I have had it with prices in european local hobby shops.
***heli deliverd me a futaba 9c in a european freq band, at about 55% of
the local price (including paying the import taxes and shipping), in about
half the time the LHS indicates as lead time (including customs handling).
*** even includes the correct charger for euro 220V~ mains.
LHS shop can only supply the robbe/futaba and that one comes as kit only
with servo's but without batt. packs.
Next time I crash I might buy spares online as well.
