At least one... :) I know folks that have both. There are pro's and con's on both, but they are subtle. Watch them both fly and talk to the pilots and get their impressions. The V4 is load sharing,...

A field that I used to fly at has known 2.4 gHz signals for watering system control. It was probably responsible for my losing a 2 meter pattern plane (not s-bus) a few weeks ago. I wonder if these...

Can't beat a Suburban for hauling pattern planes. On contest day, I take two 2 meter pattern planes and all associated gear like a pop up, cooler, tent, table, chair, etc. In a pinch, I can fit 3.

Thanks for your reply, Brenner. If I recall, it seems more like a resonance. That was my first thought. Only just above idle, then transitions thru the wobble and smooths out. I'll do the prop check...
