It is important to note that robot kits may not be exchanged nor refunded once they are assembled in part or in entirety. Only defective components will be replaced if the need arises within the warranty period. Along these lines, please carefully read the assembly instructions for the robot and ensure that they are understood before commencing construction. If you are uncertain about any part of the assembly, please contact us, especially before applying power. Work carefully on a clean table and take regular breaks in order to maintain your concentration. Unfortunately we cannot be held responsible for mistakes made by the builder. 

Software which has been activated cannot be returned.

When storing and charging batteries and battery packs, be sure to follow standard safety procedures (for example store and charge lithium batteries in a LiPo safe bag) and use a charger which is appropriate for the battery.
