Disclaimer


Jim Young and T&J Models accept no responsibility for crash damage and/or loss of kits, engines, accessories, etc. incurred during operation or building of a Jim Young and T&J Model’s radio-controlled model. In most cases it is very difficult or impossible to determine whether crash damage was actually due to radio equipment failure or to operator error.
It is impossible to guarantee product compatibility for product recommendations. We provide information and suggestions to the best of our abilities based on the information available to us at the time. We are unable to guarantee successful outcomes.
All of the products sold by Jim Young and T&J Models are intended for retail consumption by our customers and are not intended for resale. We reserve the right not to sell to resellers. Any consequences arising out of the resale of merchandise purchased from Jim Young and T&J Models is the responsibility of the seller, not Jim Young and/or T&J Models. Jim Young and T&J Models may revoke the ordering privileges of customers commercially reselling our products.
Model airplane performance claims typically apply to density altitudes under 3,000 feet above sea level. If you will be flying your airplane above this, additional considerations such as motor power, choice of propeller and aircraft weight should be taken into consideration.
Additional policies may exist. Policies are not limited to those on this page. Call with any questions.
