Anyone able to purchase Futaba receivers lately? Slim pickings at most of the major hobby websites. I needed to purchase a R203GF and couldn't fine one anywhere in the USA.
Hope Futaba gets their distribution line in order soon otherwise i'll have to switch brands.

I'm about to post several Futaba receivers for sale, so if you'd like a couple PM me. I have several different models.

I agree, what a joke, not only is availability nonexistent they have had about a 15-20% price increase on product that is not even obtainable.... I am with you, I have been a die hard Futaba user since the early 90's and I will have no problem giving someone else my money who actually has products that are available and a staff to support said products.

Futaba is going to learn a hard lesson on this one I am afraid

Futaba USA just got established very recently and heard they are expecting a big shipment soon. They kind of got shafted with Hobbico filing for bankruptcy.

I have been able to get everything I needed thru eBay, although warranty/support is different if you purchase from overseas versus USA distribution. Haven't had issues with Futaba stuff I bought overseas (knock on wood).
