What makes it even better is it was only £7.50 from China with free p&p.
It works very well and is very fast to correct any change in attitude.
I have them on my 3D Delta and my Lil Ripper and they help me a lot.
I use channel 5(gear) on my old futaba to switch the box on or off.

Quiet maybe, but not forgotten. As a matter of fact, I've been laying out a new Dart for aerial photography and FPV. Like jclassic1, I chose a flat, stepped wing with ailerons for this one. I borrowed some ideas from my fav Bonanza Dart (pic, plans), including an asymmetrical wing with reduced LE sweep, and a V-tail. All mounted on a 10mm stick fuselage and using RadicalRC Slow Stick hop-up parts.

Just waiting on some servos, and a little breather from work, to build it. I'll post back after it's been tested and the plans are tweaked with any adjustments.

I hope you can find time to be a regular poster on here soon as I miss your postings.
And yes we do seem to share a common interest in the planes we like to build and fly.

All the best
