Probably because it has a plug, and the Champ Brick doesn't.

I know lol, but don't the Micro lite kits plug into battery connector?

Not the set that you can switch on and off from your transmitter.

That looks awesome nice work! What type of paint did you use and what color?

I installed a camera inside my Champ. Details in this post, in the big Champ thread.

It is a promising start but there are still some bugs to chase down.

Hey LittleBird - where did you find your paint to match the plane (struts)? Did you have to blend your own color, or did you find a good match? Thanks!

I bet canopy glue would work like a charm... The only drawback is a 24 hour cure time. But, IMHO, well worth the wait.

I love my ID.
I had successful ROW with stock Champ. ROW is much easier with Champ than J-3 CUB. I blew up my float design for J-3 Cub by 10%. Will post video later.
