I do. It's a solid radio for its price. BUT, you'll outgrow it pretty quickly. It works fine when you have one or two planes that don't require a lot of trimming, servo reversing or expo. Once you...

Trainers DO get boring once you've got your flying figured out, but that's OK, because a pile of crushed balsa would have been even more boring. :)

And as someone pointed out in the other thread, the PZ T28 is excellent too. It was my first 4ch plane and it still flies four years later.

My rule of thumb on LiPos is that the voltage per cell on WOT with a fresh battery shouldn't really drop below the nominal voltage (3.7V). If it does, you may want to investigate the battery a bit...

I do APC up to about 14x7 and wood above that. The reason is that the plastic (composite) props tend to get a bit too wobbly above that size. I have a 16x8 APC on my 58" Edge and you can clearly hear...

I agree with Mark. The first thing I would check is whether the prop shaft is straight. Does the plane vibrate more than usual when you spin up?
