    I think a big selling point on Pattern is that a person can learn the correct way to perform maneuvers. Even if competition isn't a priority, there is so much that can be learned. Anthony is in my...

    The 617's are now made in China, but they still work just as good too.

    I don't know, I've been witness to a lot of unbindings and lockouts by another major brand, but my Futaba's have been rock solid. When I put a new plane together I go to the opposite end of the house...
