No way, after a few glitch crashes with my original JR radio, going to Spektrum was the best swap I have made.

Never had a problem with it. I hear more bad about 2.4. I may never switch.

"just" went 2.4 last year and still use 72...I don't see it as "going back". Don't really care which one I fly as long as the radio is a good radio

I just love not having to go back to the frequency board to get a clip so that no one flys on your channel. haha. don't miss those days.

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

Never going back.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.

Anyone that has attended one of the large fun flys (such as IRCHA) when 72 MHz was all we had remembers the long waiting times to get a frequency pin to fly. Those days are gone thanks to 2.4.

Nope, not going back

My dad was telling me about those 72 hrz days. Oh the stories he went on about how he had to walk uphill both ways in the dead of winter to get to the flying field with nothing to keep warm but a couple of hot potatoes that he kept in his pockets which were also his lunch!

Maybe us newcomers have it too easy... I hear they didn't even have Gyros!
