Best online source for a new Futaba 9c

I've decided to upgrade radios, and would like to know where I might find one online. I really like the features of the 9c! Any recommendations are appreciated!

It's a Futaba thing AFAIK, I'm not an Electrical Engineer, so I don't know the technical end of it. I know the frequencies are split into two groups, not sure why, tighter tuning???? If you get a synth module(HIGHLY recommended!!!!), it won't matter anyway, if you plan on using any Rx other than Futaba. If you primarily fly sailplanes you might consider a Heli vesion due to no ratchet on throttle stick, and better switch positioning for landing mode. You might post on Yahoo Futaba Radios Group also, lots of knowledge there. Chris

Yes, it's really important to buy the best version for you for sailplanes as as well as the ratchet thing some of the switch positions are fixed. For example the 3 position switch for start off (flaps) speed (reflex) can be on the LH or RH side and are fixed there. Most sailplaners (I think) prefer it on the LHS. My 9CP puts it on the left, CAP on the RHS, so check with the supplier, he might understand the question! It's a great Tx!!
