Default Multiplex MovieStar: Not in the US

The following is an e-mail I received from someone at hitecrcd (US distributor for Multiplex)
Those who want one are going to have to pay the $50 to $60 that retailers in the UK want for shipping.

Sorry Ken,

I don't expect to have the Movie Star available in the USA any time in
the foreseeable future.

Is the Multiplex Moviestar still being made. NONE of the retailers
listed on the web page (http://www.multiplexusa.com/WTB_files/wtb.htm)
carry the Moviestar. It is not a question of being out of stock, it
doesn't exist (as far as those retailers are concerned). I have found it
at a British retailer (http://www.modelspot.com/mpx/movie.htm), but I
really don't want to pay $55 for shipping! If it will be available in
the US again, when?

Any luck on the MovieStar? I fell into the same situation. Did you go with something else?
Thanks!

I had been doing some research out of curiosity. I don't know a lot about the Wingo (which was suggested above as a substitute for the movie star), but there are several uses of the Movie Star you can find on the web where it carrying a lot of payload. There is even a guy in Northern Europe who has GPS and an FMA co-pilot on his.
I am still getting good with my first glow powered airplane. I would like to develop a better video platform, but that is a ways down the road for me. If you really have to have a Movie Star there are a couple vendors in the UK that sell it. However, they will charge $40- $50 in shipping.

Ive seen the sites of those that use the MovieStar. That's what got me looking for one. I have an email in to Multiplex. We'll see what they say. I'd like to have a .60+ size of something like the MovieStar so I could carry an actual MiniDV camera and/or outfit it with my 5 megapixel Sony still camera.

Thanks!
