Buy a plane, work to pay it off buy another and repeat. It really is a vicious cycle.

Thumbs up Re: hobby king selling "authentic" jr and futaba radios

A lot of us (JR guys) have been buying them from here (link below) actually since JR started to sell them last year. Mainly because the DMSS stuff was not available from H.H. until after Toledo.

The companies including Hobby King don't have much of a service system which of course costs money and so adds to the cost.

If someone buys one of these from Hobby King and you need warranted work let us know how you make out. I see lots of complaints about their past performance.

Re: hobby king selling "authentic" jr and futaba radios

I'm not sure why you would think Horizon has any control over who JR and Futaba decide to have as distributors outside of North America.

JR is a Japanese company and while Horizon has their North American Distribution, that's all they have. Great Planes is Futaba's North American distributor.
Helicopters: Walkera(10?), Esky(3), Blade(5), Align(7), Miniature Aircraft(2), Hirobo(2), Mikado(2), Century(3), Thunder Tiger(4), Gaui (5).
Trucks/Cars: Tamiya(8 ), Traxxas(6), HPI(1), Losi(2), Ofna(2), Thunder Tiger(2), Hot Bodies(1), Axial (1).
Boats: 4
Snowcat: 1 Kyosho Blizzard (electric)
Snowmobiles: 2 x Polaris (toy grade), art attack electric

Re: hobby king selling "authentic" jr and futaba radios

so what's the problem here, radios are not like CD or T-shirts, can just copy and tag.
