Help!
anyone wanna give an old system to help out a newbie?

I need a transmitter and a receiver for a mini flying wing im building.
The receiver needs to be able to control two motors independently with variable speeds for each motor(to turn and if both are equal to lift and land)
The motors are gonna be pager motors most likely or mayb j250's if not too heavy. Also, the reciever needs to be light because of the small size.
I don't have any money right now, i got to get a job to pay my mom $240 for summer school .
please i would greatly appreciate it and i could possible sum up some money later this summer after i pay my mom back.

How about stepping back, leave your planes alone, concentrate on summer school, get your grades up and have a successful year so that next time grades are assigned, you won't go to summer school, have a job to have money for yourself and not school and THEN buy something.

You have to have priorities in life.

I'm sure with all those specifications, you will need a computer radio, and given your dire situation, you would probably just rather have the cash to go and buy it yourself.

What's your paypal address? (and your real name)

Tell him Dave. I never had the temerity to ask for stuff like this when I was his age, unless it was christmas time. Figure out a way to make $500 and pay your mom off AND buy your radio equipment. What's minimum wage these days $7???

Kudos to mom for making you pay. You'll have plenty of $$ to buy toys when you're a grownup and have a good job. I had to do summer school once. Lots of pretty girls in summer attire. Enjoy!

I'm doing a full load of summer classes, paying for it myself ($1500), and working so I can pay my own bills (I don't live at home). Somehow, I still manage to scrape up enough here and there to support my RC habit and if I can't afford it, I just work some extra hours!

By the way, if anyone is handing out RC stuff, I could really use a Tantrum, you can get it here www.mountainmodels.com

My assumption here is that the answer is "no".

Point made, thread closed.
