Sorry if I mislead anyone. Those were not my radios. They had a huge display of vintage radios at the AMA Expo last weekend. -Steve

I realized when looking through some photos of the AMA expo last night that those were not your radios. Here is a picture of the vintage radio display which Mark Ryder took:

It's amazing how far technology has come.

This is a vintage radio I aquired 20+ years ago. The freq is 27.045. I have never used it. I don't know if it is a 5 channel or if the switch on the top was a trainer switch. It does have a six pin socket on the bottom of the transmitter seperate from the charge jack.

Edit I just looked at it again, both sockets on the bottom go to the battery. The socket on the left bottom side is a 110 volt charge input and the one on the right must be for a low voltage dc charger. That along with the model number of KPT-5 makes me belive it is a five channel.

I would be willing to bet that some of that "vintage" equipment is older than me

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

that Kraft is a 4 channel unless the toggle switch on top has no spring detent. If it does, then it's a trainer switch (4 channel). If it does not, then that switch served as a retract channel. My dad and I were on an RC show team in the 70's and Kraft was our main sponsor. For their time, they were pretty much the Caddy of radios. My last Kraft (about '79 or so) was a single stick 5 channel.
