How did you get burned? Buying from RCG, or from a store?

I would probably go to National or Hobby Hangar. If there are problems with your new RX, you have a place to go for help.

I ordered two Spectrum 6100's from an online vendor. At one point I went to sell them thinking I wouldn't need them. (XPS!!!) Brought them into Hobby Hanger and they told me they were counterfiet. I can't say for sure which vendor I ordered from but everything I read seems to indicate they are fake ones.

Man, that sucks. That's another thing about Spektrum, too much counterfiet stuff out there right now.

That's why you buy from a reliable source, Support your local Hobby store.
We are fortunate that we have a few around.

Neck, I've got a "slightly used" Spektrum RX that came with the DX6i I won at Viper hobbie's first big raffle. It's got the little satellite deal, too. I'm not even sure what kind it is. I put it directly into the used f-35 that I got from pat. The RX has only seen, at most, a half-dozen flights, none of them ending catastrophically.

I'm selling it because I've since changed to Hitec for anything I treasure (anything expensive to replace), and still fly my cheap parkflyer types on synth 72mhz.

What's it worth to ya?

Yeah, my mistake. I looked it up, then forgot to post. It's an original AR6200 from a few years ago. It's been sitting in the F-35 for about 18 months in the garage.

I plan on installing this in my new Windrider Dauntless.

Trying to keep the costs down. Low cost plane.

I'll be ordering it in a couple of weeks.(Next payday) I just received all the parts for it. Gotta love Heads up. I think I went a little far with the metal gear servos. Oh well.

I'm doing the open cockpit. Lots of good detail threads on it.
I'm ordering two pilots from http://www.hppilots.com/main/page_pr...st_pilots.html I don't really enjoying painting. Anyone have a steady hand? I'm not critical.
