| It seems to have the electronics in it. It has three futaba servos (the | plane resembles a sig kadet in shape)
Well, a Sig Kadet is a good trainer, so ... | The Futaba receiver is FP-R114H. Does anyone have any information on | it?
It's an AM receiver. I believe it's what came with the Attack 4 AM radio, and it's an OK receiver. Not great, but OK for a trainer.
Does it have a `1991' sticker on it, or a gold AMA sticker? We want to make sure it's narrow band. I suspect it is, but they've been around for at least 13 years, so we should check.
It certainly won't work with your Quattro transmitter, but will with an AM transmitter. (I don't think AM radio gear has the positive/negative shift issue.) If you use a buddy box with it, you'll need an AM buddy box if you use that receiver and an AM transmitter.
| The engine is a OS Max FP. Is this a good one? Any comments are | appreciated.
Not a great engine, but not a bad one.
| I paid $25 dollars for the plane and it is in great condition. I | figured it was a good one to train on.
Assuming the equipment all works, you got a great deal. Assuming that all the electronics and the engine are shot, it's still a good deal if the airframe is good.
| I switched the receiver in it and put in a new JR Quattro receiver, | but I get no response. I do not see a battery anywhere, should I | have one to power the receiver?
Yes, you need a battery :)
Four cell NiCd or NiMH. You sure you don't have one lying around? The odds are good that your Quattro radio came with one, or at least a holder for 4 AA cells. (Which I wouldn't suggest flying with, but it's OK for testing.)
