Sure, during flight training you said "if your lookin' at the Tx, you haven't played with it enough while your plane is on the ground".....

I'll have to have her sexy voice tell me whats going on!

I agree with the not lookin' at the Tx, but I sure felt the left boot of yours gettin' lighter when I didn't initiate a turn with enough rudder!

The thing I always wondered is why any Tx manufacturer would program any Tx/Rx to go to last position in the event of the failsafe kicking in, why not program it to go to neutral on the control surfaces and low idle! Engineers!
can't you set it (failsafe) to anything you want like JR allows you to?

So I will accept your young comment. Young, and polite. That's me.
