Probably because it has a plug, and the Champ Brick doesn't.

Not the set that you can switch on and off from your transmitter.

I installed a camera inside my Champ. Details in this post, in the big Champ thread.

It is a promising start but there are still some bugs to chase down.

Hey LittleBird - where did you find your paint to match the plane (struts)? Did you have to blend your own color, or did you find a good match? Thanks!

I bet canopy glue would work like a charm... The only drawback is a 24 hour cure time. But, IMHO, well worth the wait.

I had successful ROW with stock Champ. ROW is much easier with Champ than J-3 CUB. I blew up my float design for J-3 Cub by 10%. Will post video later.
