Yes it was a good price.had that controller on my fc40 then when I received my vision 2 it came with the other controller that had no tilt wheel and had to use as batteries so I swapped controllers now I have had issues using the level in the back very hard to keep from moving to far up and down never had problem when I was using the upgraded controller that's why I am getting another upgraded controller

Hopefully someone that used one will chime in mark as I have not. All I ever have used since I did the TX mod was the FPVLR ones and the itelite
one . I did try some rubber ducky ones just to see a little but never could match those from Tony so that's all I got for ya buddy !
I got a box full of stuff I have tried over the last year and didn't care for and most likely will have another one this time next year :eek:
Be nice if more than me had one of these here as me have a yard sale !! ;)

im hacking my extender up right now. aren't the antennas in the craft LHCP? that's important when looking at cloverleafs and etc.
Im making a 3 turn LHCP helical and haven't decided if I will buy a patch or make a crosshair for the other output yet - but ya
