2.4 Turnigy TX/RX systems & Other TX/RX systems as well

I have been browsing the Hobby King site for some time and I have registered as they have a few items that I would love to get as the weather gets nicer and such. My issue and I am hoping someone from the company monitors this section of the forum.

I have put two different TX/RX systems into my wish list with a request that when the items get into stock email me so I can order them. The first Tx/RX is the Turnigy 9channel system with the V2 firmware upgrade, and the other is the Hobby King 7 channel 5 model memory system. Of course these never seem to be in stock until today.

I receive and email saying the item is in stock so I log into the web site and low and behold it is no longer in stock I receive email this morning and less than an hour later they are gone again.

HOBBY KING PLEASE GET SOME STOCK!!!!! I really want to get a couple of the planes (J-3 cub 1400mm) and the 1100mm T-28 but those are also in a huge backorder out of stock situation.....WTH ???? STOCK STOCK STOCK....won't order a plane if I can't get a TX/RX system along with it as well...

I have had the same experience. I get an email saying they are in stock in USA warehouse but when I go there they are out.
The Turnigy radio looks like a good deal but they can't keep any in stock in the US. I think most of the stock gets diverted to the Asian market first and whatever is left over gets sent here.

I gave up trying and got a Spektrum DX7i off of ebay for 260 dollars with a 6 channel receiver and four servos. I'm really happy with it, it is easy to program and can do any kind of mix you could ever want. I know it cost more but it was better than waiting forever for a radio that may not get here.

They are also about to release the 9XR which is a revised version of the 9X, re-developed in house.

Just got an email saying they were in the US warehouse. I went to the HK site and they were already BO. It took me 30 seconds to get to the site. It seems like they are filling back orders with the ones they claim are in stock. Very frustrating situation. I think I'll wait for the newer version.

I wonder how long the BO will last. I put in one pretty quickly after they were showing in stock... At US warehouse... So hopefully we will be at the top of the queue.

That's great to hear hopefully they will have some form of a preview video or other announcement soon

One hopes it will happen sooner rather than later. Apparently it's going to be a complete revamp with all the good bits that most people are doing after getting the stock 9X.

And the $ will probably make a significant jump. I'd like to see a 40 plane memory.
