Everyone in the 'room' that has messed up on this at least once show your broken plane parts....
I know folks that I'd deem pretty smart that I've personally seen do this a number of times.....
I admit to have done it myself and I do have 20 memory slots and they aren't all filled. My own memory, well that's a different story.
If everyone was that conscientious Spektrum would have never bothered with [Model Match].
If the OP wants to risk it, I say it's his plane. I'm clear on this-yes you can do it, I think it's a pain, and you almost for sure will screw it up sometime. If money is that tight you can't buy a HK RX (Spektrum/Futaba are a different story and that one is revealed by the proliferation of alternative cheap RX) maybe this sport is a bit rich for you.
