Ugh... tray radios! :-)

Hell, I don't even need a sissy neckstrap (my arms are still strong enough to hold a transmitter, even at my age) so the thought of a tray radio is just mortifying to me.

tray radios are great you get so much finer control with the longer throws and having the radio perfectly at rest in front of you
also stick buttons and switches are the best invention ever

Yeah, but I fly 3D -- I need to be able to bash those sticks around without the risk of taking an eye out because they're so damned long :-)

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand Futaba no longer makes a nine channel receiver, as BB-Q inferred - you would need a 14 channel receiver.

(I don't think Futaba ever made a nine channel system that was not PCM, and that set-up dates back twenty years to the 9z, nice but heavy tx)


All you do is buddy up two 8ch rxs with a jumper. Easy and cheaper than Spektrum or JR if using genuine (I use Frsky)

The day thay sell a transmitter tray with a stuby holder built in, is the day I will buy one. Image

On the 9303/9XII the sliders were in the perfect place - then they went and stuffed them up with the 11X - why????


I have the 11X and yet to use the sliders on the side. I fly everything from 40 size glo to 40% gas.
I don't see a problem with where the sliders are.
