Don't know your 2.4Ghz from your 35Mhz? Discuss radio equipment here.

Macs stopped selling radios when they could not furnish Rx's. I sold their last XG-14 to a guy who already had a load of Rx's.
The XG6 and XG11 are the only radios on stock as now, but the others will become available now there are Rx's again.

Yes, that's where all the stock is coming from.

Even Hobbyplastic (MacGregors own retail site) doesn't list one single receiver...

I have struggled to find many sites with them in stock! Ironically of only 1 place I have seen them they are the most expensive...

Found this on Macgregor website:

ANNOUNCEMENT - JR 35MHz & DSM2 TRANSMITTER SERVICING
Due to the unfortunate news that JR Propo closed at the end of 2016 we are no longer able to repair JR 35MHz or DSM2 transmitters.

For all JR 35MHz / DSM2 - 2.4GHz transmitters repairs, please contact Model Radio Workshop.

Contact: Mike Ridley

http://modelradioworkshop.co.uk/contact-details/

There's other stuff re sales of a couple of JR Txs on the site though---so what's the current state of affairs?
