Did that little Pee Wee have enough power to fly the "Dick's Dream"?

Yep Rodair, I have 2 flying now. Great little units. You have to watch the transmitter plastic sometimes because of UV cracking. How much of the flight gear do you have? Interested in possibly swapping them for something? Let me know. Here is one of our Wee Sticks with the Mattel in it.

Thanks,

Roger, DUH!! I was not paying attention to the date of the post and did not reconize you. As a matter of fact the Wee Stick pictured has one of your units in it now! Its been a long day. BTW, what else have you been playing with?

Wow, thanks for this post. That was my first radio system, and last for over 20 years until I got back into the RC hobby. Thanks you for posting that picture![8D]
