    Andre Gets A Taranis.

    Oddly enough I never had an intention to own a Taranis it just sort of happened. If you listen to the recent podcast you'll hear the back store. I'd gone for a flight with the Sukhoi and accidentally lifted off in Stagility mode/ high rates. "Really wish my radio would talk to me..." Plus as...

    Why fly Mode 1?

    Hey guys, I have been in the RC community for several years now and I just cannot understand why people fly Mode 1. To me Mode 2 just seems so much more intuitive and simply superior in terms of control, accuracy and learning curve. Lets face it Elevator and Ailerons in a plane/quad are...

    27mhz to 2.4ghz?

    I have an old 27mhz radio, from Heng Long. They make tanks. I bought it for an exuberant price from my brother. I want to upgrade it to 2.4ghz system, with ease. All I have done is cleaned the internals, and remove the spring that resets the throttle to 50%. Can anyone give any advice or tips...

    Looking for room to grow

    So I am looking at spending about $100 to $150 this summer on a radio and receiver combo. I want to have at least 6 channels to work with so I can do bomb drops and stuff. Something that lets me have presets for different planes I own would be nice. Im open to anything a little over or under...

    Is the Taranis for me?

    I'm looking for a transmitter that I can keep for a long time to come. I see the Taranis and it looks good, but I could use an opinion. I will be flying quads, hexes, helis, etc. for now but I plan on also flying planes later. I would like it to be able to work with Spektrum and AnyLink, and I...

    Robot communications

    I know this may not be the right place for it but I'm building a fully autonomous robot that will traverse through any building and map out a blueprint of what's in there. (Original idea was three quad copters, but seemed a little dangerous with all those props flying around people :) ) I'm...

    Number of channels and telemetry

    Hi, I am looking at buying a new Transmitter and am relatively new in the hobby but anyway, this is my question. Why is having more channels good? What can you use them for that makes spending an extra couple of hundred dollars worthwhile. I mean once you have 6 channels: rudder, elevator...
