Does anyone have one or more recommendation(s) for a transmitter / flight pack for 1/2A planes? Used to be called "micro flight pack" years ago and perhaps still so.

Bernie if you mean the radio and receiver I am a satisfied user of Futaba 2.4 GHz radio and micro receivers. If you mean the batteries my best reliable pack is 4 pieces of rechargeable AAA size Eneloop batteries soldered into a 4.8 Volts 800mAh pack. Light and powerful for a full days flight.

I use a Spektrum DSMX 2.4g transmitter:


OrangeRx R410X
- DSM2 DSMX 4Ch/6CH PWM/CPPM 2.4Ghz RX
- Dual Antenna
- 2.7 Grams
- Wide input voltage: 3.7~9.6V
- Compact design  (great for TD .020 and up)

Nicads, Nimh, Lipo all discharge but LiFe cells do not they hold there peak charge for weeks
no need to top them off if charged a week before actually flying.

I use the 200mah and 300mah with good success
Servos depend of engine and plane size.

Setup for a TD .010 is a different animal using smaller specialized gear for best results.

Recommendation for 1/2A TX / RX set S-l16014


Lastly here is a size comparison for the different engine displacements the 700mah battery shown is good for 5ch
setup's using thirsty high torque servos, for most TD .15 size 4ch flying 500mah is enough.

I have had no problems with Lemon RX receivers with my Spektrum transmitter. The flight stabilization receiver has better support than OrangeRX, albeit through RCGroups for documentation.

I also use FrSky which are fantastic. The radio is a little daunting to set up, especially for someone who struggles with programming and software logic, but the capabilities are amazing especially at the price.

There are enough micro-receivers that are shrink wrapped instead of in a bulky plastic housings from all major manufacturers that finding something lightweight and high quality is not hard.

With glow engines vibration control is somewhat more important than with electric. The receiver should be fastened securely to the airframe with some type of padding. Velcro seems to be adequate, although some recommend using more vibration isolation than just some Velcro. As with all active systems there are bad combinations but the lightweight nature of the new electronics prevent many problems.

Bernie

Is this a one time thing for a customer, or a thought on having the "Flight" package for general sale?

If the latter...get the recommendations here and on RC Groups...most will say the Frsky, Turnigy, Orange, Tactic very low end stuff is adaquat for 1/2a

once decided on the package or individual components do the search for them first on Hobby King for typical prices----- then search On AliBaba or Banggood....both have an amazing array of "direct from factory" and very low prices--- but absolute horrid customer support, and warranty is basically worthless

I know on AliBabba, if you want to do a bulk purchase they have even steeper discounts but when I inquired, the number of units to get the deep discount was way more than I needed

Also IF for general sale on your site... because there are so many low end very inexpensive types, and Hobby King is doing a lot better at warehouses in the USA and many countries... pricing for a good or fair ROI is going to come with a lot of price competition
