    Madison Components Inc. offers various handy products for the RC enthusiast. One of these products is a Transmitter Tray. I have used a tray before and I really like them. Even though I am a thumbs flyer, it allows me easy access to the switches and knobs without having to worry about keeping the radio steady. Even a neck strap doesn't provide the same stability that a tray does.

    Product Type: RC Accessory
    Manufacturer: Madison Components Inc.
    Product: Transmitter Tray
    Material: Acrylic and steel
    Price: $29.99
    Parts Layed out
    Radio Guards
    Retainer clip
    Toggle Bolts

    The tray parts are at a minimum which makes assembly quick. The acrylic tray has a paper backing that protects it from scratches. There are burn marks on the paper that indicate to me that it was either laser cut or CNC routed. The two longer support rods secure to the tray using a washer on each side, nut and lock washer. There are two plastic tubes included that slide on the support rods to protect your radio.

    Securing your radio is easy as the retainer clip hugs the radio handle and is advertised to fit most radios. The retainer is tightened down using a set of toggle bolts on the backside. This makes installing and removing your radio a piece of cake. Also included is an attractive neck strap.

    I installed my DX-6 in the tray and flew an entire weekend with it. Two things I look for when using a transmitter tray is comfort and balance. I was pleased that this tray had both. I have used trays in the past, that were top heavy with short bolts and tipped the radio down. This tray held the radio perpendicular to me and that is where I want it. The neck strap is wide enough that it does not cause any discomfort and seems to be well sewn to hold up over time.

    The Transmitter Tray by Madison Components is a quality product that has had some thought put into it's design. It has everything that I look for in a good tray and have my DX-6 parked on there permanently. Side rests and harnesses are avaiable, check www.qualityrcproducts.com for more details.
