Yeah, the Tx nicads are optional, I think. Wonder how good the Rx is? Can you post a hyperlink to it? Best Regards

I've only read the ads, but it seems like you only have servo reversing on the rudder and elavator channels. What about throttle?!?! What if your speed control needs the channel reversed??? I don't think they had electric flight in mind.

My Hitec Focus III definitely does NOT have a reversable throttle channel. By the way, 3 channel single stick radios are nothing new. I had a Cox/Sanwa in 1983 or there abouts that was of that configuration. Throttle slide was on the front however. I seem to recall there were others on the market then also. Dave C.

I have a Cox/Sanwa from the late 80's which three reversing switches and the throttle is on the upper rear of the case. It is controlled with your left index finger.

The single stick transmitter does not have any mixing functions .
