A known issue on Brain2/iKON2 is that after some time, more commonly on internal combustion helicopters with lots of vibration, the solder holding the pinheaders to the PCB can crack, causing intermittent servo jitters, temporary loss of control, and sometimes outright failure. This is due to the use of brittle unleaded solder (something required for MSH to comply with lead-free regulations). While unfortunate, it is typically a simple fix. We can do that for you. Full proper removal and replacement of the unleaded solder with a more resilient 63/37 alloy.

By default there is a $10 charge to add shipping insurance to the shipment from us. If you opt not to add shipping insurance (select "No" on the product page), we cannot and will not be liable for loss or damage in shipping to/from us. Shipping insurance is only an additional $10 and will protect you if USPS/UPS decide to throw your package out the back of the truck. Seeing as many of the items sent for repair are quite expensive, it's highly recommended that you do not waive the insurance charge.
This service will most likely void your manufacturer's warranty.
