Unfortunately, they don't seem to offer any 50 mHz equipment (though they certainly seem to cover the non-US bands well.) And don't forget to add a crystal for about $7. Still, good prices.
As far as I know, there are no mini/micro ham band receivers available for under $89. The cheapest I'm aware of are :
FMA M5 for $89.95 at FMA. Add $12.95 for a crystal. $89 at radicalrc.com. Includes crystal.
FMA Quantum 6 or 8 for $89.95 at FMA. Add $12.95 for crystal
Berg 6dsp GIII for $79.99 at RC Direct. Add $9.99 for a crystal.
Sombra Labs Shadow 1 receiver (does 50, 72, 75 mHz all in the same unit. Synthesized.) List price was about $89 with the programmer, but I don't think it's available any more, but might be again in the future.
In fact, those are the only micro receivers that I'm aware of that are available on the 50 mHz band at all. Are there _any_ others?
JR and Futaba both make 50 mHz band receivers, but none of it seems to be smaller than one ounce. Hitec, I don't think they make any. Anybody else?
