I am tired of trying to balance my radio while flying so I need one of those adapter things what is the best one and where should I go to get it. I have seen a few different designs are any of them better than others?

and the blonde said "RECTUM, Hell damn near killed em!!"

I have the G-Force and hate it, Hard to use the power switch. Someone posted one that was nice and funcional and I haven't been able to find it.

I use the Spektrum Neck Strap adapter. Overall I love the balance, but it sticks up and makes for just a little more difficult putting the Tx in a case. HeliProz has it here, and I am sure other dealers have them as well so look around.

Here is Ron Lund showing how the balance works.

I don't endorse any dealer with this postings, just for ease of posting.

Gravity is what makes flying so much fun!

On the Spektrum adapter. I have the small 12X one and it doesn't suite my taste.

Why use lighter fluid when gasoline works sooo much better! | http://www.newportnewsrc.org/

Does the 12x need to be balanced? Or is it balanced out of the box?

Spektrum balancer
Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic. but here is my 12X balanced with the Spektrum unit.

Here it is with the Standard Balancer. It tilts back a little more and it is not any more adjustable. I like my radio to tilt a little forward.

I use the balancer from JR on both my X9303 and my DX7. Seems to work ok.

The best one I have seen and use, is made by RJX.
It is CNC, has multiple strap mounting holes, and various anodized colors.
It also swings out of the way sideways on my Futaba version.
Pivots on the strap mount of the TX.
Never/cant get in the way of the switch.

Cant remember if the Spektrum version does as well.
No idea where you will get them in the USA, but you can contact RJX direct for anything they sell.

For the love of the hobby

Forget about the adapter and checkout this website. http://www.rcamodels.com I have both versions pinch and thumb and this tray just rocks! I used a neck strap for years. Never could get it to stay straight. Check it out.
