Angler-hi, you experienced the stuff I didn't like about safe as well. The huge turn radius. Though in experienced mode, SAFE shouldn't be doing any limiting at all. Maybe it was the AS3X part? The...

You have good taste in radios. :D I worked up from the 5e, added the 6i, then the Dx8, finally the Dx18g2. Sold the 5e and 6i along the way. And I really should swap the 8 for a Dx6 or 9 just for the...

Can't go wrong with that! Just do yourself a favor and pick up an extra battery or 2 as well. Just don't but those E-Flite ones. Too expensive and not great quality.
