How can they fire marketing when they spend more money on that than r&d and manufacturing combined?

I forgot, I hope this has a built in clock so you don't have to get your phone out if you don't have a watch on you...

We'll just have to wait and see. I guess with a clock your wife could program a return to home alarm for you.

I guess that would work. I don't have a wife, yet, so I was thinking more about...what time lunch would be, well at least for me. You got to eat even when you're having too much fun.

Hi,any news of anybody selling such an adapter? Flytron used to carry it but it's out of stock since long.

Thanks,

Try an email, they usually have unpopulated boards stocks
Can be DIY from an universal board with 1/10 pads. I can give you the PCB layout, not an Eagle, just dimensions.

I've learn to really like it and at least it looks good to me, and as long as I can put my name in the software that would be really good too. I guess I just like the classic black with lighter accents myself, but the silver at least won't show the dust/dirt as much as the black does. Which reminds me, I need to clean it. Well, it's very hard to clean these crevices. I'm trying it right now, at least this camera brush/blower kind of works on them. Cool, it looks brand new again.
Why would anyone want a dark colored transmitter? To me, we mostly fly in warm weather. Why cause the Tx to get hot from being out in the sun?

too many colors I think makes it look even more like a toy.....

what they should do is make it out of a plastic or whatever that will allow for enamel or laquer or some form of paint to stick. Let the owner do a custom paint job if they wish......

Very cool.

Making it one color will keep costs down and allowing the owner to custom paint will satisfy those who need something different. Plus, if things start getting a little banged up, you can give it a fresh coat and make it look like new!!!

Win - Win in my book.
