Old micro RX's Plantraco & others


I am just getting back into RC planes. I used to design and build all sorts of FFF and other foam planes. Mostly micro but also very large, slow, light biplanes etc.

As I am getting back into it I just want one transmitter and simple, newer gear. It looks like there are good off-the-shelf innards for small but not radically small planes. I have a bunch of gear from the dark ages, about 10 to 15 years ago.

Attached is a set of photos of Rx's of various sorts. I will mail them to anyone who can actually use them. I have a couple more in beat up planes as well.

I doubt they are useful any more, but here they are. I would like someone to take the whole bunch and ship some on to the next taker. I would forward the contacts for the next taker. First come gets it all. I will pay US domestic postage.

PS a Plantraco Tx is also available.

Requests will be forwarded


I have sent the whole inventory on. Post interest here if you think you can use an RFFS or Plantraco Rx. It will be up to PietenpolAC as to what is surplus to his needs. Do not post address or phone numbers, just PM.

Hi Nathanel,

John sent me what he had a while back. I just bought a house and am in the process of moving. Everything is packed up. If there is a Butterfly RX in there, I can send it. It is too small for what I do. I know there are the regular size Plantraco RX's that were sent and I will use those When I get moved in and unpacked, I will post what I wont' use and is available.

No Butterfly


I think the only Rx's were RFFS and Plantracto. A check to see if I am wrong, as indicated, would not hurt.

Is the green receiver in the bottom left corner with the two antenna wires a Plantraco rx? is that a 3ch rx?
