When learning to fly the Sukhoi (which was the first time I had flown 4-channel), all I had was the cheap black DSM radio that came with the Ember. No expo! It had dual rates, though, which did help... I remember that first (very short) flight. I remember thinking to myself, "I've made a huge mistake." But I stuck at it. Burned through three motors and thought about trying a brushless conversion. I flew that thing a LOT before I got the Sbach and a DX6i.
