Default M8 Limited Edition question....

I've had my M8 for a couple of weeks now....I haven't been able to use it because the recievers for it are backordered . While I was messing with it today I noticed something. It has the transmitter crystal....but it does not have the reciever crystal . Did Airtronics do this just because the Limited Edition does not include reciever or servos? or did they just "forget" to put my reciever crystal in the box? Anyone got any input on this. Thanks.

They did it because there is no receiver. So yours was not missing anything...

hmmmmmmmm, I think you got lucky and got a free XTal out of the deal. My LE M8 didnt come with any XTals and neither did my friends. If you are stuck without any receivers and need to run(this will only work if you are on 27mHz)pick up one of the LRP Phaser receivers they work great and look cool to boot.

Thanks, I was about to lose my mind. I was about to send airtronics a flaming email . I order some Novak XXL 75 mhz recievers because our club is pretty big and almost everyon runs on 27 mhz because all of them "think" that no one else is running it. . Thanks again futureal and foam dounuts.

I'm not sure if you can just puy the RX crystal by itself....at least I have never seen them anywhere. I'll have to check that out since I work in the LHS.

If they are dumb enough to sell the radio with just the TX crystal.....I wouldn't put it past them to be dumb enough NOT to sell the RX crystal alone, lol

You got that right.

And I ordered M8.
What an irony.
M8 looks so beautiful and everybody else is running it.

If hitec Lynx 3d is even as half beautiful as airtronics one I would've bought it with synthesized RF module.
