    High Output 4CH?

    I see they may hit the shelves on 2/15 but I thought I would check to see if anyone has managed to get their hands on a 4CH High Output Transmitter yet?

    Where did you get the 2/15 date? I am about to buy a 3 channel radio (my new 2 channel link won't work for what I need), and would prefer one of these. I spoke to Traxxas yesterday, and the gentleman said he did not have an availability date?

    I just called a couple of resellers and I'm getting consistent answers from all of them.

    Just spoke to them, they are bumping to 2/15 as well. I was hoping I might be able to get in earlier since they listed 2/8 but looks like that's not the case

    Cool that you called them.

    Since they know its not going to be on 2/8 they should take that date off their website. Makes me believe they are trying to sucker people in to preorder by continuing to make a false claim. Makes it appear they will have it earlier than everyone else when that isn't true at all.

    As always, buyer beware.

    I did the same thing with another reseller, called and spoke to the owner and he actually updated the site well I was on the phone. A Main said they needed to but it didn't happen yet. Even then the 2/15 date was the distributor's receive date, it will stretch a few days for resellers like A Main.

    Cool.

    That means they will be available to the masses very soon... and for less than $125. I think I can wait a few more days.

    Did it sell quick and get deleted? I see an old 4 channel 2.4GHz set (model TRA2206) but do not see either the new transmitter or a set.
