This question is for Mike Greenshields
Tower Hobbies is selling the Futaba R2106GF 6-Channel 2.4GHz FHSS Micro Receiver for $35. Others are selling them for even lower at $30. At these prices, there is no need to buy clones from China.
The Airtronics 92664 RX-60 2.4GHz FHSS 6-Channel Park Flyer Short Range Mini Receiver is in same class as Futaba.
Considering Futaba has a larger market share, is Airtronics going to be lower the price of 92664 RX-60 to stay competitive ?
For my kids, I am considering purchasing two entry level Computer Radio's with price of extra receivers as a strong deciding factor. As the 2.4GHz conversion market dries up, the Chinese manufactures will eventually make more and more clone receivers. It's matter of time. The Chinese manufactures are making decent quality Futaba clones Rx for fraction of the cost which are perfect of indoor and slow flyers. This is probably the main reason to come out with lower price FHSS system with $30 Rx.
