There might also be another factor here. I've used my brand of radio for just short of 30 years now, with very few problems or issues. That matters greatly to me, and as such I place far less consideration on value for money etc. I'm just happy knowing that after spending some considerable time building models in the first instance, the radio bit is less likely to let me down. Oh, and the UK based service agent offers an extremely quick turn around when servicing is eventually required. That's a plus point too.

It really is that simple for me.

I would point out that I've never lost a model to a radio problem Percy, been a lifelong JR user, now using Frsky, money nor time spent has never been the deciding factor when I buy radio gear, safety trumps all other considerations every time. Things changed, they didn't get less safe nor reliable, big boys have competition now.

Frsky, reason ? fed up being ripped off for over priced RX's

Reliability ? still 100% same as my JR was.

Never suffered from radio failure, have rarely set models up and found glitches present, I still use my JR9X 35 mhz set but it now has a Frsky module in, also use a Taranis, question has never been about the "best" brand for me, I got fed up shelling out lots of money for RXs, I don't buy used or from iffy sources, once Frsky proved it's reliability, I moved.

I loved JR radios until they went to the "plastic fantastic" robot style radios. never bought one since. With a bit of luck they might go back to a quality feel again.

Given the announcement from JRAmericas that is probably about as likely as Man City being relegated this season! wink

For clarification...Man City are a English Premier League football team, currently on course to win the title by a wide margin. wink

Well, the Great British Public have filled both decks of the outrage bus for this one - to the point where they're hanging off the back and tumbling out of the windows...teeth 2

Just try and accept that the job is being done properly.

It is being investigated in accordance with established procedures by professionals, who will present their findings for a decision to be made in due course, and that (I have no doubt) the arrested person will be being dealt with by trained people who have the utmost concern and sympathy for his situation, if the circumstances are as being reported.

I've been first on the scene at suspicious deaths and latterly spent many, many hours painstakingly examining such scenes - and it takes time, a lot of time, to eliminate all the variables. If the police were to accept everything at face value, they'd be accused of shallowness and neglect of duty. They can't win with the public, can they?


I believe the Public would like more police Pete, majority are on their side. wink

Nearly worth a new tread, so what flies well in very poor conditions?

For me its a 4-Max Yeti which is low cost, pusher that's almost an indestructible flying delta and hides I the back of the car just weighting for the day I would not dare fly anything else!

What you want a joke or a serious answer ? crashes, I've had very few, emotions, embarrassment and relief that no one got hurt.

Given the amount of comment "drones" generate or BMFA safety threads, A certs and the like, I find it odd how flippantly we talk about crashes. Or maybe I'm just being grumpy ?
