As I organize my shop I found additional inventory - so I am marking it down - if you are a previous customer and want to order more and you supported this product in its initial release - please identify yourself in a PM with your order # - I have a special bonus for you.

FYI - orders are coming in now in 5,8,10 kits per order, so if you are on the fence - I could run out of inventory before the spring. On top of the +40% discount, I am throwing in additional free kits.

Those webb antennas had a noticeable difference in RSSI on the 2 or 3 G-RX6's that I've outfitted them on. The only reason I haven't bought any in this sale yet is that I'm very very keen and hopeful on the TBS Tracer system...

Can't or not supported / invested in because it no longer meets the Frsky need - no one really knows. IMHO Frsky is seriously shooting themselves in the foot in the way they are going about their attempt cornering market share. I know they put undue and morally reprehensible pressure on retailers to avoid selling competitive brands - in Canada that is illegal (likely in the USA too) but more so, its a gross way to treat retailers (like aloft hobbies) who were Frsky Champions.

Frsky is making all of the mistakes of early tech companies - instead of pulling ahead by innovation, they are trying to lock out competition technically but that target moves too fast and its like trying to hold back the tide due to how many people can take their technical roadblocks and dismantle them in minutes.

Thanks for a wet windy covid weekend, I am cleaning out my hanger and I think we have found a seriously incriminating supply of these little reminders of F3K fun...
