Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA)

Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA)

Return Merchandise Authorization Procedures

  1. Contact PFC Technical Support

    All returns must be accompanied by a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number and completed RMA form. To obtain an RMA number, email PFC Technical Support using this email address: techsupport (at)

  2. Returning Merchandise

    An RMA number MUST be requested AND approved prior to repair or replacement of product.  Any items returned without the RMA number will be refused.  Customers are responsible for all fees and shipping charges to return items to PFC.  RMA numbers are valid for 30 days from the date they are issued.  PFC will not accept COD or freight-collect shipments.  PFC is not responsible for goods damaged during transportation.  There will be a 15% restocking fee on all products returned.

  3. Ship only the product specified on the RMA Form

    Do not include any accessories (e.g. connectors, cables, software, CD’s, manual, etc) unless instructed by a Technical Support Representative. PFC is not liable for any accessories included in the RMA shipment.

  4. Packing and Shipping Information

    When you need to ship a product back to PFC, please follow the instructions below:

    1. Package the item carefully. Products need to be returned in their original packaging or in material of equal or greater quality. Please do not use “popcorn foam” or newspaper as filler as they do not provide sufficient protection. If the items arrive in non-original packaging or the original packaging received will not provide sufficient protection, the equipment will be returned in proper packaging with the cost included in the invoice total. 
    2. IMPORTANT:  Clearly mark the Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number on the inside and outside of each package.  Any items returned without the RMA number on the outside of the package will be refused.
    3. Enclose a completed RMA form in the package to ensure correct processing.
    4. Items must be insured for their “full replacement value” or the sender assumes the risk of loss/damage during shipment.  Please use a shipping company that can demonstrate proof of delivery (such as FedEx, UPS, etc.).
    5. Ship the pre-paid package(s) to:

      1. Precision Flight Controls
        ATTN:  RMA # xxxxxx-xxxx  <-------insert your RMA number here
        2747 Mercantile Drive, Suite 100
        Rancho Cordova, CA 95742

  5. Diagnostic Evaluation Fee

    A diagnostic evaluation fee will be applied to all RMA’s not under warranty. If the required repairs are authorized, the diagnostic fee will be applied towards repair costs.  Once your package is received, a technician will conduct the diagnostic evaluation to assess necessary repairs.  Diagnostic fees are $45 for components, $95 for desktop systems and $145 for a Modular Flight Deck.

  6. Repair Charges

    Once the evaluation has been performed, a Technical Support Representative will contact you to review the required repairs. Repair service will commence upon receipt of payment.

  7. Repair Warranty

    All repairs have a 90-day warranty. All warranties are void if PFC finds that the product has been abused, physically damaged or altered in any way.
