    I was absolutely amazed when I tried ChinaKote from HK. Or whatever they are calling it these days. It worked beautifully, better than the MonoKote I have been using. And another up side was that...

    Chris, I probably would go for the Taranis radio if I needed another radio, but I still have a new Futaba 10C to back up the old 7C that I have been using forever, so I don't need another radio. The...

    Oh, forgot to mention that he insists this kit weighs 15 pounds and he implores (his word) me to ship 15 pounds for less than $30.00. He never mentions dimensions at all.
