Default Kudos to John G at Hobby Services

I have a Futaba 10C radio that did not have a user manual with it and was assured by people that should know that they were impossible to come by. I never for a moment believed that. To think that Futaba had exactly the same number of manuals printed as they had radios produced was preposterous. They made 1,000,000 radios and 1,000,000 manuals? Come on. I always believed that it was simply a matter of contacting someone who wanted to get off his butt and look. John G at Hobby Services is that man and I want to publicly acknowledge him. I contacted Hobby Services to ask about a window on the back of a 7C radio that covered the bind lights and in the same email mentioned that I could also use a manual for a 10C. John G replied with the part number for the window and said if he could locate a manual, he would include it also. That means he was willing to get off his butt and look or at least assign the task of looking to someone else. The point is that he cared enough for Futaba customers to make it happen. Thank you John G and Hobby Services.

We'll let John know of your appreciation for his effort.

You can also download the manuals from here: http://www.futaba-rc.com/downloads/manuals.html

Thanks, guys. I should have said upfront that I realize the manual can be downloaded. In fact, a fellow flier who assumed I didn't know that, did it for me and printed it. But I wanted a factory, bound manual that I could put in the original box with the radio in case it ever needs to move on. Many thanks to everyone involved.
