Brodak has a user settable timer for the throttle but i would also like it go to fly by wire too. I know a couple of guys that hang a tx on their belts and have a rx in the plane but still use a std bellcrank for the surfaces. Kinda bulky. Need to lighten it up some. Thanks
Seems to me that picking up a cheap Spektrum transmitter and an inexpensive back yard type of receiver would not add much weight to the model.
Some of those Spektrum transmitters go for around $60 or so.
