Do you still have your old Isotronics radio?
My first radio, my first kit radio, my first nicad cycler.
Finally sold the Isopacer two years ago when I went electric.

I wish today's radios were more modular. If I want a dual throttle gimbal on one side and all flight mode switches on the other... then I should be able to plug that in. Now, I know Futaba has some interchangeable switches, but it's somewhat quiet compared to the radical idea I would love to see. This opens all those old questions about why we don't see European style radio equipment over here. I kinda like the tray layout somewhat. Then the radio doesn't have to place so much importance on how the pilot will hold it when trying to deploy the flaps.
I just realized something... why do we call our radios ..."radios"? I keep telling myself we only use transmitters and receivers.
