I am 77 years old. Built my first flying model in 1947. Started in RC in the very early 60's. The radio was single channel with 2 metal servos. The transmitter had 1 button and no trims. You had to click for left and right in sequence and a quick beep would go from full to idle throttle or back depending on throttle position. My first 4 channel was a Controlair in the early 60's, then on to EK Logitrol, then Futaba. Retired in 2000 as an A&P Mechanic.
