You are entitlled to your money back from the retailer under the sale of goods act as the item is not fit for purpose (general recall). Do not be fobbed off with the response that the items are too old (trading standards will confirm this). It's the shops problem to get the money back or the goods exchanged from the distributers/manufacturers, then, you can add the extra money to the refund and get what you want.

No, going to get a 2.4 modul for my Futaba '9C' and keep my '8' for 35. I've never had any probs on 35 in the past approx 20 years. I only got the 6i to go with the mCX as a better alternative to the E-Flight controller and as I am now going petrol, 2.4 might be useful.

Bought mine 9/1/09 and it was faulty, though not at first (thought my senior moments had all joined into one when I could not control my mCX). Horizon were only going to replace the faulty elevator pot. But, as all the pots were from the same batch I was not happy, AFTER ALL WHO KNOWS WHEN ANOTHER POT MAY GO FAULTY! Anyway the model shop (Steve Webs) gave me my money back without question.

Without digging out all my old mags and working from memory (there's a little pea size bit of grey matter in my head) I think the COBRA may have been a  variation of the DC WASP. But I could be talking a load of cobras.

Well here's my two penny's worth (or should that be 2.4 to make one new penny),

Became interested in aero modelling @7years old (born 1947) and started reading Aeromodeller around '58-'59. Must have built almost all of the KK flying scale models with limited success (perseverance and the optimism of youth). Never finished the Veron Cardinal, my mother accidentally broke the built but uncovered wing.

I lived in central London (Elephant & Castle) and it was a bus ride to the nearest park (Ruskin Park) to fly????? my KK rubber models. It was Clapham common in the early '60s for radio control, but only in boats. I remenber the questionair in the aeromodeller and bought the first RCM&E and have continued to buy it to the present day. Infact I have every issue published; did I hear some one say- 'sad person get a life?'

Built my first Rx in '62. It was the 'UK RECIEVER' published in the RCM&E (still have the Rx). Followed by a valve Tx using a 3A5(DCC90) double triod valve also published in the RCM&E by I think 'windy' Kreulen (a Dutch contributer). Only used these in boats. By the late '60s participation in modelling took a back seat as work, women, marriage, children and house buying (not necessarily in that order) took my attention.

Came back to the fold in '76-'77 when I purchased a second hand Futaba DigiMax 4 digital outfit and put it in a plane called a 'Jolly Roger'. This was short lived and a Galaxy Models Escort soon followed. Got my 'A' cert. in '80 (still the SMAE then) and have continued aeromodelling to the present day, other than a 2 year break for a divorce.

I've got a new vintage 'Fuji 099', with R/C throttle and a 'SKY SCOOTER' plane and thought it would be fun to conceal the modern gear and have the old 'UK Rx' on display in the cabin suspended by rubber bands as we used to do.

Do you think I could fool anybody???
