Can't help

Sorry, I live in New York state, 3000 miles away from California. And so far I have used only the junky little radios that come with the RTF micro choppers. There is probably some good comparison of transmitters elsewhere on this site, along with which brands of helicopter they work with.

The F47 is still a good practice model if you want to do simple pirouette turns and landings. (By pirouette I mean just swing the tail around quickly.) It's good for practicing landings because you're not really travelling or turning during a landing. And with the longer blades it seems more steady in the air. I think the only thing it does badly is gradual turns where you want the model to keep moving forward throughout a longer turn. It doesn't want to let you do those turns because it shuts off the forward and side controls when you use the rudder control.
