RE: Hyundai vs. Mercedes C230
It's 2.3 liters hence the 230 designation in the old ones,the new one is 1.8l.I think they would be close but merc would win.

RE: Screwed by HobbyKing
I to have many orders with HK, no problems what so ever. They carry a wide margin of products from cheap no names to name branded, at discount prices. And yes 95% of hobby merchandise comes from China, any American company that tries to make a high priced quality product won't succeed, because people aren't willing to pony up the extra cash, with a few exceptions of course.

RE: LETS SAVE SIG BEFORE THEY GET SWALLOWED BY THE BIG TWO!!!
I love my kavalier also.Built this one as 1200 watt electric. You can't get this kind of a sense of accomplishment from an arf, yes it takes longer and takes practice but we end up with a one of a kind special airplane.

RE: 72 mhz still ok?
One issue i see with 2.4 is that it's a gold mine for r/c companys. Many thousands of perfectly working 72 systems are replaced with 2.4.One great leap with 2.4 is the telemetry functions built into the systems, you have thousands of flyers who must have every sensor,gps, speed,alt,temp gadget and that goes right into the goldmine, market driven economics at work! I fly 72 with multiplex evo 9, with senth, scanner modual, with this system it is impossible to shoot someone down if the warnings are followed. i fly 15 models on ch 44 with single conversion in small planes and dual conversion in large planes, and never had a radio related crash, [knock on wood] in 225 hours of operation! Hitec has discontinued 5 72 mhz receivers and 2 flight packs, and some transmitters. Must be because of reduced demand. http://www.hitecrcd.com/products/aircraft-radios-receivers-and-accesories/discontinued-aircraft/index.html
