A Tip worth sharing!

Hi Guys;

I've yet to use one of these myself, but I think this Safety tip regarding the TransMitts or similar is worth sharing. I'd probably be the first to much this up Hope it saves someone some trouble.

Just a safety note. I

If you use a mitt that covers the transmitter so that you can go without
gloves, follow this safety tip. Loop a #64 rubber band around the left side
of the transmitter carrying handle. Then loop another #64 band to extend the
first one. Take the length of rubber down the back of the transmitter and
bring it under the bottom and loop it over the left hand (throttle) stick so
that the throttle is held firmly in the idle position. Flip the band off the
throttle once you are safely inside the mitt. It is all too easy to
accidentally hit that throttle stick into full throttle while you are
struggling to get into the mitt - your colleagues will not like a runaway
