These Guys will probably try and talk you into a DX8. I hear it's a fine TX if you have the buck-a-roos.

What kind of shop do you have Bama?
I'll stick with the 6 for now. I'm gonna get RC poor real soon.

I manager a West Marine store. The Blue Angels are flying today so everybody is out on the water watching. It's really slow.

Looks nice. I think he wants a 4 channel that will bind with his DX6i. Right now, we share the Champ and he is still waiting for a Carbon Cub SS that he put down 50 bucks at a LHS. He's getting impatient and is now thinking a bit bigger...lol.

I turned him into RC glutenous monster. You should see his heli collection. Dang, I can't stop the guy. I know someone like this...lol

Bama, get some pics if you can. That is awesome!

I forgot to tell you. When you are pushing down on the wheel to make your selections. Push down at the "very" top of the wheel and "very" gently.

Okay guys. Here is something new to chew on for a bit. A significant advance in technology, the amphibious quad that lands and takes off from water. Check out the vid.

You should, Raz. It is about time you got serious about quads. You know you are itching to try FPV. You really, really want a set of Fat Shark goggles. You want to see beyond where you have ever seen before. The "force" is calling you, Raz. You feel its pull. You cannot resist. There are too many things you can only do with a quad. Nothing justifies buy a Go Pro like a quad. Think about the wonders of GPS, you'll never get lost. Quads are good Ryan. Listen to the "force". Come, Ryan...Come, Ryan... think of the "cool factor" that comes with Fat Shark goggles. Come, Ryan...

Ryan, you have no imagination. The money for your quad adventure is easy. You live in Canada where there is money to finance all sorts of silly and ridiculous things. Here's what you have to do. Put together a grant application where you will research the migratory habits of the Great Muskoka Spirit Muskox or the Southern Ontario red-feathered spotted buffalo sniffer. In order to follow either or both of these elusive beasts, you will need the right equipment which just happens to be a fully equipped. FPV quad that is waterproof. It has to be waterproof because these muskox and sniffers are powerful swimmers. You will have to follow these creatures across land and water so you will need full GPS capability. Since this is a fully electric aircraft, you will automatically meet all of the environmental regulations. I am sure that many here will attest to your suitability to go traveling off into the wilderness with a quad to track a muskox or red-feathered spotted buffalo sniffer. The red-feathered spotted buffalo sniffer is rumored to have the ability to mate 40 times a year using 27 different rituals. If you work it the right way, you could even wrangle an interview with David Suzuki. See? All it takes is a little imagination. Come, Ryan... Trust us, this is good for you. Come, Ryan... Follow the "force"...This will not hurt... Trust us...

You can figure on $400.00 for the Naza flight controller with GPS. There is also the cost of a receiver.

What's all this talk about Ryan's rod? Did you get a rod? I hear they only go up, forward and back a few times and then down.
