Its not the cost but the % increase that's worrying, and please don't keep saying it's a bargain. What has changed so drastically from last year to force such a high % increase.

Yes Peter. The arrangement shown above is OK for electric models, but for ic you really need the fuselages to be nose-down.

Needs to be nose up or clunk pipe can turn and jam up plus fuel can run into exhaust if nose down

Have to agree with dave especially about the cliquiness its full of it, if your face doesn't fit your not welcome, and say something a mod disagrees with and your out of here.

To be honest a lot of the advice isn't always that good, that is unless you fly a 1950s design.

Well that's my piece said and I suppose I'll be banned again but there's millions of email addresses out there.

Hello ever thought of making your own mind up? If you say you are building a model requiring 8 functions (which I find highly unlikely) can’t you work this out all by your self ? Or like the rest of the sad so-called experts do you need some else to tell you what to do ?

Call me old fashioned for fifty,but personally i think the technology is going a bit OTT,i wanted a tx just for signal reliability,not for numerous programming,like ive mentioned before,i wont even use half of what it can do,but each to the own.happy landings chaps.

Unfortunately you have been steam rollered by the frsky mob, just look what I can do, full up elevator and it flashes the car head lights and full flap it starts the car and puts the heating on. Won't say what I use but have never have any programing problems including quite complex glider set ups and is the simplest thing ever to use, I did briefly own a taranis when they first came out but just sold it as it was just unnecessary to be so complicated.

Now I know I will come under attack telling me its a learning process and it can do more than my transmitter can but I do believe you should have waited for the jeti. Sorry but that's the truth.

Tried to use them earlier this year but ended up getting my money back from PayPal. Was assured before I ordered item was in stock and ready for dispatch. All over Facebook similar storys of woe. If you can buy elsewhere I would advice you take that route, if you do have to use them pay with PayPal, at least you can get your money back if it all goes wrong.

Why do you repeatedly post links to external sites that aren't clickable?

If you buy from them make sure you use PayPal, bought a few months back part showing in stock rang and checked as I had heard a few bad stories about them, told it was in stock so ordered though web site. Cut a long story short never got it ended in a PayPal claim.

Sounds like to many clubs that make rules for the fun of it. The biggest rule the club I fly with is your an adult and the rest follows easily, membership is full and we have ten on the waiting list and looks like only one might not rejoin, and where not cheap so perhaps the best way of getting the members lots of clubs are struggling for is get rid of all the old jobs worths and get a sensible adult committee.
