Gooday all,
Greetings from Australia (Merrylands West, Sydney)
After an absence of 20 years (Family and financial), I am back into RC, and have joined the dark side, LOL, 2.4g Futaba 14SG.
I have now upgraded to Futaba 18SZ. The touch screen is much easier than the jog dial of the 14SG.
Programming almost the same.
The 14SG is now relegated to “trainer” via the Futaba wireless buddy box.
Have now successfully assisted 3 newbies to learn to fly rc.
What a transformation from my old Futaba Gold 6 and 7 channel sets.
I fly at Sydney Society of Model Engineers (SSME) "Model Park", Luddenham NSW

Hobby King Bix 3, R7008SB, many sorties (very relaxing).
