The New T-IFO From WildRC The New T-IFO From WildRC
By Joe Howard
After I built my Mini Trainer IFO from scratch, I received an email from Dan Kreigh congratulating me on my build. He stated he had thought about coming out with a new smaller trainer than his MK3 sized T-IFO, but really didnít have the time to do it. So it came as a surprise when I received the newly designed first off the line T-IFO kit from Dan!
