So I have been out of the hobby for a 4 years or so since our field Bay Side RC was closed to make a mass transit station. I joined a new field in Livermore and have maintained my membership and AMA for the sake of the hobby.
Well my son being 14 and into nothing but video games I decided I need to force a change. I purchased 2 identical quadcopters with gps and fpv setups in hopes we can both drag each other to the field.
I used that as an excuse to visit the Mikado USA site for their bf deal. Picked up a V-bar control, Neo, and 690SX. Then went on over to the ExperienceRC site to pickup the rest of the parts for the build less speed controller since it was out of stock.
I been through all the JR 8103's, 9303's and DX7 and 2 years ago I bought a new JR 11x (apparently for no reason, never had a flight on it). I really look forward to this V-Bar control in hopes it will make setup easy and get to the field asap. Also picked up a gen2 DX7 for some of my old MinAir flybar machines.
