Great Planes Kit I built a few years ago. Wingspan is 100", length is 85". DLE 100 that is still pretty fresh. High torque servo's, smoke pump, JR receiver. Never crashed this big monster and had a heck of a lot of fun with it for a couple summers. First and only plane I ever managed to do a knife edge loop with (I'm more of a scale guy). I would like to keep it but i need to raise funds for a new transmitter (see my forum thread about my JR 9303 no longer binding). Would trade for a Spekrum or JR 2.4 transmitter with at least 9 channels. Don't want to seperate for parts or ship.

Last photo is of the radio I am wanting to buy with money from the sale of this plane.

Re: Great Planes Giant Extra


Are you sure the engine is not a DLE 111 I don't remember DLE making a 100. DL made the 100 as far as I can recall and yours is clearly marked DLE .

Re: Great Planes Giant Extra


Look into the Horus - much more future-ready than a Spectrum!

I've been a die-hard Futaba guy for 35 years.
Now I am a Horus X10S guy and there's no looking back!!

Hello John.
Never heard of a Horus X10S. Who sells this and is there a website so I can check it out?
Thanks,
Doug

Re: Great Planes Giant Extra


I have 7 other planes all of which have JR or Spektrum Rx's. Too expensive to switch now.

Re: Great Planes Giant Extra


They're made by FrSky. It's a radio with high end hardware. Website: FrSky.com

I was half kidding though.
I love the radio, no doubts. Enough to drop a 35-year loyalty to Futaba.

They're not for everybody though. Programming flexibility and simplicity is awesome.
They have a simple and effective telemetry protocol called "Smart Port" that is so simple to use it's scary.
Their rx's, sensors, etc are inexpensive and reliable. To get Horus tx quality in the big brands will cost north of $1000, while these sell for half that.

HOWEVER, documentation supplied with their products is not just useless, it's pretty much non-existent.
Information and instructions for their gear can be found with extensive web searching and forum scouring, if you don't mind the time and energy it takes to find it.

They also have a tendency to release products that have not been thoroughly tested, though they do usually address issues quickly.

In short, this is definitely an up and coming quality product line, but it can be frustrating getting past the growing pains.

Anyway, if you do a little research on them, you'll find lots of chatter about them.

Sorry, I probably shouldn't have opened this can of worms on you! (Lol)

Cheers
