T-34 Mentor versions. No BNF?

I was looking to get a T-34 Mentor. E-flite seems to only have an RFT version which includes a DX6i. I alread have a DX6i. Do they not make a BNF version? Seems like there used to be an ARF version but even that is no longer available. Any idea why they stopped the ARF version? Is there a similar or equivelent model? I am looking for a .40-size electric plane, not very hard to fly. The T-34 sounded just right.

They did have one, minus the droops & radio. Discontinued now.

The ePTS version with the tx is not a bad deal. You can always sell the radio and recoup some of the $$ you paid for the plane. Not sure what prices are like these days, but I got $100 for my DX6i about a year ago.

I won't do that on principle. I have a perfectly good DX6i. I just want the plane.

Eflite discontinued the ARF because the RTF was out selling it due to the price. You add up everything needed for the ARF version and you are way past the RTF price. Sticking to principles is fine, but you may pass up the opportunity to get this plane. I have one myself and love the way it flies.
