    Walkera DEVO 8S

    Has anybody tried out the Walkera DEVO 8S. It is the only transmitter I have ever seen with a back lit color UI for setting up planes and helis. I think this would make for a cool transmitter review since it is only $199.00 and has a color touch screen UI. Here is a store page with a...

    Beginner Series - A Transmitter focused episode

    Hi guys, Just curious if there's going to be a Transmitter focused episode in the new "Beginner Series". I'm just curious, as I'm looking seriously at the "Bixler 2" and I'm not sure whether to go with the Mode 1 or Mode 2 Transmitter setup. That plus as I'm still a newbie to flying, it'd be...

    Viewer Request: How to use the Trainer port on a Transmitter

    Show idea: differences between TX/RX frequencies and systems (35MHz,2.4GHz,UHF,etc)

    I think this is a confusing topic for many who started off this hobby recently. What advantages are there to each system, range, interference, flying areas, how does it affect video signals for FPV flights, etc.

    Antennas and aerials

    Thought it might be good to put all the antenna and aerial questions in one spot. There's a lot of information out there and it can be hard to find. So here is my question: Is bigger better? ie could you put say the antenna from the cb in your 4x4 on your transmitter and expect better results...

    HK-7x-The Missing Manual

    Surely I am not the only one to have an item that didn't come with a manual but very much needed one. Certainly if we pooled our resources we can make the best of an unfortunate situation. If anyone has a product that lacks a manual or the manual in existence is in need of much improvement, I...
