or8ital ordered something around 3 months ago and nothing. Most people with different RC parts would ask for thier money back. But as everybody knows AMB will jack up the price soon so you have to wait it out.
Just for fun can anybody think of anything that you have to pay for 3 months in advance? Maybe a Ferrari? Magazines?
Maybe it just a big scam,where there inst any new transponder. But they say there is,at a cheaper price than the old one, so they get the money first to develope a new transponder,3+months later "New Transponder". The "New Transponder" has features that nobody can access now because everybody has the old system that isnt set up for it,so they could use the old transponder in the new case for timeing "Look it works". OK everybody send money,AMB has alot of cash now making intrest in the bank for a few months while everybody waits while AMB figures out how to make a "New Transponder" then poof 3+ months later look new transponder.
Its not a bad idea, everybody could send $500 to thier favorite RC company with a nice note.
Here is $500 so you can develope an new touring car for next year. I hope this down payment will really get you going in the right direction.Whenever you design,test and manufactor this new chassis please foward it to me.
This could work for all sorts of things,brushless systems,Transmitters,tires, wheels,bodies.
Think of how many people want a AMC body for VTA. Send $25 dollars to Proto-Form so old Dale will make a Javalin. Whats a basic body mold cost something around $5000. 200 People sending in $25 might get the gears turning.
It could be a whole Jerry Lewis tele-thon for RC parts that people want.
Thats a really long rant but if people are willing to wait for a transponder,why not other items.
I will buy a new AMB Transponder,because they work great. Just waiting for news before sending money.
