Looks like the page has turned on the older technology
I think a lot of planes and radio equipment have been made obsolete with the introduction of the AR6400 tech and the Sukhoi airframe. I have to say that after flying the Sukhoi the last few days, It has spoiled me! Now I changed the props on mine and one of the benefits in doing that is TAXI capability is greatly enhanced which is an Important aspect to me as I like to ROG and Land as well as fly.
Finally, affordable flying micro tech is at the 4 channel forefront
A lot of other older planes featured here at micro RTF have been relegated back to toy status as far as I'm concerned. I know my plane bone-yard will get some new stock and even some projects in progress may wind up there.
