I'm interested

Hey I'm a 13 year old kid with a low post count but please still consider me!
Currently I'm on my second quadcopter and helping my dad's friend who is an architect build one also. I could really use this because then i could have so many more features available and be able to buy clone recievers from hobby king for under $30. If i got this i would give my current radio to my dad's friend to save him money and I would try to donate any extra parts that i can. If i got this it would be such and honor and i could finally get more than 1 reciever for my two quadcopters and my one plane, that will hopefully multiply soon.

You are the guy who makes this forum amazing.


PS here is my first quad that is currently unassembled, after a bad crash.

I recently got back into the rc plane hobby. It's been 20 years or so. The last radio i remember owning was a Futaba and the case was gold anodized aluminum. I knew they were the best back then. Then the kids started joining the family.
I am building a Topflight Gold Spitfire 1/7 scale and kinda waiting on the chance to get the radio so i can continue the build. This radio would be an ideal unit for my plane. Thanks for the opportunity to participate in this event.

Would like to be considered for this one, but will be really happy for who will get it. Would pass away my beginner esky et6i that I still use in some "not so important" planes.

Is this real

I just registered with RCgroups last week and ran across this post while exploring the site. My hats off to the person generous enough to give away such a nice radio. I recently pulled two thirty year old sailplanes from my attic and am looking to upgrade the radio gear and would love to be considered for the radio giveaway. May the most deserving individual be rewarded. Thanks for reading my comments.

This would work great for my scratchbuilt Cap 232. 30% with DLE 55 up front. Here is a link to my thread on here and here is my thread on Flying Giants. the FG one had alot more on it. Hope to have this bird in the air next spring. hopefully on 2.4 and not the 72mhz radio that i have now.

I could really use this, and if I win this I would be giving my DX6i away the same way when it returns from Horzion, lost a plane this last weekend when it got a intermittent issue and broke link.
At first I thought it was the RX, but after trying it on another plane found out while taxing around that it was the TX.
Everyone seems to agree that while some have no issues with Spektrum, and some do, none have issues with Futaba. I would be honored to be the recipient of this TX/RX combo.
If not then who does get it have fun with it.

Wow. You never cease to amaze.

Would love to be considered. It would be great to upgade my 5 channel radio to something that will do flaps, ailerons, and all of the mixes. To keep in the spirit of what you are doing, you will see my DX5e up as a freebe next if I have something like this to replace it with.
