Hi

I have been looking at them, but never got round to getting one, I seen the ones with new soft ware added, due to early problems, but looking on your link, it's been re'flashed, :P good price :) ok for bench testing, save's your good radio from dust and damage. :P
I use their Bec units, Servo speed controllers, RC on/off switches , and all work great, never let me down yet. :D

Cheers Wiggy, personally I have always used Futaba, I especially like the 7C so don’t want to change unless it’s a good change

I have one, and am very pleased with the build quality.
It's a nice solid unit in your hands and can't be knocked for the price.
It is 8 channel PPM and 9 channel Pcm but only comes with an 8ch rx. I don't know the compatibility with other receivers, so in reality it is an 8 channel system.
The instructions aren't worth the paper they're written on and therefore google is your friend.
When I first switched it on I thought I had a doa unit as it came up with an error message and a continuous beep. A little googleling and I discovered that all the switches had to be in the down position before switching it on, and after that no problems.

Skippy has a version one, which he thinks is really good value.

Hi Mark

Spring = Out of my futaba "parts" box.
Arm = I used some strong black stryrene (same thickness) and the left gimbal arm to make a pattern for the right gimbal box. So sort of copied it. :ugeek:

A bit of trial and fit a couple of times and its centered perfectly and both feel the same. 8-)

The one time something I tried actually worked first time :D
