Ah..er....I'm going to have to ask the judges on this one.

While they are working, another hint. This time, a fully assembled view.

Excellent! Two birds with one stone . I bought a couples of years ago a thread milled wooden kit on the internet for my transmitter. I just love the feeling and looks of wood.

Cheers,
Andrés

Nice Andres. Yours is the "Designers" Tx tray. I had seen trays with the side platforms but thought that there might be an access problem to the side flap slider controls, so I tried the minimalistic open approach. Mine is decidedly utilitarian looking, but maybe the candy stash box will make up for it.

Miniphase.....well some thing good. Besides the admiration of all, I tell you what, I'll set you up on a date with a blonde hiker babe I know in the UK.

I have one of these console Tx which are very common in Germany ("Pultsender"). It has everything on top, so there is no collision with the tray.

Is the candy in the picture for Miniphase?

Kent, now I get it. The second picture shows the true reason for the candy box near to your Tx !

I thought you only needed a fetchermite for free flight models!

With this new fangled RC you are supposed to fly the model back to your feet - or am I missing something?
