Actually it's not that bad. I'm thinking a Futaba radio and a nice big EPP flying wing, of course

Still loving the 6J's look and features... and not going to spend more than $200 on a radio.

Nope I've got an offer for the entire thing! $470 now... $100 from YouTube later, and $50 for my birthday. Sounds good! I'll save up some of it for later too.

You NEED to get spektrum Dan... I'm sorry.. Not just because I love spekky. But you can get 6 6channel orangeRXes for the price of one futaba 6ch RX... Get a DX6i. And with the amount of stuff you have, (and your love of simplicity) you should get spekky just for the lower cost and ease of readily availed supply of orangeRXes...


Oh and I regret the post about not liking scale... I have just been bitten by the warbird bug... Dang that P51 flies is amazing with it's size...

Spent a morning practicing landings with my radian. By the end I was able to consistently get it landing a few feet away from me, no matter the wind conditions. Also did a bit of flying with the slow stick before it got too windy.

My suggestion is to get a radio with FrSky. Telemetry is something you can't live without once you get it.

The extra $50 for a DX7s would get me a Futaba 6J and two or three extra receivers.

I love spektrum because I love all the HH stuff, and it's spektrum based.
