Are these the versions without the Spectra? Can you tell us when the Spectra versions will be shipping?

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:
