Where to get Super Nova other than FMA?

Does anyone know where online I can get a SuperNova 250S without paying list price (i.e., ordering from FMA Direct)? Usually dealers discount some amount from the MSRP. I also know I can get the cheaper identical Dymond unit but I've heard the instructions with the FMA unit is much much better and am willing to pay for it.

I tried all the my LHS and since they don't cater to e-flight at all, they all gave me funny looks when I asked for that charger. Thanks!

Check their ad in RCM for 800 number if you want to save money...I think they have one.

Also, expect to stay on hold for a while, as they are large and get lots of calls and only have about 5 folks there at any one time.

MK,

I got mine at www.hobbybarn.com for $119 plus shipping. Might be cheaper somewhere else now, but I doubt it. BTW FMA was selling them for $90 at the WRAM show, 3 weeks after I ordered mine.

Do a search on Yahoo or Google for "Supernova 250S price" Might get you to a site that's cheaper.

I got the one from Dymond. About $115.00 including shipping. True, the instructions are lacking, but it's not too dificult to figure out. They do give you a 'map' to the menus.

A great charger!

I highly recommend the Dymond RC Super Smart charger.

The charger is excellent and so is the service from the folks there. And it is cheaper than SuperNova.

I do feel your pain as I've waited over 2 months for mine.
