The only thing that comes close is my Graupner mc 24.

But, this is a far superior value! (I think.).

Years ago, my instrument instructor admired my shiny new Grumman Tiger and three weeks later he flew a 310 into a mountain.

Sometimes you are the windshield, sometimes you are the bug.

Today, I'm the bug!

That is what everyone said about Futaba when they first came onto the scene. Futaba used to be a game changer.

I have asked FrSky for a solution to the issue in general and am awaiting a response.

Either way, we will take care of you.

Wayne, when you send folks new bats I suggest including a zip tie.

Don't ask....

Oh, I'm sure of that...time to dust off the A model, which I almost listed for sale!

Let me go on record, here: as a very early Taranis A buyer, I have ordered many sensors, receivers and parts from Wayne, and as is generally agreed, here, he is one of the best retail sellers in the industry!

For new comers to the thread, I'll say it again (have not gotten in harness, yet), this is an amazing value and all the old issues with the A, B and plus seem to have been successfully addressed!

So does mine. Doesn't seem to be a problem. Had my 1.8m F5B glider up to limit of vision with no issues.

O.K., I've tried the strap thingy and it seems fine, but it's my first so what do I know.

The arms do flex a bit, but not enough to concern me.

Jetis, I suspect this thing will ultimately eat your lunch.

And, yes, I can afford Jeti, but why bother? .

I am very glad the harness is working for you. When you were having second thoughts I said you should really try it because it very well might work fine for you. How the transmitter is positioned to ones body is a very individual specific issue. Even if it did not work fine for you, I was confident there were plenty of interim and long term fixes, none of which diminished significantly the value of the Taranis E in my opinion.
