    Where are you USA guys getting the T8J from in the USA.

    Did a search online and did not find many places.

    I found one on Amazon. For some reason they seem to be in short supply - and the Amazon site where I ordered mine is now saying out of stock. Paid $280 free shipping.

    Heli-World. I believe Aerial Media Pro's . I think it's probably one of the more popular radios, you should not have
    any problem locating one at a local hobby shop.

    It's not a deal breaker, but hope you also might want to make sure to get the T8J-Heli model if you like having a 3-day switch on the left and right sides of the Tx.

    for those on the west coast who might stumble on this thread,. heres where I got mine.
    ..think most hobby shops carry Futaba's.

    Gizmo3000 brings up a good point. While both the T8J-A, and T8J-H have exactly the same functions, the default settings
    are slightly different.
    The T8J-A defaults to airplane mode, when started, and has the 3-way switches on the right side of the radio.
    The T8J-H defaults to helicopter mode, and has the 3-way switches on the left side of the radio.
    Gizmo3000 has the T8J-H, and has obviously modified it further with a "3-day switch" :lol:
