sucker you in with really good prices for tx, then sh8ft you for extra rx's ??

just like inkjet printers & cartridge costs :lol: :lol:


Yup, that is the idea here :)
They tell you how much better their system is compared to everyone else, give you a nice discount for the TX, then rip you off as you are locked to their RXes.

I' m pretty sure JR/Spectrum really pushed this new technology out asap because the chinese shattered their precious RX monopoly.
And because the old tech was the worst in market ;D

Im guessing Futaba is next to change ?
Or maybe they trust that all who bought futaba in the first place are all about the nice "Futaba" badge, kinda like Apple people..?
