RE: Anybody Flying a GP Super Sportster 40 Mkll ARF?

I have the .40 sized SS. I use mine as more of a speed plane as it has an O.S. 55AXin it. I think you'll find it pretty equivalent to the Escapade and the 4 Star in terms of capabilities and...

RE: Smoking Fuel?

RE: New to 2.4 buying on R/C

I use Spektrum myself, but going to 2.4 with them Futaba, Airtronics or Hitec is a good way to go. No Freq. pin issues or shootdowns possible.

Unless you want to move and reprogram Rx's you will...

RE: U-Can-Do Saito 100 or OS 91fx?
