It allows you to control what switch operates a function

Sure, the DX8 does that in all sorts of ways. I'll probably never use it, but it's there for the asking.

In my complacency, while waiting for "Mid February" to arrive, I ordered a Hitec Aurora 9 with 7 ch. RX tonight .. got free freight and $50 off with an ad number. Being so proud of myself, I went berserk and back-ordered another Beaver .. no free freight, but $25 off of that one !? I wonder if this is too good to be true ?

Now I have to order 4 Max amps 3S-2250 LiPo packs .. on back order for three weeks .. ARGhhhhhhhhhhh .. what's going on here ??

Checked with my LHS today to see if there were any updates on the backorder. He was told today that they hope to have some info by Monday. They also told him that they have almost 800 of these backordered right now! I really hope they have enough to go around when they do come in!

When these hit the streets I would imagine we might see a surge of activity here ! ~ Robin

I wonder if they had any idea how popular this Beaver would be before they actually produced it.
They should of done a survey.
I bet it would be the same if they decide to do a dehavilland Twin Otter package with Wheels, floats and skis

Today I decided to try flying the Beaver with my Contour GPS headcam.
Its a bit on the heavy side for the Beaver but it still flew well.
It was more demanding on the battery so I flew a few min shorter.
Here is a small video from this test flight

I use the Software called DASHWARE from Dashware.com
It reads all the datas from the GPS on the camera, I just choose the gauges and place them where I want or I can even create some.
