I have a Hitec Servo Digital Programmer that I "let the smoke out" after connecting the fast field charger to the servo socket. My Australian Hitec agent told me it could not be repaired so I sent it to the US Hitec service centre. They looked at the programmer and called my mobile phone (I live in Australia!!) and gave the quote for the repairs. It was 1/4 the cost of a new programmer and that included postage. I will continue to use Hitec . Excellent products and service.

Amen to that! I bought a focus 4 from ebay, something went wrong with it and so I sent it in for repair. It was returned after two weeks with a new antenna and no charge. I even told them it was purchased 2nd hand. For that, I can forgive them the exhorbant prices charged for new gear.

Exhorbitant prices? They're the best bang for the buck of anything I've seen. I think the only thing I've found that's cheaper are transmitters made by GWS, and I've never bought one of those.
For my money I'm miles ahead to buy something like an Eclipse 7 and use it with everyone else's receivers as opposed to buying multiple cheap radios.
Your mileage may vary.
