By the way I have 2 of those orange RX's been a year and they are still working great.
Good luck teaching the grand kids that will be a fun time for all of you.
I think I have solved my dilema. My primary object was to have my "co-pilots" help me fly. I took your advice and bought the Futaba 4FY-4 trainer box. The second step would probably get everyone's approval.
I bought another airplane!
I bought a Great Planes FlyLite Slow Flyer. Basicaly just an oversize Champ but I can put one of my Orange receivers in it and stay with my Futaba radios. Now my 8 and 12 year old grandsons can help me fly - heck, they will probably show me how.
Thanks for your suggestion it got me down the right path.
