I just bought one nib last night I was wanting to give this unit a another try and then I come across a post that they are discontinued now.

So are they not going to sell them or support them anymore.

They are not discontinued - its just your USA importer who has no stock.
They are available everywhere else without any problem.
The "possible" new 760R all in one version will not appear until next year at the earliest, if it appears at all !

That would always be something that you would need to address when buying from outside of your own country.
My guess would be that Futaba USA would not touch it ?

If you were informed that it has been discontinued, then this can only be a Futaba USA decision.
Futaba just released their latest catalogue, vol 36, with the 750 still going strong into next year and as expected, no mention of the 760R.
I spoke with 2 suppliers in Japan this afternoon and they also have no local knowledge of it being discontinued either on their home or export markets.

Well "should" anyone want them, rest assured that they are still available from everywhere else in the world.
Futaba USA did exactly the same with some of the higher range receivers - even though all are still available from Futaba !
