Default Spektrum DX7 Tx

It's been a flawless radio. I changed the pack out for the Sanyo Eneloops. Holds a great charge and never had the slightest problem with this transmitter. I will include the original box, manual and wall charger. No servos. $125.00. Free shipping to lower U.S. 48 only and with delivery conf. and insurance. Check, M.O. or Paypal. Paypal address must be confirmed. ***No shipping to P.O. Boxes. Sorry.***
Thanks

New to the hobby, wanting a high speed reciever, heard the spektrums are Badass for my helicopters, and I'm wanting to transition to planes. What does it mean when you say no servos??? Hate to sound dumb, but ya gotta learn somehow...
Thanks,
Ransom out.

You can buy radios many different ways.

Complete radios are transmitter, plus receiver maybe a battery pack, and servos.
You can buy just the transmitters or just the receivers, or just the servos too.

The servos are what are inside the aircraft that do what the receiver tells them to in order to move a flight control surface or any number of accessories.

Servos are hooked up to the receiver. The transmitter sends a signal to the receiver, and the receiver tells the servo to move. The servos are connected to the flight surfaces (rudder, elevator, aileron) or to the swash plate on a helicopter. This is how the aircraft is controlled.

He said "no servos" to indicate he was selling JUST the transmitter.

Welcome to Wattflyer,

Just keep looking and reading through the beginners area, plus the rest, and you will learn a lot.
There really isn't a question that hasn't been asked before.

Starting with the correct type of plane, which is a beginners plane, is the most important thing you can do.
This type of plane will almost fly itself, it just wants to know what direction to fly. They will stay in a smooth flight unless you tell them otherwise. If you get it into a bad position just let go of the control sticks not the transmitter (it has happened) and the plane will turn right side up.
When you have so many flights on a trainer that you are totally bored ( at least 50 flights without a crash) then it is time to move up to a more responsive plane.
Then you start learning all over again, some of my friends have many 1000's of RC flights on the books, yet are a little nervous with each new plane. They may not admit it but they are. A full unlimited stunt plane, that the champions fly, may take 100-150 flights just to get all trimmed to the way the pilot likes it. Then he puts another 100 flights on it before he goes to a contest with it.

I know this sounds like a lot of things to learn, and it is, but flying a good RC plane is a very gratifying feeling. This is the best hobby out there.

Thanks for the advice. RC has really helped me through tough times. I am an Iraq vet, 03-04, Fallujah... So tweaking my helis is great... Now I'm wanting to step up to planes as well. My wife doesn't like the expense, but it is so awsome to me. I agree, best hobby out there. You get to build, learn, work, (which I cannot do anymore), and play all at once. I'm absorbing all I read, learning all I can, and improving every day. Thanks for the advise guys, and taking time to explain. Catch ya on the flip.

Glad we could help out a bit. Thanks for your service too! I served in the first gulf war in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait in 90-91. You'll find a lot of Vets here on the site so keep plugging away and best of luck to you!

I wish to give you a huge thank you for your service and your sacrifice.

My older daughter was married to a Army Ranger for 4 years and is now engaged to an Army Sargent that just came back from Afghanistan, my younger daughter is married to another Army Sargent. My mom married an Army Sargent, I wonder if that is where they got the idea, except that my mom died 3 years before they were born. Strange how things go sometimes.

I got screwed out of serving by a bad left eye, but I ride with the Patriot Guard Motorcycles, in honor of anyone that has served in our military, it is the least I can do.
Sometimes my arthritis sure makes it hard to get on and off, but I will ride until I can't get on.

Thank you for your kind words. My hat is off to your family, the military life ain't easy on families. I'm sorry you couldn't join, I would trade my 6 yrs as an Infantryman for nothing... Arthritis... I'm 31 and have it from the neck down... Doesn't plague me yet, but its scary to know I've got it bad at this age... Patriot Guard, hats off again. You guys do so much for Wounded Warriors, the Wall Rides, and protecting the innocent from those ignorant *%#$@*!/ from Westboro Babtist Church, (just moved to FL from Topeka KS), so thank you sir, maybe well see each other on the road this summer... And get some flights in...
