Between July 1 and October 31, 2012, our expert technicians will restore your qualifying used radio to factory specs — at no charge.
If you’ve upgraded to the 18MZ within the last 30 days and now have a 14MZ, 12Z or 12FG to sell, the Futaba Certified Pre-Owned Program is a great way to return your old radio to factory specs and increase its value to potential buyers. Send your used radio to the Futaba Service Center, and we will:
● Check for exterior broken or loose parts
● Check gimbals, switches and auxiliary controls for proper operation
● Check the power output
● Replace the backup battery if over 5 years old (14MZ only)
● Clear all model memory*
● Reset all operational parameters to factory specs
● Complete the operational check
● Provide all these services FREE — normal cost, $43.75!
● Provide return ground shipping FREE — normal cost, $9.99! (See Shipping Options on the request form for expedited delivery charges.)
* If you intend to restore your model memory later, you must save the data to your model memory card. Do not send in the card with your radio.
New buyers also enjoy 60-day limited warranty coverage!
As long as you sell your 14MZ, 12Z or 12FG within 90 days of receiving its free checkup, the Futaba Service Center will offer the new buyer a 60-day limited warranty — featuring the same protection as the radio’s original warranty. The 60 days begin at the date of resale.
