Ok, so I've had the RTF Champ for over a year and have only used it maybe a handful of times. I went to get it out recently and couldn't get the plane to bind to the receiver. I took it to a local hobby shop and determined it is the transmitter inside the plane that's no longer working.... We tested this by binding my transmitter to one of his aircrafts and the same with trying to bind his transmitter to my plane, which still didn't work.

Now, I asked them what I could do and they said to get a bind and fly kit because the cost of a new transmitter is over half of what I paid for the entire RTF Champ.... What would some of you guys do at this point. I hate to trash a plane that to me still works. Is it worth it to maybe buy a new transmitter and maybe upgrade to a brushless motor to make it more worthwhile?? I'm just looking for ideas that will basically save the plane. Thanks

it is the receiver in the plane..the transmiter is the hand held box you fly with ...the reciever boards on those are a bit expensive..i would go onto RCGroups.com and see if someone is selling a used one...or will part out a plane....worth a shot at least....

look in this forum...

I guess I could have tried that.......I have it with me at work today and will try that. If not, I'm not going to pay $50 for a new fuselage when I can buy the entire setup for $89.....I'm thinking about going to my local hobby shop and getting a BNF parkzone P-51 Mustang for roughly the same price. Thanks
