Any Interest in the Futaba 8FGA

I realize the release date is late September, but Im surprised there isn't any pre-lease info or discussion.
Just looking at the radio it looks pretty good.
I tried to find something about it at Futaba's web page and couldn't.
Seems like a hush hush deal.
I found some discussion from Germany and France but almost nothing in the United States.
If its reasonably comparable to the 10c I might consider it since its about 100 bucks less.
I mainly fly just Three channel sailplanes.
But would like to try 2.4.

Take a look at this:

This almost seems too good to be true. Those features at that price make this a better radio than the 10C, IMHO.

Now, if we only knew what the gimbals felt like......
