Dang. That place is charging $53 for shipping to the US.

I wonder if Hobbypartz.com will be selling the radio?

Are you sure that wasn't RM $53 (~$21.70 USD). Everything else on that website was only listed in RM.

$22 would be more like it....

That's ridiculous. They obviously aren't going to send many to the USA with that kind of shipping. I was somewhat interested, but I wasn't going to register just to see what it cost. Not interested any longer though. Thanks

Ok, just brought it home yesterday, took it out of the box, its pretty lightweight! When i turned it on, it looks pretty impressive with the lighted up LCD screen. Having said that, the LCD screen doesn't stay lighted after a while, it just dimmed out (or maybe its just the way it is with the other TX with LCD screen, I don't know, never had the chance to use them before) Binding was easy.

I didn't had the chance to use the FS-GT3 so I don't know about that version, but I think its pretty much the same here with this 1. I did however used the FS-GT2 before, so what ever you don't have in the gt2, you'll get it here in gt3b (which i would think the gt3 also has, minus the lighted up LCD screen).

The manual is in the CD that they gave together with it, which i think is not so practical. I prefer a booklet (but you could still print it out). Lots of chinglish even my chinese friends had a good laughed. But its pretty easy to understand. Oh it has a 'fail safe' system too.

Well, haven't had the chance to really test this 1 out yet, but looks good (looks can be deceiving )

p/s: I wonder what the 'B' stands for in FS-GT3B... (BETA??? )

Tried to order one from rcsmart, but could not get past the 2nd screen where you choose shipping option. Anyone else have this problem? Is there another website i could get it from?

Any more news on this?? I am about to order 2 of them within the next couple days and was wondering if you had a chance to really spend some time using this system.

Default Is it worth it....?

So I received an email back from Rcsmart and it would cost me about $20.00USD to ship to BC, Canada. The cost of the TX would be about $62.00USD.

I'm on the fence because I'm worried about the quality and so on. I just don't want to be the guinea pig...come on guys somebody else do it and report back some good info with good picture if possible.

No, but they accept paypal payment so If anything happens you can always dispute it through paypal.But really browsing the site it looks like a legit heli/plane site that happens to carry some car stuff.

I wish you had found that site a couple days back! I could have saved $20.00!LOL.

Default keep us informed

I'm looking forward to what you think of it...keep us up to date.
If you've got time can you snap a few shots or a short blurb on youtube would be great.

I can do that.It probally wont be until next sunday or monday on the pics,but I will post my opinion as soon as I drive with it.If it's as well constructed as the GT2 and GT3 it should be a really solid radio.
