have you tried to put servos in them? rumor has it they fit the 1.25mm connectors from HK. like the hk5320 or hk282. i dont know. i hear these are tactic bricks. i want one, but if its only 3 ch...ugh. i had the same idea. im on the fence, either the 3ch mini vapor, or the nieuport 17.
some one must know!
edit: seems this thread says you can put ailerons in the albattross
right now towerhobbies seems to have the albatros for sale 39.99 with free anylink, and i got quoted 10 shipping. so a new plane shipped to me with anylink (got my turnigy 9x with open9x running!) for 58 with taxes y todo.
not bad. i will see if the local hobby shop can do something similar.
