You have the right to cancel within 14 working days after the day you take receipt of goods. You must notify us within this time that you wish to cancel. You are required to take good care of the goods and return them to us at your own cost within 7 days of receipt.

To exercise your right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel your order. This must be in writing, before returning any goods, and informing us that you are returning the goods and why. Returns address will be the same as the address from which the goods were shipped.

Please Note: ALL items being returned must be in “as New” condition and this includes all packaging and manuals. A product that has been used or removed from packaging will not be considered 'as-New'. AerobatX Ltd must be contacted before items that have been used or opened, can be returned and these will incur a surcharge, if return is possible. If the returned item is in a condition which does not enable us to resell as new, we reserve the right to make a charge from any refund to cover this cost. We recommend that goods are returned by recorded or insured delivery. We shall aim to refund you within 30 days providing the aforementioned conditions are met

No refund will be provided for lost goods being returned to us, as this is the responsibility of the sender.

Customers who believe they have a faulty item should seek our assistance before returning the items by calling or emailing us. If goods are returned with a fault, they will either be inspected by us OR may need to be sent back to the supplier for inspection. In this case we will wait for the supplier’s decision, before replacing or refunding the goods. If the supplier decides the item has been damaged by the customer, no refund or replacement will be given. This decision is final. Shipping and packaging charges for returning merchandise that proves not to be faulty, will not be borne by us. Any unnecessary charges incurred by us may result in being billed to the customer.

If a shipment arrives at your door with apparent shipping damage, please do not accept the delivery. If you have already accepted delivery and then find shipping damage, please take pictures and send them to us immediately. Please save all packaging material and paperwork; do not throw anything away! We may be asked by couriers to show all packaging materials in the event of a claim

It is not impossible that occasionally an incorrect item may be sent, if so please inform us right away and allow us the opportunity to rectify this for you ASAP.

Refunds - Please note no refunds will be processed until we have the returned items in our store.  Return Shipping costs are not refundable and are for the buyers account, unless prior arrangement has been made with AerobatX. On any orders that may qualify for free shipping, on return of these the shipping costs will be deducted from any monies due to you, as although you have not paid shipping costs, we have already done so.

If you cancel any orders or items after the 14 days we reserve the right to charge a minimum 10% restocking charge.

Items that were not stock items at the time of ordering, are customised products, or Custom orders on behalf of a customer, are not returnable. E.g.: aircraft with custom colour schemes etc. Any deposits paid on these pre-orders are also non-refundable as often these products are custom built only on reciept of the deposit by the manufacturer.

If the product is a 'Ready to Fly', or pre-built item, it is the customers responsibility to ensure that the product is working correctly before attempting to fly the model. This includes a full pre-flight check, to ensure proper operation. We cannot be held accountable for any issues found after a flight has been attempted, were the model gets damaged in use, as this will be deemed to be pilot error, for which we will not be held accountable for. If a Pre-built model is being returned, the model MUST be in it's original condition and not used whether flown or not.
