This has the advantage of releasing the battery in a hard landing (crash), minimizing damage.

I flew the first flights with dry cells in the transmitter, but later changed to rechargeable NiCads that can be purchased complete with a simple wall charger from many sources. This will save money over time.

The notched "airplane" ratchet made precise setting of throttle and pitch difficult. This is critical in heli control.

By slipping a short length of silicone glow fuel line over the ratchet, it now feels like my other heli radios. I look forward to Horizon changing this ratchet in future shipments.
