new transmitter.

The Futaba transmitters will hang around for a little longer but pretty soon I won’t need them and I will only be using the DX 18.

Real Time value (unless broken, check date and time) here:

Add 5 to 10 mph for cliff edge. Forecast is more of a rough indication of what could happen, not always accurate.
