Mine will be here next week. Hope its okay… as opposed to HobbyKing Yak 52 crap. I almost bought one of those in desperation; thanks for the info on the FMS CJ6 that changed my mind.

Ah. Mine isn't water-based; but that stuff is rather inexpensive at Home Depot. I'll get some; thanks.

But not the MinWax polyurethane liquid… right? I happen to have some of that; I use it to waterproof engine mounts/inside of fuselages in tank areas, etc.

Nah. That guy struck me the wrong way; we don't talk about that sort of thing here, but I don't need that nonsense.

Thanks anyway.

Yup. I'll probably end up with one to build at my leisure; I've got servos/motor/ESC/etc. that should fit it all.

Yes. Very true. That's one reason why I actually got a bit interested in that foam Chinese CJ6; it was "different", in style and color.

The Chinese FMS CJ6 that Jogorek shows in the other thread actually looks halfway decent, as opposed to the typical (i.e., most of their offerings) Hobbyking junk crap.

I have one of these, with the Power 32.

IMO, the 32 is "just right"; plenty of power on 4S, but definitely NOT over-powered.

Interesting. But the DX5e transmitter by itself was only 50 bucks... So I think I'll stay with apples/apples and limes/limes.
