Looks neat, but if it was me....I'd buy a modern airplane computer radio with the appropriate airplane mixes....

Agreed...more stix is better. What happens when you put a POV system in your cockpit and need to use a stick to control the camera, the throttle/rudder, and the aileron/elevator? Gotta glue a third stick and gimble to your forehead or what?

OK two things,

one, let me tell you how to hold a signal stick, you rap your left hand around the transmitter and your ring finger works the throttle, and your right hand is on the stick and you twist it for aileron and turn it for rudder and push it forward and back for elevator!


two, lets try to keep it on topic, i don't want the moderator to lock this topic:<

Default Perhaps a DX7, rather than 72 mhz

Just my opinion. if you plan to spend $340 on a transmitter get a DX7, so you won't have as many glitches/channel problems. If I didn't have 2 nice computer TX's on 72 mhz and a Spectra module i'd be flying 2.4 ghz for sure.

Really "JR Century 7 Transmitter Receiver NER-527X 7 channel on 72.750" seems to me it is a 72 mhz Channel 24 transmitter. I sill suggest the DX7, if you plan to fly more than one plane on the transmitter(and getting another $340 per plane gets expensive. Fast.) a computer transmitter is worth the price just for the digital trims.

they won't close the thread for trying to decide on a transmitter....after all you can't really fly your future custom built Spitfire without one.

30"......cool...should be a nice parkflyer size.....

Well you really like those "oldschool" transmitters don't you?
If that's what you like Go for it!!
Just make sure you can get compatible recievers for it.

Looks real nice, flaps are probably unecessary for performance based reasons, but the cool factor can't be denied. And you have already shown with your radio interests that you are hard to dissuade so: Good Luck, and turn this into a build log, I'm interested.
