NEW FM RECEIVER - HiTec HFS-04MG - 4 Channel

Cause I was pissed I can't buy an FMA Extreme 5 any more - FMA has
discontinued them so they can make better profit margin on the new M5, I
started looking around for alternatives and found the HFS-04MG at
HobbyHorse, (my new favorite RC supplier).

It's single conversion, BUT, it has over a mile range and seems to be a well
designed product. Perfect for my cheap electric gliders under 2 meters that
don't deserve an $80 receiver setup.. and I can fly them high and not worry
about range at least (probably not interferance either).

Anyway, it's about $40 with the crystal at hobbyhorse. Sure will be nice to
be able to build a plane for UNDER $150 AND fly it as high as I like! Check
it out, looks good.

Cheers,
jeff-

I guess I won't buy a Chevy since they don't make a 57 anymore. :-)

I never met a 55, 56, 57, 61, 62, 63 or 64 Chevy that I did not like.

I agree with Yogi about FMA. I would quit buying Chevy if they quit
making mid range cars and only sold Excursions. Actually, I quit buying FMA
when they quit selling the Fortress on 50 mhz. Yeah I can buy the Quantum 6
instead at twice the price of the Fortress or I can go elsewhere such as
Berg and get a good rx on 50mhz for what I used to buy the Fortress for
pricewise.

So you are the owner of the 'screaming yellow POS' <G>.

I had to put my sunglasses on just to walk by.
