Are you sure you didn't have the tx set to "grandpa walker" mode? :d

Not trying to start an argument, I genuinely want to know; what's the advantage of a long throw, old style throttle trim lever over the momentary digital trim switch? I used to fly glow powered aircraft, and as soon as digital trims became available, so did the throttle cut function linked to whatever switch you want.

There looks to be plenty of cons to the old style lever too. Having the radio "handed" would make it harder to change modes, and also make the radio more expensive. I'd also have to remember to check the lever position before changing models, and before every flight. What am I missing?

Force of habit as much as anything. Years of using the analog trim would be a really hard habit for me to break. My JR9503 has analog trim on the throttle and digital everywhere else and I like it that way. I don't even think about where the throttle trim is set on my electric planes and I have never had a problem. I always center it to start my nitro and gas stuff.

My 1sq will flip no problem if you turn the gain up to 70-80 on the stock radio. By default its at 38 and I'd be surprised if 75' would be enough to complete a flip. Do you have the option to change the rates or gyro gain in real flight?

Wish I would have known that when I flew it. Maybe I would have had a different view of that little quad...

Lol. I bought that quad soon after hearing about it on the crashcast. It's a ton of fun. Gets going pretty quick when you want it to and does what you tell it to. I bet that episode of the crashcast sold tons of those things.

Yeah I heard about them on The RC Today Show and bought one. Told Crash how awesome they were and he bought one.

Oven cleaner will take the plastic chrome finish off your 9503 and leave you with the matte plastic surface underneath.

Just sayin'

What about the dye or paint the RC car guys use for tinted windshields? If you could put on a uniform coat you could probably get some nice results.

I like my 1sq but if I'd have seen this first I would have gotten it. I've recommended it to several guys after hearing about it too.
