Where to get micro electronics


Does anyone know where I can get the electronics from a micro 3D plane on their own so I can build an airframe or something to put them in.
Thanks

I just picked up a UM 4-site for 40 at a swap meet. Since it's in better shape than mine, I'll fly that one and my old one will become an organ donor!

Seriously, used Horizon micros are the best source of gear.

Thanks everybody for the websites, they've been really helpful.

And off topic a bit... Ken, I really like your micro triton on the website, it looks like a brilliant plane! I haven't had a kit before (just rtf's and bnf's) so I'm not good with the building or the electronics. Would this kit be okay for me or not?

Hi, esc25
No, the Triton is not a entry level aircraft for learning how to build with depron.
I would recommend something more like the Dakota. The equipment is much easier to access and install. It also flies great.
Your building skills will increase with each aircraft you construct. You only quit learning, when you quit trying.
Keep Them Flying ! Your good friend, Ken

The Dakota looks very nice indeed! In another I was talking about using the champ electronics in a kit. Do you you think they might work in this kit?

If the all up weight is between 1 and 2 found ounces then its a good candidate for the park zone 1S electronics.

Mini Dakota
Uses the UM P-51 motor/gearbox and GWS4530 prop
Optional power from GWJ 7mm Blue gearbox or AP03-4000
Use the Vapor RX brick or the AR6400
Uses a 130mah to 160 mah Lipo cell
Wingspan is 17.75 inches
Flying weight is 32.6 grams plus battery
Very stable indoor flyer.
