My first Transmitter is the Futaba 6 2.4 FASST (sold the Futaba 6 and now have the 7C) and my first aircraft was the Slow Stick Brushless and since then I have purchased 4 more Slow Sticks with many mods.

T-34 Mentor (wonderful flying aircraft) (May she REST in PEACE)
C-160 Transall (Maiden Flight 06/20/2010 at War Birds Over the Rockies)
Blade MSR 1ea
