All I can think of is Horizon Hobby but I'm sure there are others. I remember doing a quick Google search not too long ago and found a couple more online places that sell them but the price was the same everywhere I looked. I wish Tower carried Spektrum stuff. Personally, I like dealing with them better.

http://www.espritmodel.com/index.asp...OD&ProdID=5039

looks like its 200 bucks everywhere. If you want to upgrade, go for the DX7 w/ AR6100 for 70 bucks more assuming you already have a bunch of servos .... http://www.espritmodel.com/index.asp...odID=5586&HS=1

Just tell her it has a memory on it for 10 airplanes you dont have yet, but maybe she will settle for 1 out of those 10.

Or do like I do with my wife....I'll prob get 10 years use out of it as I have with my older radios, so thats only $20 bucks a year..or better yet - its 18 cents per day.

18 cents a day!! Your a genuis DAVE!!

That will work, also I will tell her that you can't CRASH a radio. Unlike my Super Cub,

Well unless your really skilled I guess you could find a way to slam it into mother earth.
