I had a plane, till i crashed it and didn't want to spend money on fixing it. I still use my RC car though, for anyone who does that I have a RC10 T3 pretty much loaded out. Sprint what kind of car you usin?
HPI RS4 with full ball bearings, Honda Accord body, but the rest is stock. As far as my plane; I have a Great Planes Corsair that runs on a O.S. .46 engine and 5 channel remote.
In the near future I plan to get a foam, electric powered A-10 Warthog.
Frequencies are numbered (I was number 31). This is done so people do not use the same frequency and crash your plane. My reciever did not have a number on it; your best way to check is to charge everything up and test it.
Buy an electric start - hand propping is not a great idea. And if you are infront of the aircraft you turn it counter clockwise.
My last peice of advise - they are harder to fly then you think - get someone who knows how to fly them to help you until you have mastered.
well, I bought a new crystal to match my tx and all is well. Thanks for the input all. Got the engine fired up with the chicken stick as well, purrs like a kitten. FYI if you didnt know this already, dont buy stuff on ebay. I bought the tx there, and the guy claimed it was new, but the battery shorted out when I plugged it in, the rx had the wrong crystal, and it had no servo mounting tray or anything. So I basically poured 60 in ontop of what I spent on the auction. Should have bought new. Anyway, going flying on thursday....thanks again.
