Default Where do I get FM Crystal Sets for Airtronics from?

When did FM crystal sets for Airtronics get so expensive?
$30.00 I am almost better off to go buy another radio system...

I must be getting really old, I remember when these where like $10.00 a set

Anyways I hope someone can point me to a place where they are cheaper than $30.00

Default $$$$$ crystal sets


That's about the going rate for original equipment FM crystal sets. You might try INTEGY . I know they sell replacement crystals for some radios. Give them a look.

Thank You popsracer

I found them there for $17.00 to $20.00, now that's more like what I want to pay.

Still makes me mad that in the electronics component industry that a simular cystal only cost like .35 cents to make and normally sells for a $1.50 each talk about mark up pricing...

Yah.. but RC crystals are tested on a Mega electro Syncro frequency tester that guarentees .00001 exactness for phase shift to eliminate glitching. blah blah blah (I'm sure they just buy them for $3 and put the channel sticker on them.

Yep.. even $20 is a rip off. The integy crystals work well though.
