Limitation of Liability

In no event shall HobbyWave be liable for any actual, direct, indirect, special, punitive, incidental, exemplary or consequential damages, or any other damages whatsoever, even if HobbyWave has been previously advised of the possibility of such damages, whether in an action under contract, tort or under any other theory, arising out of or in connection with the use, inability to use, or performance of the information, products and materials on this site. Because some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, some or all of the above limitations may not apply to you. HobbyWave shall be under no liability for any delay or failure to deliver products or otherwise perform any obligation as specified in these legal conditions if the same is wholly or partly caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control.


You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless HobbyWave, its affiliates, and all of their employees, agents, officers, directors, proprietors, partners, representatives, shareholders, servants, attorneys, accountants, predecessors, successors, and assigns from and against any and all claims, proceedings, damages, injuries, liabilities, losses, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees and litigation expenses) relating to or arising from your use of this site or any breach by you of these Terms and Conditions.

Risk of Loss

All items purchased from HobbyWave are made pursuant to a shipment contract; the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery of the items to the carrier.

Online Purchase Information

This Online Purchase Information governs purchases made through HobbyWave.


Depending on availability, purchases may be made either directly through HobbyWave or through the assistance of a customer services support representative.

Online purchases from HobbyWave may be made by anyone, for delivery to a billing address, as registered with the clients' credit card company. To secure both us and our customers from potential credit card fraud, we may ask our customers to provide us with bank phone number on the back of the credit card to verify card holder. Immediately after an order has been submitted, an automated sales invoice will be forwarded to the email provided to us during the order process. This sales invoice should be retained for any future references. Without this receipt, we would not be able to validate your purchase, and accordingly, will not be able to proceed with any requests.


All products from this website are subject to availability; as necessary, we reserve the right to limit the quantity of products we supply; supply only part of an order or to divide up orders. We do keep most items in stock, but merchandise may go in and out of inventory from time to time. For more updates, a HobbyWave customer support staff will be pleased to assist you via email. We recommend that you provide the SKU of item of interest.

Pricing and Payment Options

While we try to ensure that all prices on our website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of the merchandise you have ordered, we will give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or canceling it. If we are unable to contact you, we will treat the order as cancelled within 48 hours of our attempt to communicate with you. Prices displayed on HobbyWave are quoted in U.S. dollars, unless otherwise specified.

Sales Tax and Custom & Duties

Given that HobbyWave ships worldwide, we do not charge federal, state, local or county taxes on online transactions (unless otherwise specified); however, it is the customer's sole responsibility to ensure proper payments as required by applicable laws. Therefore, please note that your on-screen transaction total "does not" reflect estimated tax (unless otherwise specified). The actual sales tax should be calculated by you when your order is shipped. The customer is also responsible for all customs and duties at the point of entry into the country of destination.

Shipping and Delivery

All purchases are shipped with one of our shipping agents. We give tracking numbers for all orders we ship unless otherwise prior written agreement between HobbyWave and its customer. Orders are processed and delivered Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. HobbyWave cannot be responsible for unanticipated delays of shipping agents.

Customers are responsible for providing a full valid address, including apartment number, and buzzer code if applicable, for delivery. Customers are entirely responsible for ensuring the receipt of the package, and HobbyWave WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE for returned orders due in part by customer negligence. We can not ship such orders again unless otherwise shipping cost is repaid.


A shipping confirmation may be requested by the customer approximately two to four business days after submitting an order. In addition, we will email a sales invoice immediately after an order is placed for confirmation that your purchase had been accepted for processing. Customers may also try out our self-serve tracking system by loggin on to your account. To ensure the security of your delivery, we are unable to provide you with details on our communications with our shipping agents. However, we do provide tracking numbers upon request, and maintain tracking numbers for each delivery. At times, there may be an error in providing this information to customers. As this information is provided to us by our shipping agents, customers may submit another request for further clarification. We are not liable and/or responsible for any losses or damages that may arise given such an occurrence. If you have questions about the delivery of your purchase, a HobbyWave customer support staff will be pleased to assist you via email.

Refund and Exchanges

HobbyWave wants to ensure your continued satisfaction. For HobbyWave online purchases, we are able to accept original product in the original sealed box in saleable condition with a receipt (order id) and within the 30 day return period from original date of purchase (excluding shipping).

Exchanges will ONLY be offered if the original is defective & unopened, with receipt (order id) and within the 30 day return period from original date of purchase.

NOTE: Please check all the items carefully BEFORE opening the plastic clear wrap. Once opened, we cannot accept it for refund/exchange.


If you wish to cancel or modify your order, please contact us as soon as possible. We will make every effort to accommodate your request; however, once a product has left our premises for processing and shipping, the purchase cannot be cancelled nor modified. In this case, please refer to our Refund and Exchanges & Shipping and Delivery policy above. All the orders are shipped out within 2~3 business days after the orders have been placed into our system.
