Sorry to see that Steve! Especially on such a nice plane like the 89!

Touch wood (or knock on wood for people in the US ), I haven't had a problem with Castle. With that being said, I'm very tempted to try Kontronik Whilst they cost double or even triple of the equivalent Castle, they look really well made and people over at HeliFreak really like them As for BECs, I'm really liking Western Robotics. Got a Mini Hercules G2 on my Slick 59; works very well and the build quality is great! Unfortunately - like with Kontronik - they're about three times the price of the equivalent Castle. However, HeliFreak say they're very good (on a BEC recommendation thread, basically everyone said Western Robotics is the best ).

I'm gonna order a Kontronik and test it on my 42 Slick The thing I must have is good sharp throttle response, something Castle's are known to be great for. I will also get the ProgDisc to program it in If it is as sharp as a Castle, I'll move all my stuff over to Kontronik!
