Default Any plans for 2.4Ghz micro receiver?

Does Hitec have any plans for a small 3/4 ch 2.4Ghz receiver?I'm very happy with my Optima 7's Ihave but Icould definitely use something smaller in my RES sailplanes.

Thank you!

Yes, there are two micro 5 channel RX's (most planes use dual aileron servos so why build a 4ch?) in the works due later this year that will weight about 4-5grams. One will have the connectors on the top and the other with them on the side. Street price will be around $35.

I'm sure it's been discussed but I've read through about a dozen threads on here and rcgroups and haven't seen any mention of it, so I'll ask here. Obviously the micro 5s didn't make it out for 2010, but is there an estimated release date for them?

I already know about the Optima 6 LITE and the Minima 6 receivers as well as modifications that can be done to the Optima 6 and am considering all of the above, but the micro 5 channel for about 35 bucks still tops them all when it comes to something to stick in a foamy so I just gotta ask.

I could have sworn I specifically said I was already aware of the current lightweight options, hence my question about the upcoming lightweight options. You even quoted my post where I said I knew about them when you replied to tell me about them. [X(]

Or are A.T.'s replies automatic responses to any post about Hitec products in general?
