As per title beware if you go back to 35 meg after long use of 2.4Ghz. That shiny thing that lives in the top of the 35 megTX has to be pulled out :shock:. Guess how i know/remembered !! Everyone around never noticed either. Simple mistake , resulting in a  smashed model . An expensive way to range check the 35 meg radio and might have got away with it if model had been trimmed 00ps.

Be careful not to fall in the hole in the field , its sort of cowling shaped !

I didn't know what to do first ? go pick up the bits or check out bill as he as laughing so much he couldn't get his breathe , and it was HIS model !

it was never a good model, I did too many things wrong in the build. it looked ok, but didn't fly. Phil really did me a favour because there were items in it that I needed for another model, so he saved me about £50. and it did look funny, the look on Phil's face.

it really didn't worry me in the least, they are only wooden toys after all, Phil was probably more stressed out than I was.
