Exactly. You have to be careful. Many shops are taking orders for the 4pk without pointing out that it could still be a couple of months away. I reckon to be safe, lets say August.

I wonder how RC radio's differ from delays of other products like video games?

Sorry dude, but i didn't catch your question But if i understand perfectly, you asking how much is the difference between a RC radio and something like a video game, of coming out to the market? Just the same thing.

I was making a statement that I hope that if there is a delay in releasing Futaba's new 4PK that its not as long as delays in PC games. PC games can be delayed by a year sometimes, hope thats not the case with RC radio's.

Oh, ok. Well, i don't think that they will do such a thing since the video games are MORE popular than our RC radios, don't you think? The PS3 delay 1,5 - 2 years i think, right? Xbox stolen all the gamers in that delay period. Anyway, back to our topic. I search Amain and Tower, and see that the 4PK it will be available on July or late June. It's not a console war here.
