Flarm is sold to the US Dealers in USD $ not EURO so I doubt it.

Prices going DOWN!!!
What planet do you live on.
Go to France to buy one.
Price will be lower based upon the exchange rate but you will then pay 20% VAT.
Yes, you can claim a refund on the VAT but in
five years of making claims, I have never received a check
from the French.
I raise a glass for the dream of lower prices.

That's easily fixed. Sell it in Euro.

Even if they don't do that, the wages of the people who Flarm sales
support (70% of costs?) are going down in USD so the prices should drop.

I guess Richard would be happy to pay last year's price for his gas too.

I did not say I was happy about the pricing in US $. I would rather pay in EUROS but Flarm does not do that. Their pricing to US dealers is set in US $.

The good news is right now is the perfect time to get in on the Nephi group buy for PowerFlarms. Just let Craggy Aero know you want to join in on the fun and you'll save some $$.

Richard, I live in a country where almost everything is imported. The
habits of importers and agents are no news to us. Saying Flarm price
their product in USD is simply a red herring. They can change their
prices and policies whenever they like. If the USD had moved in the
opposite direction you would already have the new price list... "Sorry
to announce... economic pressures..." etc.

When in a hole, Richard, stop digging. Admit their behaviour is
miserly, apologise, and move on.

I also live in a country where most of the excellent soaring products are imported.

So why are you not talking to Flarm? The company in control of the pricing.

Actually I am in a thermal and climbing.

Where is FLARM located?
What is the country's currency?
In what currency are the prices of parts and production paid?
Discuss amongst yourselves...

I thought the Flarm was built in Switzerland. If they are using Euros there, its news to me (and them). The Swiss Franc is down only about 10% against the dollar since it's peak in early 2014, and near its average for the last several years (during which, I think the price of Flarm has remained steady?).
