Just buy it at Hobby Hobby, they're in 'sauga. In stock. (with rx) You can find them without rx it's a little cheaper, or do what everyoen else does. Purchase a DX8 and sell the ar8000 on the forum.

Re: Online DX8 store?

Thanks for the advice guys.

I actually decided to call my LFS to see what their pricing was like and it was exactly the same as HobbyHobby. They only had the Radio /w receiver package in-stock, but... Spektrum has a promo now where you get 2 receivers in that kit for the same price as 1.

I'll try to sell the 2 receivers in the Classifides and hopefully come out even...

Re: Online DX8 store?

Note: Horizon Hobby's pricing is 'fixed'. Retailers are not allowed to discount or advertise prices lower than MSRP.

If you are a club member, you may be able to get discounts at your LHS.
