Plantraco DSP4-SC Receiver with ESC Plantraco DSP4-SC Receiver with ESC
By Geoffrey Smith
The Plantraco DSP4-SC Micro Receiver with Electronic Speed Control grabbed my interest for that fact that I could get a receiver and electronic speed control as one unit for a very reasonable price. Traditionally, electronic speed controls and receivers for brushed motors are sold separately, and the Plantraco DSP4-SC promises to deliver as good, if not better than some of the less expensive separately sold electronic speed controls and receivers.

G-Nat Review G-Nat Review
By Martin Hunter
Sport flying - a style of flying that can be at the same time intense and relaxing. What makes for a good sport flyer? I like a combination of stability, predictability, and maneuverability. In my eyes, the G-Nat hits on all marks. Combining the grace of a flowing low wing design with proven aerodynamics, the G-Nat is one fun flyer!

Dynamic Review Dynamic Review
By Andrew Willetts
The Dynamic is postitioned by Hobby Lobby as a "Hotliner". Most of us think of a sailplane-like model, with a wing that is both fast and strong. The Dynamic, however, is more of a "Sports-Hotliner" - being a traditional, low-wing style, including landing gear, but having a beautiful, straight, double-tapered semi-symetrical wing that would not be out of place on any sailplane-style hotliner!

Tracker II Computer Radio Tracker II Computer Radio
By Don Sims
If you fly electric planes, then more than likely you have some of the same radio problems that I have. One problem is too many planes for the memory slots in most computer radios. Another issue that you might have is not having frequencies to fly on at your local field or when you travel to Fly-Ins. Or perhaps you've purchased some bargain used receivers and they have different crystals or are on different shifts from your current radio.
