Thumbs down Fly Zone "Air Core" being discontinued??

It seems The Fly Zone 'Air Core' line of electrics are being discontinued. Glad I'm stocked up on air frames power cores and spare parts.. Really a mistake to D/C this fine line of RTF 22" span electric powered war birds.

Spoke with one order taker at Tower and they said perhaps they will be improved and brought back. I should hope so as they are great performers,no question

I really like this product. I have all the airframes except the trainer. Bought almost all of them when Tower had them on sale for $20. Bought a couple zeros for the kids when they went down to $10. Only issue is I would like to get another power core and can't. I just checked and don't even see them on eBay. It's also hard when people jack the prices up 2 or 3x the price just to take advantage of them not being produced anymore. I'm not going to pay those prices. I'll be glad to pay a discontinued price but not regular or inflated price.

Wow! Really disappointed that they would discontinue this line of aircraft. I really hope that the information from the tower rep is accurate and they come out with a new im[proved line though I don't have a clue as to what they would improve, I love the way these fly!

A couple weeks ago I asked one of the guys at the LHS. He said they just weren't selling so they were discontinued. I have them all except for the trainer. I'm still on the lookout for a powercore. I can't find them anywhere now.
