Default Amain and Futaba surface TX stock

I have noticed that Amain has zero Futaba surface TX in stock. I was going to get a new radio however going with Futaba now concerns me since the stock is not there and has not been for a while now. What is going on with this ?

This has been happening for a while now. Someone in the forum mentioned that Futaba's US distributor is closing shop and Futaba was in negotiations to getting a new one.
I don't think there is a need to be concerned as they have been around forever and I'm sure things would work out soon.

Just my 2 cents

To my Understanding when Horizon Hobby purchased Hobbico,great planes etc that included futaba distribution that had to be reset up with there company. so there is going to be a transition period where there will little to no product while this happens. I am sure they are working on it as fast as possible to get product flowing again, but for know all we can do is wait and see.
