Well, we went to the Large Model Airshow at Elvington Airfield today and I came back with......

a brand new Spektrum DX8!!!!

I have had my eye on this transmitter since I bought my 450 pro but a lot of people have been talking scary things about this hence the delay.
Andy K has been helpful in restoring faith back and some threads on here have been encouraging so, it was on sale at the show today and I just could not say no.
I only have a 6100e receiver tho.. so not sure if that is enough for my 450pro or i should buy a new one.
firmware on mine is 2.01 so i think I will need to upgrade. Just looking now.

Well, I figured I'd put something new on here... I have stopped flying my HZSupercub LP for the time being as I'm trying to get back into helicopters again. I purchased a Trex 450 PRO about a month ago and have been flying that almost everyday.
I purchased some more batteries for it as the 2 batteries I have are 5 years old and just not good anymore.
When I tried the new batteries (Turnigy 2200 20c and 40c), wow! I could feel the difference! The heli had lots of power, it scared me a bit.
I think my photos are on Flickr and I will link here in a bit.
