I opened it, and you're right it isn't that big. However, I really don't want to assemble it, then try to move it into our new house without breaking it...

But thanks again everyone!

Well, it's nice to hear that it will bind to my Champ, too. I mainly use it to just figure out what the wind conditions and other stuff are like before I put the T-28 up.
Agh, another windy day....

I'm pretty sure it will bind to the Champ, but if it doesn't I still have the old tx, but I am positive it will bind to my T-28, and that's what really matters to me.

Sounds like a nice idea. How much would a setup cost for something like that? I think I might try that. I almost always fly around 5-7 PM so it's usually getting a bit dark out.

Yeah, figured that out yesterday. I noticed when I came in for a landing it acted just a bit tail heavy, so I figured it had too much up trim on the elevator. Thanks for trying to help anyways!

:) I guess I'll have to get over my fear of not being able to fly well, and crash. If it crashes I could always repair it........ Now I just have to wait for the weather to improve.

Sounds fun. :) Unfortunately, I do not take off, nor do I have the room for it. I always hand launch. I fly in my local park, so I guess I don't have a choice.
