This just goes to show how much profit is being made by JR/Specktrum on their receivers. The actual cost to manufacture spectrum receivers is much less than the that of 72MHz receivers so hopefully when they feel they have recovered their R&D costs they will come down in price. The cost differential between their receivers is probably in the range of $5 but to charge $50 or more seems out of line.

I don't mean to bad mouth JR?Spektrum as I have just converted to their X9303 and love it but really have a tough time spending a couple of thousand dollars to replace the 15 to 20 72MHz receivers I have. They better hope that someone doesn't break their propriatary firmware code and come out with a bunch of $20 receivers.
