Default 8fg piloting a full scale Boeing 727

If any of you watch the Discovery Channel Curiosity series tonight they showed a Boeing 727 being flown by a Futaba 8fg to intentionally crash the plane for survivability research it was a pretty cool setup. I guess when if comes to flying/crashing a $450,000 plane futaba is the radio of choice. Take that Spektrum j/k

I think I got that episode recorded but haven't watched it yet. Didn't know they used a 8FG. Now I'll have to watch it!

If all they wanted to do was blow it up, they could've saved a lot of time and expense by just strapping a CC 120HV to the front of it.

I switched from spectrum to the 8fg , glad i did , great radio.

The preperation into that crash took 4 years and 4 million dollars to pull off.

I bet they put alot of thought into the radio choice.

I bought a logo 800 XXtreme and was nervious running on jr/spec

When I crash my planes its always different what's broke.

So shall we let the team know they need MORE of this kind of tests to get scientific results.
