I ordered mine. The flash sale was listed on the flash sale page at BG and also on the item itself, so if they messed up the price, they messed it up in two places. I hope not. Today it is $260 not $150. TGTBT? I hope it's not factory seconds, or worse still a fake. Wait and see I guess.

The sale had a 5 day countdown timer on it, yet the sale ended after about 6 hours. I did some math, and at one point they were selling one every 45 seconds.

Someone mentioned warranty. The Taranis is for the most part repairable, which is one of many things that I like about it. For $110 off I'll take a chance.

I worry about factory 3'rds😀.
The sale count went up to over 800. That would be a lot of seconds and I'm sure would exceed any prior inventory. It will interesting to see what everyone receives and when. My only thought on a possible scenario would be to originally liquidate the questionable versions with the high SWR ipx connector condition they now solder again and the orders skyrocketed too fast!
Frsky would still have a warrantee situation but how many would return it to China?
I did read a post on the banggood site where someone was upset that they ordered a mode1 and it came as a mode2. Their reply was we order new from Frsky and that's all they send us. That tells me these may be all new.
Of course we all know we can easily change the mode with a screwdriver and a menu option change.

This sale is sure to keep the forums humming until all 800+ are delivered when ever that happens? Hopefully this year being it's 800+.
That and getting Zadig and usb working in windows 10 will be popular topics.

Then the Frsky radio could be released. More exciting posts.
Exciting times.

I'm wondering if FRSky instigated it intentionally by offering them a massive wholesale deal on the next "containerload" so they could pull in some liquid funds; maybe to get the new assembly lines up & running.

For sure, gonna be interesting times ahead!

I wonder if the other vendors will even see a new plus for awhile when this order hits Frsky?
I'm starting to see more of them at my local field. I don't feel all alone as I did 2 years ago. I talked to a flyer at a club meeting where he mentioned in radio conversation, that he was selling off all his Futaba gear. I asked him if he was giving up the hobby? He said no, he was buying a Taranis Plus. It was than that I flashed him the secret Taranis sign, "a big smile" and welcomed him aboard.😀
When I see a Taranis controlling a twin turbine jet, I'll know we've arrived. So far no turbines but I'm on the lookout.
I think some of them arrive in a tractor trailer carrier, wow are the getting huge!
