Only FBL controller i've seen that sells used for damn near the same price as new...*nuff said*
the obvious question is why are there so many owners of the 720 selling them ?...*nuff said*

maybe you should go back to name calling as you really suck when it comes to actually talking about the thing at hand, the 720......

If you put him on your ignore list, it will hide his comments. Then if nobody feeds the troll, it will make for quicker reading.

I think that the very slow firmware updates hurts sales. You hear about features (GPS) but itís 3 or 4 years before it happens. Skookum really needs to make more of an effort.

i'd just like to say one thing about the claims that i'm some huge "skookum basher", i started a "user group" at willy freak that's still going strong with 51 members and counting called "The Skookum FBL Heli Freaks" and i think that also says something about the claims that "You offended quite a few guys there", and if i'm not mistaken Luvmyhelis is a member, oh and Rick is a member as well are you not ?

And i'd also like to say that Art Skookum is one of the nicest and most helpful individuals i have EVER had the pleaser of dealing with sense i've been interested in R/C helis and on a few occasion he has also allowed me to do a little beta testing myself which i thank him for very much, there is not one bad thing i can say about Art and i wish him well dispite what some people around here might think or have you believe !




steps down off the soapbox and backs away slowly...........

The SK 540 apparently took most of their attention over the past few months. Being a very small firm, it is understandable.

I see the SK 540 will also support quad copters and it has limited logging capability.

Multi-rotor choppers have definitely become very popular. I think that this will be the year when they pass Coaxial as the choice for beginners. Quads fly so much better than coaxial especially if there is any wind.
