Hi Balsa Welcome to Wattflyers 2.4 radios are ok, but I love my JR 72mhz Radio with a BERG receiver, just as good as a 2.4 if not better IMHO, as the Berg receiver will lock on to your Transmitter, and less 2.4 problems like brown outs, short range and masking, never ever a problem with a JR radio and berg receiver if you have a 72Mhz radio keep it and get a Berg Receiver, that will be a rock solid combination 99% of the time, unless youy are in a real bad RFI area, then you need to get a 2.4 radio, Take care and HAPPY HOLIDAY TO YOU AND YOURS, Chellie

Only use a Berg Crystal, I like their 4L receiver on my small planes

You are just the person to lead the High Desert guys into wind flying.....not to fight the wind but work with it......and for goshsakes will make you learn what your left thumb is there for besides the throttle!! hehehe.

Fly out at IE enough and you will learn to fly with the breeze.....I imagine the desert field are equally fun

Teach them well, Chellie

Richard said that he was not going to go flying today, if the wind is blowing 6 or 7 mph I said WHAT, that nothing, that we Renegades fly in 20+MPH wind all the time well after I got done with him, he was Flying My Mavrick in 20 to 25MPH wind and loving it, he ordered 2 planes from Rusty at Rc Products That will fix him to mess with a Renagade and say he can fly in Wind, LOL I also showed him Erans video flying in 20+ MPH Wind, Lots of very Sweet People here in the Victor Valley High Desert Wattheads Rc Flyers Club, That Means you too AL and Steve and James Take care, Chellie

The feeling's mutual. When are you coming out to the field again, Chellie? ? Sometime could you give me some instruction on "knife edge" flying?....maybe when I get a Mavrick built? I've never tried it.........I just recently got to where I can fly inverted. Got an email from PayPal today - my two Mavrick's are in the mail - oh boy

Thats great to hear Richard that your Planes are on there way

Ok on the Knife edge, Flying from right to left, use your ailerons to bank left, when the plane is on its side, hold right rudder and release the the aileron a little, hold the rudder to keep the plane flying level, your rudder now becomes the elevator, and your elevator now becomes your rudder, sometimes you will have to add a little (elevator now acting as a rudder, to keep the plane in a straight line ) its not hard at all, it just takes practice, hope that helps, Chellie

Your Mavrick is going to teach you a lot, as its a very responsive plane, that can do it all, and is cheap, so you dont have to be afraid to try new things, dont even worry about crashing it, its cheap fun, just throw it around, be Vicious with it My Mavrick is the plane that I fly first to break the rust with as they say, then i fly my deltas, jets and wing

That sounds difficult, Chellie. I tried for weeks to fly inverted, and couldn't do it. The Real Flight simulator was a life saver - it was the only way I learned. Guess I'd better start using it for knife edge. Thanks.............Rich

Hey RT: I was out there at 8 this morning and it was in the 20's! Made two 18 min. flights with the 6' Telemaster. Jack was there flying a gas plane I thought it was called the "Electric Field".
