Return Policy

Have a problem with your product? Simply need to make a return? Don’t need what you ordered? Check below for help with your returns, along with our stated guidelines regarding these matters.

New/Unused Item Not Needed/Wanted or Otherwise:

For new/unused items, we can accept these back (14) days after the original purchase date – return shipping will be customers responsibility, and no refunds, credits or discounts can be offered for any return shipping fees.

If the item is new, unused and without fault or damage (still in re-sale condition), we can offer store credit for the return merchandise item, valued at the amount that was paid via the original purchase – shipping charges are not included. If a refund is requested via Credit Card or PayPal.

Engines that have been run, kits that have been partially or fully built, items that have been soldered, or products that have been cut, punctured, modified or otherwise, will not be accepted as a return. Helicopter kits that have been “test flown” will not be accepted as a return item.

All approved return items will require a RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) number before being shipped back to our location. This number aids us in the ability to properly handle your return – without an RMA number, your package has a high probability of being mis-handled, lost or delays, and Aero Hobbies will take no responsibility for any return that does not have an approved RMA number. Please contact our staff for proper RMA information, as we are happy to help you.

Packages that have missing items, parts or otherwise will be returned to the customer and will not be eligible for any credit, refund or otherwise.

When packing your item(s) for return, be sure all original pieces and documents are included in the package, assorted as in original factory condition. If items are missing, damaged or otherwise, your return will not be able to be processed or accepted, and will be returned direct to you.

Return shipping can be whatever manner that suits you best, but must be safe, ensuring the package arrives to us without being damaged. Return shipping fees cannot be credited or refunded, no matter what the cost may be, so avoid high cost methods, such as 2nd Day Air & Overnight shipping, as these are not necessary methods for a return. We recommend using a “tracked” method of shipping, which will allow you to verify that the return has made it to our facility.

Returns sent via COD will not be accepted; customer is bound to pay shipping fees for any new/unused item, and no compensation can be offered.

Faulty/Damaged or Warranty Returns

For any item that is faulty, damaged, or falls upon warranty related issues, please contact our customer service department for help, and we will be sure to assist you in every way possible in regards to the matter at hand.

Please note that some products or items will be replaced and/or repaired direct via the manufacture, no matter when the item/product was purchased. In this case, feel free to contact us for help, and we will issue you the proper contact information so the item can be addressed via the manufacturer, as some manufacturers deal with all warranty related items direct, rather than through the original re-seller.

Once an RMA number is received, please ship back to us via standard shipping – no upgraded shipping method, such as 2nd Day Air, Overnight, or EMS will be credited or refunded. Returns can take several days to be processed – please see below section for greater detail on returns and how they are handled.
