Default replacement transmitters for Futaba Attack 2DR

I race a Des Townson Electron yacht which is really only known in New Zealand. We have been using Futaba Attack 2DR transmitters for the past 20 years but we now need to get a suitable replacement for them. We want a 2.4GHz as we have continual problems allocating frequencies.
We have recently bought some FlySky FS-T2A which work perfectly for us but my supplier in China says they are no longer made. Does anyone know of an equivalent?
Our yachts are all built to an exact pattern so they are all identical. Hence we need a transmitter which matches the Futaba as closely as possible.

Any comments would be most appreciated

Sugggest you look at Flysky i6. I have been using this for over a year now for both sailing and airplanes. It is a 6 channel computer 2.4 radio which is an over kill for your 2 channel boats but is very reasonably price at about $50 US. Try banggood.com

Any 2G4 set that does not have "park flyer" in the description will do the job.
Since there is very little cross compatibility between makes and models in the 2G4 world, there is the minefield of quality, assumed future availability, cost of receivers if more than one is needed. I've currently got a few boats running on Saturns, but these are becoming rare and the receiver price is rising, and some on a Radiolink, T4EU which was cheap and cheerful and seems to work very well with extra receivers available at a fairly sensible price.

An advantage of the I6S is the receiver battery voltage is transmitted back tot he transmitter so you always know how your receiver is doing. And it is sold by various names, i.e. Hobby King has a version and it comes with 2 receivers.
