2 DX9 Radios from Horizon Hobby.

Horizon Hobby have once again stepped up to support RC Soaring in USA by donating two complete Radio systems in a limited Black Edition Aluminum carry case. This competition-level radio is at home in the hands of a glider pilot and F3A aerobatic champions alike. It features a 2000mAh 2S Transmitter battery, AR9020 9 Channel DSMX Receiver, an SD Card
and a 12V global Power Supply. The Sailplane Mode has 10mFlight Modes, Dual Rates and Expo, 5 wing types, 3 Tail typesFlap delay and elevator comp, Dual rates and expo plus 10 programmable Mixes. The Tx has Voice Alerts and a 250 Model memory with ModelMatch Technology. Dx9 includes a Timer, a Servo monitor and much much more.
The DX9 lets you keep tabs on important functions without ever taking your eyes off what you’re flying. You can program voice alerts to call out what flight mode you’ve chosen or report telemetry information on demand. You can monitor the model’s battery voltage, signal quality, engine or motor temperature, airspeed, altitude and more. If an alarm goes off, you won’t have to look at the transmitter display to see what’s happening. The DX9 will tell you. With the Wireless Trainer Link DX9 users have the ability to wirelessly link up with other Spektrum transmitters and specially-equipped Spektrum FPV headsets. Once bound to another transmitter or component, ModelMatch™ technology will allow the DX9 to re-link without having to go through the bind process again.

Futaba 14SG 14 Channel System

Futaba 14SG – 14-Channel 2.4GHz Computer Radio System with FASSTest tech. Flybarless gyro support. S.Bus programmability. Telemetry. The 14SG has it all. . . and more! Futaba proudly introduces the 14SG, the only 14-channel system with revolutionary 2.4GHz FASSTest technology. It’s also compatible with Futaba FASST and S-FHSS protocols, so you can fly with virtually any 2.4GHz air receiver Futaba produces.

The 14SG can transmit and receive telemetry data. Install Futaba telemetry sensors (sold separately) to monitor flight data, receive alerts while in flight and more. Heli pilots will prefer the 14SG’s 3-axis gyro support — which makes the 14SG the perfect system for flybarless flight! The innovations don’t stop there. Turn the 14SG over, and you’ll see the construction is as rock-solid as any other Futaba system. It’s also very comfortable to use, thanks to rubber grips that help minimize flyer fatigue — an added bonus that pilots will appreciate.

I have just purchased tickets for a 100 bucks!

Without the support of the soaring community, we would not have been able to go to the F3B worlds this year. The same holds for the F3J team next year. It is bloody expensive to travel with all the team and gear overseas, so they need our help!

So please support the J-team, they are all great guys. I am especially proud of Neal, he is very dedicated to F3J and I am glad he made the team. Go buddy!
