Nice ... I like that it's a big plane & durable. $300 is pricey but maybe it'd be a good step up after I've got the basics down on a smaller unit.

A friend at work offered me his Aerostar 40 ... yeah, I could probably crash that

I just picked up RF7. Should save me some money in the long run.
It is definitely helping learn all the different orientations for heli flying. I laugh when in Hover Training every time the heli explodes.
Would there be any advantage using my DX7s over just using the Interlink controller?

My Christmas present to myself just arrived!!





Damn this thing is nice! Makes the Blade 300X I had look like a mall kiosk heli!! hahaa... Nothing but carbon and aluminum as far as the eye can see. No slop. This thing looks brand new. Dude said it had six flights and I believe it!!

Have to go through the IconX FBL controller tonight and get it all set up. I've got 9 batteries so I should be good to go!
