Why is the Spektrum Fut module so much cheaper than the JR module?
Went on spektrum's distributors page (hh) and noticed that the module and rec for the fut 9c is $ 130 cheaper than the jr module setup. Is there a considerable difference in the modules, or is this hh's way to lure futaba owners to spektrum, instead of going native? just my .02.

Methinks you have answered your own question with option b !!

There will be little difference between the Futaba Module and JR Module (ie chances are that they are both the RF sections). Layout may change slightly but technically identical otherwise it wouldn't work with current existing receivers.

Up until a little over a week ago they were the same price.

More likely the retailers are stuck with them, as Futaba users are more likely to buy the Futaba solution if they want to retrofit a Futaba radio.

I know we have a large stockpile that will never sell at our LHS. Only way out is to dump them on price.
