    Yep... Mike is correct.. its all about the numbers... we ARE the LOWEST market share in the RC industry. Speaking with futaba as much as I have over the years they DO understand this but in the end.. the numbers have to work. Having said this.. the current radio systems DO WORK in model...

    maybe I should have shared this before. this is the install in my Sport 40.. the battery pack is below the RX and GPS. The small block near the servos is a chunk of foam with some vetrap on it as a filler block. Questions please ask. Grim
