Continuation of my FX-61 Phantom build configuration. (this part has the BoM at the end)

The other wing is just stock. Look at that horrible stock servo, it’s transparency only serves to taunt me by showing the horrible plastic gears that are dying to eat each other to bits. I would like to change them ASAP – safety-wise I really think they are the…

Hi Hamish,
the system we use in Denmark is developed by the German company GRAW. They use 401 Mhz digital FM. The data is easy to get from a cheap 100$ scanner and send to your soundcard on your PC. You can find more informatione here : http://www.coaa.co.uk/sondemonitor.htm
Best regards
