Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

DB that just means you have shed loads of props in the first place ;-)

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

I have a 35 Mhz 6 Channel radio, if I have to use it when I require extra channels for GPS would this slightly older radio be ok to use these days.

I don';t think you';d find anyone recommending a 35mhz system these days.  Too much risk of interference (unless flying at a club with a peg-board system).  Also, the rx antenna on a multi could be difficult to route without it getting tangled in the props :)

As far as channels goes, 6 should be enough, so something like a Dx6i for example as a cheap 2.4ghz radio system would be great.

Hi Balders, I';m not too worried about the length of the antenna, I';m sure I could route it along legs etc to use most of it up :)

The reason I like the Futaba is that there is much less configuration and channel mixing and it has a rotary switch that could be replaced with a rotary switch to set various command states.

I suppose its a big gamble using 35Mhz when you think of the cost and time involved in building a quad. I have a wee scanner somewhere so I must dig that out and see if I can hear any activity.

My main concern was that the motors may generate interference or the F\C I';ve heard some funny noises generated my electronic gear :).

Thanks for your input mate, I would like to use this gear but more digging I think before I commit.
