This might not make sense to folks from Europe, but I told them when I saw it here, that if they want to sell a bunch in Florida they should offer it an alligator skin.

I am not worried about that:

- The material is Alcantara. This is a 100% composite and easily cleaned.
- The two sections that are covered are clip-on-clip-off, so replacement or even for cleaning is very easy.

The main advantage of this covering is that the transmitter has a very secure feel and will not slip from your grip, even when you have sweaty palms during that competition sequence.

Cheers,

JanR

I’ve been flying mine over a month now, purposely not cleaned any part of it to see how the finish goes. It’s been handled by dozens of people and even today at a jet meeting where we had Kero on our hands, it does not get messy. If one of the people who blast glow engine exhaust over it, or are just plain messy with fuels...does not matter what the finish is!
I’ve seen 3 month old Txs that look like they have been buried in a garden...

I have only been flying EDF and props so far as some of the jet related programming was not installed into my Core Tx. That’s about to change, so my CARF Joker is ready to go Core. Martin Pickering was flying Core at Jet Power this year and the Elster 3-D boys too.

Best Regards

Dave
