Futaba made in China

Hey guys,
I just picked up a futaba 7c 2.4 ghz radio and was surprised to see a "made in China" sticker on it....thought they were still made in Taiwan...anyhow, I'm sure quality is still top notch....are futaba radios all made in China now?.....
I wish I had these planes when I was 14...even better, I've got them when I'm 40..

Re: Futaba made in China

Technically... Taiwan IS a part of China... but that is a long political story...

As to WHAT part of China is CURRENTLY manufacturing FUTABA... I do not know... perhaps we can find out.
Life is either a daring adventure...
...or nothing.

Re: Futaba made in China

I just checked my Futaba 8FG Tx that was purchased 2 years ago and it was still made in Taiwan then. Futaba must have outsourced a more cheaper production facility in mainland China.

Re: Futaba made in China

After reading your post I had to look at my new 8fg super to see where it was made. It is only two or three months old. It is marked that it was made in Taiwan. May be some of the newer models are being built in China.
