    Hey Bob,
    the helis require 2 joysticks to be used but with a car .
    The cars use 2 channels so 1 joystick will work fine, but with an airplane you need at least 3 channels unless you have a little better radio with mixing that will mix a V tail plane to act as the rudder and elevator and ailerons on one stick.But would need 2 sticks unless you had a sail plane without throttle, then would use a high start to launch.(long rubber band)
    Are you limited to use of on hand or can you use both?
    Most anything can be done anymore with the new radio equipment out there...
    Definatly check with a local club or hobby shop for people in your area they will help you out a lot, most hobby guys will go way out of their way to help a fellow RCer.

    This is one of my helicopters. It is a Thunder Tiger Mini Titan E325 SE, same class as the Trex 450. I also have 2 TT Raptor 90 SE nitro helis.

    Nice 450 there TW,
    also the 90s are great helis,
    I am talking to the local civic center that was just recently finished in our area , (Port Saint Lucie , florida) And trying to get permission to use the basketball court for a few local guys to fly Mini helis and foamies inside with AC and 30 foot ceilings, padded walls and sort of a soft floor in there too..I flew a few batteries yesterday with my CX2, man is that great to fly in such a nice indoor area with AC and night time as well..
    The courts are open all day and ussually no one is ever there except on weekends and after school is out so I will be getting to fly during the week when I have time..
    Now I want to get one of the little foamies like I posted on an earlier post...

    Real high-tech...





    The innerds... I was thinking of moving to 4S as right now I'm gearing limited (hard to find a 1/8 shaft 48P pinion in the size I need), but since things are known to go airborne above 80mph, I think I'll just keep it as-is and keep it sort-of sane.
