Default What was your first Radio?

Orbit 4 channel reed, bonner servos 2, bonner escapement for throttlel ( a blip down and a blip of left and you got a change only 2 or 3 each flight.high or rubber band was unwound) fox 35 stunt with exaust restrictor for throtle. Veco white cloud for air craft. Sure learned to wiggle your thumbs on those toggle switches. If I recall the tx batteries cost as much as the radio 37volt? times 2plus somthing else. was about 1954 0r 55. If you got one flight and no repairs in a day it was great. Half the time was spent repositioning the radio RX so the reeds did not vibrate.
