Left: Hitec/RCD Focus 4 FM 4 Channel- New, never used. With box, nicads, charger, manual, warr card and CH43 Xtal - $65 SHIPPED.

Right: Hitec/RCD Flash 4X FM 4 Channel Computer - Used one season, checked out by Hitec authorized tech last fall. Used a couple times this year, including yesterday Works perfectly. With box, manual, nicads, charger and CH36 Xtal. - $85 SHIPPED.

I'll guarantee both to be in perfect working order or I'll return all of your payment.

One more..

I also have an older CIRRUS RC-7F FM 7CH with dual rates, ail-rud and thr-flap mixing, servo reversing all channels, nicd. No manual, and as-is. I dont know anything about this Tx, except that the fellow I bought it from said it worked last time he used it and I believe him. I simply havent tested or used it since I got it from him. AS-IS $30 shipped.

Let me know if you want any of them. Anyone else id welcome to purchase these too, but THOR4944 gets 1st dibs.

Thx,
Scott

Please tell me what model of receiver you are using. If it is on a different channel than the transmitter, you will just need to buy a new crystal for your receiver.

Also, the Focus 4 FM transmitter does not have elevon mixing. If you want to use this transmitter, you will have to buy a 'v-tail mixer' which will plug into the receiver's elevator AND aileron connectors, then you plug both of your elevon servos into it. This is available from Wattage and other manufacturers for about $20.

The Flash 4X, however, does not require this v-tail mixer as it has this feature built in to the radio. I would suggest the Flash 4X if you require elevon mixing since it would end up costing about the same as the Focus 4 and a seperate mixer.

I am in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA. Where are you? If you are out of the country, we'll have to make sure that your receiver is made to operate on 72Mhz FM and possibly split the shipping costs.

Thanks!
Scott
