By "they", are you referring to Horizon Hobbies? I was aware that the Ember might be discontinued, but I suppose I should contact HH to confirm that. If the RTF version is the only one left available, it still can be "bound" to another and better transmitter, such as the Spektrum DX6i. However, you are stuck with the OEM transmitter, to use as a paper weight!
The same "problem" exists with the Hobby Zone UM Champ. You can only get the plane in the RTF version. I was able to sell the transmitter that came with the plane to another flyer who needed it for his Ember.
