Wasn't ripping noone? I was clarifying to assist others (newbs) that read these threads that doesn't know our abbreviated jargon.
And "explaining" that RC(Remote Control) to which are both RF(Radio Frequency) and IR(Infra-Red).
Hope that cleared up any misunderstanding anyone might have had?

As for topic, that is the whole reason for this thread. Air Hogs "is" ripping new ones on the prices for some of these "toys". Thats why I and others are welcome to post competitors similar products that are more affordable.

While your on this site, check out the reviews on it. 8 out of 10 shown were more than satisfied with it. Very good percentage rating IMO.
I'm in Canada, and I checked on the .Ca site, and it said that it should be available, but I went to TRU to buy another original reflex, it wasn't there and they said that they don't sell them anymore because no one buys them. I came back really angry.

That really stinks. Maybe check .Ca ebay ? I've seen quite a few places sell out of them, but they're restocking them here.

Personally I haven't seen one around anywhere. Hoping when they do make their way through, that they'll be cheaper than $60 USD.

Yes, but it's more expensive from them. I hope I find a good deal somewhere.

True, I wonder how much would it be to buy one from the states, + tax & shipping to canada? Looking around probably $80~$90 USD, dunno what it would equal out to be in your currency.
Maybe something worth while in checking into.
