Name that Vehicle?

Hi all, Tis been a while, but I have not been all 'there' for quite some time due to work issues.

Re: Turnigy 2.4

Pretty sure you could use it Bob, you would be limited to the configurations that come with the transmitter, heli, plan and glider. Switches would therefore be set according to the different configs and you could only change the peripherals by selecting the appropriate channels on the reciever. I st...

Re: Turnigy 2.4

Recoil

Hi Guys, I have been struggling with the recoil on the Merk and need some advice. I tried a after market central locking system with no luck and a solenoid with a 10mm stroke, but it doesn't have enough grunt. What have you all used and where can I get the parts??? photos and diagrams welcome Thanks...
