  1. Hi Rich sorry for the delay. probably now sorted but make sure that tx is on multi channel,not 14 chan.
  2. Just arrived.Seems brill.Upgraded from 8FG.Anyone else got one.any advice welcome.
  3. Hi Rich, Steve answering.I agree with you about the need for extension leads on ail & flaps.Not Y leads.I suppose its done so you could use a 5 channel Tx.They could put longer leads on though.As regards flying, GREAT.I also have a sonic 185 but this knocks spots off that.Put it in a dive & flick butterfly & it floats down so slow.Does not roll very well though.Fitting the tail on with sellotape before you can fly is a bit of a pain.Other than that an excellent foamy glider is my view.
  4. YEAH LETS START THAT THREAD. that way someone else might join in.
  5. JUST BOUGHT RADIAN PRO MYSELF.WHAT DO YOU THINK OF IT.THE OTHER GLIDER I HAVE IS SONIC 185.
  6. HA HA get them to do repairs. they fly,crash & i do repairs. to be honest i dont know what you do with 18 either,i have FUTABA 8FG which has 16 & i only use 9 at max.perhaps some one else has suggestions.surly there are more people out there? arnt there.come on dont be shy.
  7. Hi rich what to do with 18 channels.simple,1.open boot to put bin bag in with remnants of the plane you were just flying. 2.warm up car heater..3make the tea. in other words you DONT need 18.its just there if needed. i live in Taunton Somerset.Been out of the hobby since the 70'S.wow what changes there have been.trying to encourage the 2 kind to take up flying. that way i wont get so much sitck when i go out.
  8. what about this then DX18 tx from Spektrum.rough estimate of price is $799.should knock futabas 18MZ for six. check it out here http://www.spektrumrc.com/Products/Default.aspx?ProdId=SPM18000&view=test
