Apparently the Champ is RTF at that price to hook new people into the hobby and the tx is pretty much a freeby. That is why it's not offered as a BNF. Most will start with it (good choice
) and buy more things to fly after that in BNF and perhaps upgrade their tx too. I started out a bit different and already had upgraded my tx so the one with my Champ is still zip-tied into the box. I could have saved money over-all if I had started with the Champ. I still fly it BTW. Seems no matter where you go from the Champ, you will still hang on to it and fly it, it really is that fun to fly.
