Cloudy, high of 64, north wind at 13 but it's kinda gusty right now. I might not maiden the Sabre after all.

You get an advantage if you are using servos on a plane that can't hold the deflection - air over the surface pushes the surface back.

Speed, well, is speed - quicker responses to what you want to do.

Wayne, you had me busting a gut with that one-liner......so out of character for you...that's why I'm still chuckling over here! Thanks for that pick-me-up on a gloomy snowy October morning!

Waldo...... your hat entitles you to referee status........you know ......like at beach volleyball, water ballet, and stuff of that nature, but for heaven's sake.......NOT.....as a judge in a prestigious T_ _ _t ho-down! Oh, and by the way....you know that T40 of Jack211's.........the one you are now in possession of? I forgot to mention that poor ol Jack211 considered that plane cursed, cause he couldn't hover worth a damn! So don't let that little piece of information seep into your ego and destroy what little self-confidence you might have.

I am hoping there was a typo in this line someplace.

There is no advantage I know of to stalling a servo or getting "Blow Back" of a surface. Either of these events happening causes very high amp draw and can cause brown outs / shorten a servo life dramatically.

Speed and Centering is a high priority, at least to me. Its like 72Mhz verses 2.4. With 72 the transmission is slower so often you are "chasing" the control, doing things in advance to comp for the latency. The next step is to take that latency of of the servo so slight move happen more real time. Hovering is a good example of fast minor corrections. If you are always a half move behind the needed correction, the chase is on.

Fair Statement.... I seen Joe Smith fly a 72 at our FLI. Both Kyle and Joe are good enough to pull it off. Facts are Facts that the FM transmissions are dramtically slower.

Have you ever seen someone that points their transmitter antenna towards their feet always, hold a 72 and not be able to do so?

Yes, better technology allows for more precise control,, no doubt about it.

DOG....Wayne's statement is correct......he's saying there's an advantage in switching over to digitals if such and such is happening........no typo.

Anyone that thinks that they'll be able to use their 72 mgz gear in 10 years is fooling themselves. The powers that be have their sights set on selling that bandwidth to the highest bidder. We're stuck with 2.4 whether we like it or not. I'm pleased as punch with my Aurora 9 and for the money it's been a real value. I just don't like it when we're fed a bunch of malarkey about 72 being inferior.....personally I have never had a problem with 72mgz, while two radios I've tried that were 2.4 were glitchy.....probably due to the huge transmission tower that looms over our landscape! The A9 has been problem free as of yet.

Ah... I took it out of context.. My Bad! However, low torque digitals will still give out.

I think it will be hard to "BAN" 72 unless AMA clubs were to enforce it. I too was very sucessful with 22 FM for a few years, I still say most failures and glitches on them were from power related, like a servo stalling and such.
