort it there so they sent it to the States. He might get it back in a couple of weeks time, a two to three month turnaround!  >:(
