    I think Star Wars has to get it. It was a true 'holy shit' game of the first order. The others are all great games, but Star Wars was still really popular in arcades 10 years after it was first...

    T2 by a lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng chalk. Because it's still a great movie and franchise. And in my opinion is still the most fun pinball ever.

    I think you'll need those options too. A lot of planes are sold "ready to bind", which is to say you can use your own transmitter with them after you've 'bound' it to the plane (usually just a button...

    I'm coping with 8-10kt gusts on the champ, which I find I deal with by maxing throttle straight into it and pretty much ending up sliding backwards! I even managed to land it vertically yesterday. It...

    I'm going to get one of those - I just watched some videos and it looks nice and stable. My Champ gets blown all over by gusts (but stays in control) so this would be a great option. How much wind do...

    Thanks Scott - my first RC plane.

    I've wanted to get into RC planes since I was a nipper. It was difficult in New Zealand in the 70's though, you couldn't buy a plane off the shelf and I didn't know anyone who had one. So the desire...
