I'm a beginner to R/C and confused here (and my Bug plans haven't even arrived yet.) Balsa Products lists the range of the GWS R-4P at 4.8g as 1000 ft. with a 39" antenna and the Hitec Feather at 7.8g as a 1000 ft too. Other than the extra 3 grams what am I missing here? Are the listed ranges not to accurate? -- Thanks Jim Holliman This E-mail address may not be shared with any person or business without the permission of the owner.
