9 Pre Testing
Please check your item BEFORE USE. You should carry out checks and tests before using e.g. test all radio equipment including a range test. Our help pages and your manual will include information on what procedures to follow. If you require details on how to check your model before use please ask us do not proceed to use your model until you are clear on the pre checks needed.
These models are NOT TOYS. If you have no experience with the model you have purchased you will need to do some research e.g. if you have purchased a nitro model then as well as reading all the information on our site and in the product manual you should do some research on how to e.g tune and set your engine and also how to check it before use. We will offer advice and help to newcomers as much as possible but are unable to accept returns for items that have been damaged by incorrect use, from customers who are unable to adjust their models or from customers who have not fully checked their models before use.
10 Damaged/Incomplete Deliveries
If the goods you receive are damaged you must inform us immediately, if you cannot get through on the phone you should email us straight away so this can be logged and the damage reported to the courier. We have to report any damage to couriers within 3 days of receipt or a claim cannot be raised. You are entitled to a reasonable opportunity to examine the goods and we would say that this is a reasonable amount of time for customers to have checked their goods for damage therefore any reports of damage or incomplete deliveries need to be reported within 2 days of receipt.
We do not accept minor marks and damage on the packaging you receive due to shipping and handling as a fault, but we will where possible attempt to replace the damaged packaging. This is at our discretion.
We strongly advise you that if a courier delivers a parcel to you and you do not have time to check the goods there and then for damage then you should always sign for the goods as unchecked. This is not an essential requirement as if you do sign without stating unchecked and then find damage on inspection of the goods we can still make a claim with the courier if you let us know within a reasonable amount of time as stated above it just makes things our end a lot easier in the claim process if customers sign for the goods as unchecked so that the courier doesn't argue that the goods were except in good condition.
No waiver by the Seller (whether express or implied) in enforcing any of its rights under this contract shall prejudice its rights to do so in the future.
12 Force Majeure
The Seller shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform any of its obligations if the delay or failure results from events or circumstances outside its reasonable control, including but not limited to, acts of God, strikes, lock outs, accidents, war, fire, failure of any communications, telecommunications or computer system, breakdown of plant or machinery or shortage or unavailability of raw materials from a natural source of supply, and the Seller shall be entitled to a reasonable extension of its obligations.
If any term or provision of these Terms and Conditions is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason by any court of competent jurisdiction such provision shall be severed and the remainder of the provisions hereof shall continue in full force and effect as if these Terms and Conditions had been agreed with the invalid illegal or unenforceable provision eliminated.
