Default Castle Creations berg 7p anyone?

I just picked up a CC berg 7p for my T-rex, and was just curious if anyone else had any experience with this Rx. from past reading the castle stuff is top notch, as I haven't heard of much trouble from them. just wondering what others had experienced.

Just call me X! (or Gary works, too.)
Another signature landing! Somebody help me find all the pieces...

I've got one! But it's still in the package. I bought it because it was on sale and I know I will eventually need it.

I have heard of one issue with them. Something loose on the inside.

thanks Frank. I knew I couldn't be the only person that had one. I guess I need to check mine for loose parts.

PS I'm switching totally to Berg Rxs. I really like them. I used to use only Hitecs, but have been slowly converting.

thanks, Frank. good reading!

the funny thing is the instructions that come with it mention the outer case can be removed to save weight. I was going to leave it on because it was going into my rex, and that tiny bit of weight wouldn't matter. looks like I'm going to crack it open after all! when I think of what possibly might have happened!

so far (with the exception of the loose bit), I really like this Rx. haven't had it in the air yet, but range testing and setup has left me impressed.

This is the one that discusses the loose discriminator.

Before I went all Spektrum I was in the process of moving ALL of my Rx's to CC Berg's...they are light weight, SMALL and always worked perfectly. Plus the 7P has programming functions for channels and failsafes

that was one of the features that sold me on it, initially. did you ever have trouble with the loose discriminator?
