Limited Warranty

We warranty that the Product(s) purchased (the "Product") will be free from defects in materials and workmanship when the product is new (before being used) for the limited warranty term period, 30 days, from the date of purchase by the Purchaser.

If you believe a defect in material, workmanship, etc. was not apparent when the Product was new and only became evident after the Product was used, take the following steps. If you purchased the Product at a HobbyTown store, please contact your local HobbyTown store for warranty support and/or service. If you purchased the Product from the Firelands website, use the contact information found under the Support heading to contact Firelands directly.

If you contact Firelands, you may be asked to send the product to Firelands, at your cost, for inspection. Provided the warranty conditions have been met within the warranty term period, the components that are found to be defective, incorrectly manufactured or assembled may be repaired or replaced, at the sole discretion of Firelands. Your warranty item will be returned to you at Firelands' expense. In the event your product needs repair or a replacement part that is not covered by this warranty, your local HobbyTown store or Firelands can assist you with support and in obtaining the genuine replacement parts to repair your Product. Firelands will charge $40.00 per hour plus the cost of replacement parts to service your vehicle if after contacting you, you so authorize such repairs. Your product will be returned to you at your expense.

If you purchased your Product from a HobbyTown Internet site not affiliated with a local store, please consult that site for its support and service policies. You can also find more information at
