You do know there is other case that will protect you're transmitter just as same for half the size and still made out of metal instead of case. But congratulation for your'e wonderful radio. Bling her up brother.

Okay maybe less. :P

The XHeli one doesn't say Futaba on it. If you're going to bling it up, you gotta go all the way!

Well telling the truth Futaba doesn't have bling for our radio. LOL But the bottom is way better case.

I've seen neckstraps like that here in Chinatown part of Los Angeles. For $1.75 I don't think you're getting the real deal.

You mean it's not the original that Futaba make? Well let see. I see

Genuine



Then the ebay. Not bad for the price. But for sure this one isn't made by Futaba you can tell by the quality. I would buy it. How about you guys?

Yup for that price it does look nice. Beside nobody is going to look at the neck strap they'll look at the radio it self.

I am on my 2nd one. First 1 last for about 2 years on my 7c. Then few month back when i got my 8fg i crack the metal hook. In fact when i broke the first one the second one was already ordered since the old one was all dirty and old.

i really like the latch system on the futaba team case as well as how solid it feels could not compare to the common sence one or even that other futaba case

Well, I have two if these:

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=14859

They may not be the original ones but they do have the raised lettering and the very robust split hook that is 10 times easier to use than any of the other straps I have ever used. If it isn't the original it sure is a great copy. Plus it's $3.50 instead of $17.00 (assuming you throw it in with something else you are already ordering and don't add to the shipping).
