Your LHS could get them for you if he wanted to. They are still available. The distributors are glad to get rid of them.


Try this.

I'd be willing to bet that if you called them on the phone (the old way) and talked to a rep and offered them 1/2 price or maybe get a hold of 3 or 4 for the same price as one. Like skaliway said, they are happy to rid themselves of them. I usually use the bay for price reasons.

I spent 3 hours searching for the AM crystals last night, forgot to llook on the bay for some reason

There is no LHS here anymore, I quit searching for one a couple years ago;we would drive around 2-3 hours in every direction and found none.

What we DO have is a shop that is glad to sell me r/c car and heli fuel, a few pieces of balsa, monokote, or a boxed up electricRTF, he can`t get crystals through his distributors; and I know the guy personally, go figure what "friends' are for lol

Thanks guys
