That's why I won't have any control glitches with my trusty DX5e!

It probably goes a little faster than my PopWing... I've heard like 75 MPH from it? PopWing was going 55 I believe... not sure.

See, now if I like that then I can invest in a good radio with expo and dual rates. If it's OK then I'll stick with my DX5e for my basic flying needs

Thats awesome. My funjet is done. All i need is to fly it

Just ordered it. I got it for 185.00 on amazon that's not a whole lot of money off, but it is still cheaper than 200!

And I meant 6.5 not 6.

I still think you guys are crazy to spend that much on a simulator... a small foamy could make up for all the skills you can learn on it

but how many real turbine jets could you fly and crash for $200. the way i see it simulators are alright flying planes that rebuild them selves.

At the LHS, they have RF6 set up, and it shows how much money has been saved from all the crashes. It says like 5 million or something LOL

Yeah, I agree. But the neat tihng about the sim is that it gives one the courage to do stuff that we wouldn't DARE to do in real life.
