Flying Chair goes modern


Wanting to modernize my chair abit, I decided to make it more useable and operator friendly.

1) Make seat adjustable (DONE)

2) Make Radio system Spektrum compatible. (DONE) https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1651993

3) Make radio settings changeable and update radio. (Done)
(see cannibalized Futaba 7C) Pots from original Conquest Radio will now connect to 7C motherboard and such in project case.

4) Upholster seat (Done)
