Futaba 7C 7-channel 2.4 Ghz

Has any one checked out these Radios?
-
Just wondering about the different radios available, especially in the 2.4 Ghz.
The Futaba 7C 7-channel 2.4 Ghz........ its not available in Australia yet.
From peoples experience , what sort of lead time do you think we would have until they come?
I see it is for sale for $319.99 US at Tower..... thats with four stnd servos.
I'm expecting it to sell $499 AUS...[ Dx7 is 339 Us x 1.56 = 529 AUS..].
Am I Dreamin ........ or what ?........is it a good radio?
Glenn.

Do you think if they ever bring it out here that the price will be astronomical
for first year?

On a different Tack...!!
Thinking about the Mobile phone concerns Regarding brain Tumours etc...
Are the 2.4 Ghz units going to be a Health issue.??
The antenna whilst not against the head is 2 feet away from the head and
outputting at a reasonable power [ I guess ].
Some people dont fly for very long at any time But thats not the case for
me. I fly for Hours
at a time - continous. Or very short breaks.

too much thinking...

your worried about your head and a 2.4ghz radio, but you probably still carry your mobile phone in your pocket... mere inches away from the family jewels....
