Thanks airwave, aileron stick to the low wing as its reversed. Nice tip - Cheers! I have had a look at the spec of the 9X and read a few reviews, no instruction booklet etc - could be a chaotic for a newbie, also on B/O. I like the price looks like allot of bang for your buck!

Ponty - see if you can pick up a 2nd hand Futaba 6EX 2.4 ghz TX on trademe and use it with the Orange FAAST receivers available from Hobby King. This will do you for a few years while you get into the R/C sport. Then you will be able to make a decision whether to upgrade later.

I picked one up for $80 NZD about 18 months ago and now have two - one for fixed wing and one for helis. They have a good resell value as well.

Very easy to set up, as decent manual plus all the expo & dual rate adjustments you will need for learning.
Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes & dreams.
