That alone kills it for most people these days, unless your just into planes....
Evidently, you missed my point. I never suggested that anyone should use an 80s tx today. I mentioned my vintage FP-7FG/E simply to illustrate that quality transmitters usually last for decades, and that module-based rigs are, for the most part, future-proof.
My 20-year-old Futaba 8UAF will fly a CPPM bird, and it has many features that have only recently began to show up on the flagship
radios of Spektrum & some of the others - even though it was Futaba's entry-level
programmable tx back then. Plus, it's module-based, so it is also future-proof.
