Default Futaba Megatech 3PK

Anyone know if these are for sale in the U.S. yet or where one might purchase it.

Because a radio should be chosen by how it feels/drives. It is your connection to the car and the better you interact with it, the better you can "feel" what the car is doing. They all pretty much have the same features. I do not like the way the M8 feels in my hands. My favorite is KO. Futaba also feels good to me, but I would like to hold the new 3PK before I make a decision on it. It looks great and has some really innovative designs. Steering is regarded as one of the smoothest available. The M8SS looks pretty much like the M8.

I have a friend works a a local hobby shop here in AZ. He made a call to Great Planes and a guy there said it should be available in the U.S. sometime in late September and the retail price would be around $430-$450 U.S.D. So I'm pretty sure the sale price will be somewhere in the mid to low 300's.
