The versions he listed are for Optic with Spectra and servos and Optic and Spectra alone - the Optic/Spectra/Supreme RX is not one of the two he listed. Details at ww.hitecrcd.com The non-Spectra ones are all over the place and have been for some time.

Well, Tower now has the Optic w/Spectra ETA of MID DEC from MID NOV...the rest like my back-order for the Optic w/Spectra and Supreme RX are still at MID NOV.

There's definitally a production shortage for the OPTICS...no questions about that!

It's not *just* the Optic, there is definitely a shortage of Hitec Tx's and packages with Tx's in the Canadian distribution stream. I can't even get an ETA for any of the models I was interested in.

Tower must have one hell of a backlog. I'll bet they got a load in this week that all went out to fill backorders.

Back log on the Optic 6 w/Spectra and Supreme RX goes back until July of this year. I got some info from Tower.

It's a shame the supply isn't here for Hitec during this prime season...oh well, I'll cancel before I leave on vacation.

Right Craig - I gave up on the Canuck distribution when they could not even give me an ETA

Try Global. Their website seems to imply they have them in stock:
