How about pictures of some old radio (20 years old or more)?
There are thread for vintage aeroplanes, cars, but there isn't any thread for old radio system.
How about the 7 wires servo, 5 wires, 4 wires for those who remember.
How about picture of old servo with , not an IC, but ordinary transistors & resistors packed on a tiny board.
How about picture of receiver with bundle of wires sticking out (extra weight to carry around even though no servo connect to it).
How about picture of receiver that uses metal case in stead of plastic.
How about transmitter that uses metal case.
How about radio that use vaccum tube.
How about radio system that uses 2 of the 4 cells for driving the servo to one direction, and uses the remaining two cells to drive the servo in the reverse direction?
I guess a lot of you out there have some sort of collection. Show it here for the rest of us to enjoy, to learn the history of RC!

I have Nearly all of those except for the valve receiver, I have a plan of one you can build though. Will post pictures as soon as I can, next couple of days.
This is making me feel old.

It is amazing the stuff we had to put up with.
I remember a single channel plane I had.
We used to fly the thing like a fighter sometimes coming so close to the ground the wing vortex caused the dust to rise.
Then opposite rudder and it would climb vertical almost to a loop. Hit the button again and it would level off then continue to climb until the fuel ran out.
Watching your decent wind direction air speed line up on the runway for a perfect landing approximately where you want it.
What a time we had

Those Nostalgic Days
Too bad I don't have a single channel transmitter, receiver, escapement, and those multi channel reed radios any more. Those were nostalgic days and I enjoyed more in those days, building radios myself.
I started RC flying in 1960s. My first radio was Citizenship single channel, then Kraft single channel. My first single channel plane, I still remember, was Mini Mambo, a kit made by Sterling. Has anyone flew this plane?
John Zaic, a younger brother of the famous model plane designer, taught me how to build and fly, in New York. I wonder John is still alive.
Here are old radios I still have.
