Buying Futaba Fasst Receivers O.S

I`m finding it hard to get some receivers at short notice as there sold out mostly so been checking O.S Prices. Has anyone got a good place to Buy from ? HobbyCity are all out....

Also, Are ALL 2.4 Fasst systems compatible ? I have the new 10CAG 2.4 Rig.
I know they RX may not have the C tick but I just need a few to doing some park flying untill the distributor has more stock.

Cheers
BW

www.fxheli.com are supposed to be getting a huge futaba shipment in "very soon " .. they are here on the Gold Coast ..

Rx's don't need a c-tick anyway ; stuff made for Japan is not compatible with Aussie requirements , USA stuff definitely is OK ....

You are thinking of spektrum. In japan spektrum uses DSMJ which is similar to the protocol futaba uses, ie FHSS.

After you buy something from Tower for the 1st time, they will send you a discount code for international customers practically every month.

The discounts are not trivial either. $125 off purchases of $500 or more and $250 off $1000.

With these discounts i have been able to purchase some high value items like engines and radio gear, have them sent air freight delivered in 3 days and still be several hundred $$ cheaper than the local shops.


Any FASST receiver bought from Tower will work here in Oz.
