Along with some more recent purchases for myself was a new Futaba 8FG. I've only ever boughten three "new" radios. First was an Attack 4 channel AM with micro servos in 1985. Second was a T6XA PCM 6 channel computer in 1997. Now third is the awesome 2.4 8FG. It's certainly a radio I can grow in the hobby with. Fly Futaba!
The other purchase was a well used Taboo DLG. I got a good deal and it flys great. DLG is lots of fun. It takes decent skill to launch and ride the lifting air.
