Jack you base quality on price. Let me tell you the mark up on RC stuff is ridiculous. I can go buy a brand new Bombardier 800 twin for $1900. How much did you pay for your 175cc and 190cc MVVS?? Price is a marketing scheme in the RC world. Mark a high price the suckers will roll in.

Wow to much rant for the morning
Brad, they do have insane programming. I have a friend that has a 14SG...I hate the way you have to go through the programming and as ugly as they come....the TX is not near as good a quality inside and out as the hogher end stuff.

Does it really matter what I paid Brad. I'm happy and know that it's leaps and bounds better quality than the other stuff I talk about.

Do you for one second think I don't know about mark up Brad....it's a hobby and price is always set to what they think the consumer will pay no matter what the hobby....is my new sled worth $16000????....Are my new work boots worth $399.....is the new Harley I'm looking at worth $45500..is the Goldwing I own worth $30000.....relax Brad

But most of all....I ruffled some feathers....have a great day Brad....I know I will..I.love Futaba...just invested another $2500 into your favorite brand.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Is it really a 28channel or is that just marketing ???

I've always been a JR fan!! Love the Futaba's and switched from JR because of that whicked SBUS (which I see others are catching up on finally!!) But had I not bought the Futaba, I'd be running a Jeti right now. I love the feel of them and makes things feel so natural. And they're the only company that has figured out the proper screen placement, LOL!

My vote is Jeti,

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

The new JR 28x is running an Android opperating system and have knocked off FUtaba with their X-Bus sytem which components look suspiciously like FUtaba's.

Did JR take a page from DLE?

Ask my EM brotherin about the JIMSUNG phone I own, running Android!

Da Buy good Chezch radio lyke goood Chezch MVVS!

JETI!

In the barns (2), you shitdisturber! Have you ever seen intense farming? eg, feedlot for cattle. Hog operation?
Lots of our photo's have the roof of the west barn, which we try to avoid flying over. Classified as the farmyard.
