CURRICULUM CHANGES APPLICABLE TO THE CLASSES OF 2011 AND BEYOND
THERE IS NOW A GREATER FLEXIBILITY IN TAKING ECE COURSES. STUDENTS WHO HAVE AP CREDITS IN CALCULUS, OR WHO ARE UNSURE OF THEIR MAJORS, SHOULD CONSULT WITH THEIR ADVISOR IN DESIGNING A SUITABLE SELECTION OF COURSES. ECE 114 HAS BEEN REPLACED WITH CSC 160 ECE101 IS REPLACED WITH ANY EAS 1XX COURSE. NOTE: IF ECE 140 OR EAS 1XX IS NOT TAKEN, THEN A 200 LEVEL TECHNICAL COURSE MUST BE TAKEN SOMETIME IN THE JUNIOR OR SENIOR YEAR.
Undergraduate Program Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide our students with the knowledge and skills that will enable them to build productive careers in the field of Electrical and Computer Engineering. We will teach our students the principles and good practices of modern basic and applied electrical and computer engineering. We will train them to solve problems systematically, yet to think creatively, and we will develop in them an awareness of the role of engineering in modern society. Program Objectives 1. The intellectual breadth and critical reasoning skills to enable them to successfully pursue diverse career paths, both within the engineering profession and in other areas, such as law, medicine, and business. 2. The skills to work productively in collaborative environments. 3. The ability to communicate effectively both within the technical community and with the public at large. 4. Enthusiasm for creativity, research, and lifelong inquiry. 5. Appreciation of the social impacts of engineering and the need to maintain the highest ethical standards in the practice of their chosen profession. Program Educational Outcomes Students will acquire knowledge and skill in the mathematics underlying electrical and computer engineering analysis and design, including calculus, linear algebra, discrete mathematics, and probability. Students will develop a firm foundation in the physical sciences underlying electrical and computer engineering analysis and design, including fundamental physics and electricity and magnetism. In recognition of the broad choice of career paths within ECE and the societal impact of engineering, students will obtain knowledge of modern physics or other sciences such as biology, chemistry, or environmental science. Students will be able to use the tools of Electrical and Computer Engineering, including computer simulation, design and analysis software, and laboratory measurement equipment. Students will be able to design and conduct experiments, and analyze and correctly interpret data. Students will gain a sufficient foundation in the fundamental areas of electrical and computer engineering to understand problems in a broad context. These fundamental areas include: circuits and systems, electromagnetics, microelectronics, digital systems, computer architecture, signals and communications. Students will have the in-depth training in at least one fundamental ECE area to conduct detailed design and analysis and will develop the skills to bring a design project to successful completion. Students will gain the skills and general engineering knowledge necessary to function in an engineering project team. Students will be exposed to the issues of professionalism and ethical responsibility through examples. Students will be able to communicate effectively with their peers and the public in written, oral, and graphical forms. Students will start to understand the societal context and impact of engineering. Students will learn to appreciate the value of the creation and dissemination of new engineering knowledge and the need to engage in life-long learning. Students will broaden their education through exposure to the humanities and/or social sciences.
This Guide supplements information found in the 2009-2011 Undergraduate Bulletin of the University of Rochester for the Electrical and Computer Engineering degree program in the Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. http://www.rochester.edu/bulletin/index.html. To plan a program of study meeting departmental requirements and satisfying one's objectives, each student must remain aware of applicable curricular requirements. When requirements are changed, the Department is obligated to communicate these changes to students through letters, announcements, and/or meetings. It is the student's obligation to read and study this Curriculum Guide, to attend announced class meetings, and to meet with his or her advisor regularly.
ABET PROGRAM ACCREDITATION
In the State of New York, engineering degrees must be registered for either professional or general purposes. All degrees conferred by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Rochester are registered for professional purposes. In contrast, all degrees granted through the Interdepartmental Program are registered for general purposes. The State will automatically register an engineering degree program for professional purposes if it is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). The current ABET accreditation criteria require that each electrical and computer engineering student complete a curriculum with the following minimum content: (1) (2) (3) Humanities & Social Science Mathematics & Basic Science Engineering Science and Design 1/2 year 1 year 1 1/2 year (16 credit hours) (32 credit hours) (48 credit hours)
In the item (3) above, students should strive to achieve at least 1 year (32 credit hours) of Engineering Science and at least 1/2 year (16 credit hours) of Engineering Design content. Further, the program must culminate in a meaningful, major design experience. The required courses in the ECE curriculum listed below guarantee satisfaction of ABET accreditation requirements.
The main difference between professional and general degrees is that students with the professional degree may sit for part A of the Professional Engineering Examination, also known as the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) examination. This examination on fundamentals of engineering and science is the first step toward registration as a professional engineer. All ECE students should consider taking the FE examination in the spring of their senior year. Professional registration brings certain recognized benefits. Furthermore, entry-level engineering jobs with the State of New York, as well as many junior level federal positions, require successful completion of the FE. In addition, private corporations such as Kodak and Xerox require a significant number of professionally registered engineers. Because the path that an engineer's career is likely to take is difficult to predict, the department encourages all students to sit for the FE examination.

Plus the following: - 1 ECE Advanced Elective course (if ECE140 or EAS1XX not taken) - Free electives to complete the balance of 128 credit hours. A total of 12 ECE courses, CSC 160, ECE 349, ECE 398 and ECE 399 are required for graduation. ECE 399 should be taken in the junior year and ECE 398 must be satisfactorily completed, usually in the Fall term of the Senior year, prior to undertaking ECE 349 - Capstone Design course.
Acceptable alternative mathematics sequences: Honors math Sequence: MTH 171, 172, 173, 174, is perfectly appropriate for those with adequate mathematics background. The sequence MTH 141, 142, 143, 165, 164; is acceptable, HOWEVER, it is best to take MTH143 or an equivalent in the SUMMER between the 1st and 2nd years, in order to get back in sequence. Consult with your faculty and administrator to arrange your best sequence. Two physics courses, PHY 121 and PHY 122, are required of all ECE majors. In addition, it is strongly recommended that ECE students also complete PHY123. However selected other courses in natural science from among AST, BCS, BIO, CHM, EES, and PHY may also satisfy the ECE program's Natural Science requirement. Students must check with the ECE department undergraduate coordinator prior to taking any such course to confirm that the course will satisfy the ECE Natural Science requirement. In the ECE program a total of five courses in the humanities and social sciences is required. Three of these courses must constitute an approved Cluster in Humanities or Social Sciences and must be passed with a 2.0 average or better. See the Cluster Search Engine (http://www.rochester.edu/College/CCAS/clusters) and descriptions of clusters in the undergraduate bulletin. ECE 270 OR MTH 201, "Introduction to Probability is required for all ECE majors. Students should normally take MTH 201 concurrently with ECE 241 but in any case MTH201 must be taken prior to taking ECE 242. For graduation, electrical and computer engineering majors must achieve a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 2.0 in the twelve required ECE core courses: specifically ECE 111, 112, 113, 200, 216, 221, 222, 230, 241, 242 and CSC160. In addition, 128 total credits are required for graduation with an overall cumulative grade point average of 2.0.
Students wishing to major in Electrical and Computer Engineering must file a completed "ECE Curriculum Planning Form" (See Appendix 1), along with the Concentration Approval Form, ordinarily during the fourth semester of study. This form constitutes application to the upper-division ECE program. The minimum requirements for admission to the ECE program are completion of the following: (no student may be admitted to the major if on Academic Probation in the College) 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. ECE 111, 112, 113 and CSC 160 with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.3 in these four courses MTH161, 162, 165, 164 and 165 or the equivalent mathematics sequence PHY121, 122, and one other PHY or natural science course (PHY123 recommended) University primary writing requirement, usually satisfied by taking WRT 105 A minimum GPA of 2.0 in all courses completed to date.
A submitted plan, though never binding, is very useful in helping students to focus their interests within the field of electrical and computer engineering. Before preparing and submitting a course plan, each student should study available written material and then discuss the alternatives fully with his or her faculty advisor or with other faculty. The Curriculum Planning Form, approved by the students faculty advisor, will then be attached to a Concentration Approval form and submitted to the Dean of the Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Under special circumstances, such as transfer from another institution or a change of intended major in the early years of study, students may not complete all the requirements for admission by the end of the sophomore year. Such circumstances might include lacking one of the three required ECE or seven freshmansophomore courses in mathematics, physics, and physical sciences. Students in such a situation may qualify for conditional admission by submitting a form, available from the Undergraduate Coordinator in the ECE Office, to the ECE Undergraduate Committee along with an up-to-date ECE Curriculum Planning Form. The application must present a realistic plan, approved by the students advisor, for completion of all ECE program admission requirements within one year. Failure to meet the requirements within one year will result in removal from the major. Only the Administrative Committee of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences can make exceptions from the general degree requirements published in the Official Bulletin of the University. Petition forms for Administrative Committee consideration may also be obtained from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Office.
ECE ADVANCED ELECTIVE AND CAPSTONE DESIGN
In planning a program of study each student must choose one advanced ECE elective course and the capstone design sequence ECE 399, 398, and 349. This is the minimum requirement and students are encouraged to take as many advanced electives as they may fit into their schedule. This requirement assures that all majors devote some of their advanced level course-work to a specialization within ECE leading to a design project. In the design sequence, students will define their design project in consultation and with the approval of ECE faculty members.
A listing of advanced electives for the various areas of specialization are given below. Multiple advanced electives are listed for most areas; please consult with your ECE advisor to make appropriate course selections. Refer to the undergraduate bulletin for course descriptions. AREA Signals and Communications VLSI and Electronics Computer Engineering Waves, Fields and Devices ADVANCED ELECTIVES 244, 245, 246 261, 223, 234, 235, 266 CAPSTONE DESIGN 349 349
ECE students interested in preparing for medical school are urged to obtain related materials from the Health Professions Advisor at the Center for Academic Support, Lattimore 312. It is essential that such students begin program planning very early and involve both their ECE advisor and the Health Professions Advisor. Some of the courses usually required for admission to medical school are readily accommodated within the BS ECE curricular requirements. These include two semesters of general physics, two semesters of general chemistry, two semesters of math, and two semesters of English. (The English requirement is accommodated by using one of the five H&SS courses over and above the University Primary Writing requirement.) Note that a laboratory in physics is usually required for medical school admission, although not for the ECE program. Only medical schools may decide whether ECE labs can be substituted. Additional requirements for medical school admission include a year of biology with labs and a year of organic chemistry with labs. To accommodate these courses, an ECE student can use the free electives available in the ECE curriculum. Additional courses can only be accommodated by overloads, by use of summer courses, or by advanced placement credit. Scheduling all of these courses with due regard for prerequisites may be complex and the workload demands strong commitment from the student. Thus, consultation with the Health Professions Advisor in Lattimore Hall and the ECE faculty advisor is essential. Freshman orientation is not too early to begin program planning!
INTERNSHIPS AND PRACTICUM
ECE majors are strongly encouraged to participate in internships with local or nationally based engineering firms. Only in a few cases can internship experiences be used for academic credit. Students who wish to obtain such credit for an internship must obtain prior approval from the ECE Undergraduate Committee. The Engineering Practicum program, supervised jointly by the Edmund A. Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the Career Center, is a way to gain valuable work experience. A student in this program takes one semester and the summer preceding or following to work for a company. Academic credit is not granted, but the work experience and references obtained are valuable in later job searching. Typically graduation is delayed by one semester, but some students with Advanced Placement credit or summer classes can graduate on time. Additional information, including example programs, is available from the Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences office in Lattimore Hall, or from the Career Center.
If a student wishes to take a course at another institution to satisfy an ECE degree requirement, PRIOR APPROVAL is required and proper supporting documentation about the course must be submitted to the ECE Department Undergraduate Coordinator. An "Undergraduate Transfer Credit Approval Form," available in the ECE Office is to be used for this purpose. Students are strongly advised to seek the advice of their advisor before registering for a course at another institution. Completed forms will be forwarded to the Undergraduate Committee for action.
FIVE-YEAR BS/MS PROGRAM
ECE juniors contemplating graduate work should consider the special five-year program offered by the Department. This program provides the advantage of a smooth transition between undergraduate and graduate study. Program enrollment is competitive and students must apply for admission in the spring of their junior year. Successful applicants begin their masters-level study in the Senior year. Through a special program initiated by the Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Science, students who have been formally accepted into the 3/2 program will be granted a 75% tuition scholarship for the fifth year of study (only after the BS degree has been awarded). Students should consult the UR Graduate Studies Official Bulletin found at: (http://www.rochester.edu/GradBulletin/) for the MS degree requirements and they should meet with a faculty member to develop an integrated BS/MS program of study.
CERTIFICATE IN MANAGEMENT STUDIES
Many ECE students choose to pursue the Certificate in Management Studies, which requires 6 courses (see the Undergraduate Bulletin and the Interdepartmental/Social Science Cluster link for more details). With careful planning, it is possible for ECE students to obtain this certificate without overloading.
By College policy, a maximum of two NROTC courses (8 credits) may be taken as free electives toward the 128 credits required for graduation. Additional NROTC courses must be taken as overloads.
UPPER-LEVEL WRITING REQUIREMENT
It is vitally important for all students to be able to communicate effectively in writing. The University's Upper-level Writing Requirement applies to all majors. Within electrical and computer engineering the requirement will be met through writing assignments in ECE 111, 112, 113, and ECE 399. Students who transfer credit for any one or more of these courses from another institution to the UR must consult with the ECE Departments undergraduate coordinator to determine if their program satisfies the requirement.
13) Humanities & Social Science Requirement
All ECE majors must take a minimum of 5 humanities/social science (H&SS) courses. This includes the three courses taken to satisfy the University Cluster requirement. These five courses can be chosen from any recognized Humanities and/or Social Science field listed below. Courses in the business field may not be used to satisfy this requirement. Students also are expected to take some of these courses beyond the introductory
level. Ordinarily, H&SS Clusters will count for three of the five required courses, but if questions arise, students should consult their advisors. Language courses at the 101 level are only accepted when followed by another, more advanced course in the same language. Acceptable Humanities Courses: Any English course except for ENG101 or the course taken to satisfy the university primary writing requirement (usually WRT 105); any course in art or art history, foreign or comparative literature, a foreign language above 101 level, music theory or music history, philosophy, religious studies, or film studies courses cross-listed in a humanities department. Acceptable Social Sciences Courses: Any course in anthropology, economics, history, linguistics, political science, psychology or sociology. Notes: 1) No computer courses offered in humanities or social science fields may be used as a H/SS distribution course. 2) Ordinarily, courses taken at the University of Rochester to meet the 5 course requirement in H&SS are 4 credit hour courses. Consult your advisor concerning 2 or 3 credit courses (including transfer courses). You may need to petition the Undergraduate Committee to use such courses as credit toward the H&SS distribution requirement. The following restriction applies to all courses used to satisfy the distribution requirement: "The Faculty approved the Committee on Educational Policy motion that two 2-credit courses may be combined to fulfill one 4-credit distribution requirement only if both courses are from the same discipline; that two 2-credit courses from different disciplines may be substituted for a 4-credit free elective; and that no more than two courses may be combined to count toward either a distribution requirement or a free elective." From Summary of Minutes, School Faculty Meeting, September 23, 1977.
Natural Science Requirement
Courses that may satisfy the Natural Science requirement are: Physics PHY123 or higher Astronomy AST111 or higher Chemistry CHM103 or higher Biology BIO110 or higher (BIO115 1st Semester Freshman ONLY) Earth & Environmental Science - EES101 or higher Brain & Cognitive Sciences BCS110 or higher

The Department has made it possible for students to participate in a Co-op type program, in which the student takes off 2 semesters to co-op and graduates in 5 years. We propose simply that if a student takes their first Coop in a Spring semester and their second in a Fall semester, then they can be accommodated. Presumably these would not be in successive semesters, and would not be the final semester. We recommend that students co-op in their sixth and ninth semesters:

Are you ready?
Your business in a Recession
Control costs. Maintain liquidity. Be efcient. Cut spending. Key phrases of our current economic times, right? But how far can you go before your business suffers?
The rst reaction is to cut, cut, cut, and advertising is one of the rst things to go, says Wharton marketing Professor Peter Fader, however, as some companies slash their advertising they leave empty spaces in the minds of consumers allowing savvy marketers to take control of their customers. Todays economy provides an unusual opportunity to differentiate your business and stand out from the crowd, says Fader.
A McGraw-Hill Research study examined 600 companies from 1980-1985 and found that those who maintained or increased their advertising during the 1981-1982 recession had sales 256% higher than those who did not continue to advertise.
Advertising in a Recession
Magazine ads are the most effective and efcient ways to boost purchasing decisions. - Marketing Evolution Study, 2008 If you cut advertising it takes 4 or 5 times the amount saved to get the momentum back just to be where you were when you stopped advertising once the economy turns around. (David Sable, COO of Wunderman) Magazines are the most successful medium in engaging consumers to notice advertising - Simmons Multi-Media Engagement Study, 2007
Kalmbach magazines in a Recession
Kalmbach Publishing Co. has been in the magazine publishing business for 75 years. In fact, The Great Depression is the reason the company came to be and had a profound impact on the company values and mission. Today, we remain committed to the hobbies we serve with our magazines, books, Web sites and e-newsletters. More importantly, our customers remain committed to us because of our determination to deliver value and quality 100% of the time.
The success of a business depends on several factors: Quality of service, quality of product, but more than anything else, an overall integrity, honesty, and consistency of policy. Al Kalmbach, founder of Kalmbach Publishing Co.

The consumer success of iHobby Expo and Trainfest (see page 8) has me thinking. Were all familiar with the thought that hobbies are recession proof, which I think we can all agree is pretty much bunk. However, I think we can all agree, especially given the numbers at these shows, that hobbies are recession resistant. folks. Shows are just a start. Its going to take some creative and very bold thinking to figure out how to get the products in front of people who dont know much about them or dont know they exist. This isnt an undertaking that can be left to just one part of the industry, either. Getting the message out is necessarily going to take the combined efforts of all parts manufacturers, distributors and retailers. People have to know about the products; the products have to be available; and people have to know where to get them. Its going to require a complete change in thinking, from We cant do that because its too expensive, to We have to because our survival depends on it. What venues do we use to do this? How Were getting people to the shows. Now how do we capitalize on it? People are looking for inexpensive entertainment. Hobby shows fit the bill perfectly, hence the good attendance. More importantly, lots of people are interested enough in whats at the shows to come. All of this really makes me wonder if were missing a huge opportunity to reach a bigger audience that might be more receptive now to the products in our industry than it has been in years. In other words, theres momentum here, about all of them? Never before has there been so much media available and so many ways to reach potential customers. Moreover, the current economic climate has driven the price of promotion down. If you wait until the economy comes back, its going to be too late.

Professional Quality Rock Polisher
The tumbling of stones is as old as the earth, for Nature has been doing so in may ways since the beginning. Glaciers, wind, rivers and the oceans provide an incessant tumbling of Natures variety of rocks. There are very few people who have not at one time or another carried home a pocketful of interesting or "pretty" rocks from a hike or vacation trip. It is a natural interest and curiosity we all experience, for in the world of Nature, surely few things are more important than earth and rocks beneath our feet.

Micro Rock Crawler RTR
Prod. No.: LOSB0236; Also available Bind-N-Drive (BND), LOSB0236BD MSRP: $199.99 Availability: Horizon Hobby Target consumer: The guy who doesnt want to quit rock crawling when he goes back to work on Monday, and his friends who want to get into it but dont want to spring for the larger-scale version yet
wheels, tube-style frame and nicely articulated suspension show this little crawler is all business. Why you should stock it: These little vehicles are going to be big sellers because of their pedigree and size. Literally, you should be able to demonstrate these on a countertop, to great effect. The Spektrum 2.4GHz that comes with the RTR version is the gateway to sales of BND versions of the Micro Crawlers larger brethren. Hal Miller
First impression: Remember the little Stompers 4x4 trucks and how great they were at climbing things and how you always wished they could do something besides go in a straight line? Well, your wish has been finally been granted. I can pull this little crawler out at lunch and conquer the piles of paper and magazines on my desk! As much as it makes me wince to say it, its cute (ever consider a pink body, Losi?). But the beadlock

Gift card benefits
Gift cards are an extremely popular form of gift-giving. Customers have not only accepted gift cards, but have now come to expect retailers to offer them. The benefits of selling gift cards to customers are clear. In addition to the obvious advantage gift cards offer by eliminating the paper process associated with gift certificates and the ability to track and manage gift cards, it is also an easy and effective behind-the-scenes form of marketing. For regular customers, gift cards increase the convenience by which they can make purchases and provide a sense of community with the retailer, helping to develop and sustain customer loyalty. By refunding or rebating directly to a gift card instead of offering cash back, the retailer encourages repeat traffic and up-selling. Whats more, because minimal balances can be maintained on the cards, stores dont have to give cash back for low card balances. Benefits for offering gift cards/certificates are not limited to sales. The delay in the transfer of goods and services provides significant and operating cash flow and inventory management benefits. The greatest benefit to retailers is that historical consumer behavior trends show a portion of many gift card purchases are never redeemed. The unspent balances of a gift card/certificate are referred to as breakage.
Unspent = breakage
In many states, gift cards that go unused
For tax and accounting purposes, receipts from the sale of gift certificates or gift cards are usually treated as advance payments. Although the tax rules generally do not apply to advance payments received for inventoriable goods, they do apply to other types of gift certificates or gift card transactions. For example, gift certificates or cards for redeemable services (e.g., repair or finishing services) would be eligible for a one-year deferral under the IRS guidelines provided the requirements for the
Worth the work
While gift cards can present a number of difficulties for hobby shops, they remain a popular choice among consumers. The benefits are wide-ranging, from encouraging larger purchases to enhancing inventory and cash flow management. Mark E. Battersby has been reporting on tax and financial news that impacts small businesses for more than 25 years. He is the author of four books plus weekly and monthly columns for various business publications.
This is a big one. How old is the product merchandised on your stores shelves? The scary thing is that most retailers we consult with cannot tell us when product was received, nor can they identify slow sellers or those items that are dead on the shelves. The stores problem then becomes decreased inventory turns, increasing cash-flow problems, and soon the owner is eating out of inventory sales. From here, the downward spiral quickens. To avoid this, you need to be disciplined. Add a code to the product labels and/or bin tickets that tell you how old the mer-

Moebius Conan is one mighty model
Product: Fans of Robert E.
Howard rejoice! Moebius Models has released an assembly resin kit of the authors most famous character! Moebius takes its inspiration from the cover of the first issue of Conan the Barbarian, released in 1970 by Marvel Comics. It depicts Conan, standing protectively over a damsel in distress, ready to fend off a horde of attackers. Included are 15 resin pieces (counting the display base), as well as a wooden dowel for the spear shaft, toothpicks for the spear spikes and a thin wire to accompany the spear. A full-color instruction sheet is also provided. Shadow and Fair Highlight on his female counterpart. Using Reapers triads can be helpful to less experienced figure painters, and is also a useful tool in a figure modelers arsenal. I used a combination of Ceramcoat Rain Grey, Quaker Grey and Black on the base. Ceramcoat is great for covering large areas, since the bottles are large and the paint is pretty thick. Suggest that modelers pick up some acrylic paint retarder Reaper has a retarder, but other brands will work to slow drying times and allow for better shading. Also recommend an acrylic thinner or Windsor & Newton Artgel to keep brushes clean. For modelers who may be looking for some guidance with painting, there are a number of books available dedicated to finishing large-scale figures. Osprey Publishings Modelling Scale Figures (ISBN: 978-1-84603-238-7, $19.95) has fine advice regarding use of acrylics, oils and enamels, as well as techniques to get more realistic finishes. Lastly, there are a number of products you can add to this model that will really enhance its overall appeal and make it pop. For instance, I used summer grass (No. 1303) and late summer grass (No. 1304) from model-scenery manufacturer Busch for weeds in crevices in the display base. This added color, texture and realism. Small translucent beads, such as those used in O-scale model-railroad marker lights, could be added as jewels to the hilt of Conans dagger. Reviewed by Tim Kidwell

Marketing: Since the ParkZone Ultra-
Performance: The 2.4GHz radio sys-
tem supplied with the Ultra-Micro P-51 provides true 4-channel proportional flight and maneuverability incorporating the Spektrum DSM2 AR6400 6-channel receiver. This includes ailerons, rudder, elevator and throttle controls. The 2.4GHz technology eliminates interference and allows for multiple planes to be flown at the same time. This is a great feature when casually flying with friends. Since no assembly was required, I was off to my local school yard after charging the flight battery for 15 minutes. After testing all the controls, I gave the Ultra-Micro P-51 a light toss and flew for it for about 10 minutes. The little-scale 1.2-oz. warbird flew very well in light wind conditions. I was impressed with the amount of control I had right out of the box and could easily fly it in a small area. The plane is so light that it would be difficult to damage when flying over grass. The P-51 performs scale aerobatics and is designed for intermediate pilots who have had some experience with aileron-
Micro P-51 comes with everything you need to fly, it makes a perfect gift for experienced hobbyists that got to have the latest technology. The attractive box will help sell the product, and the Front Yard Fighter campaign is certain to attract the sport-scale warbird flyers. The plane is light enough to fly indoors, and the power system strong enough to fly outdoors in calm conditions. When I first started using the Bind-NFly products, I preferred to use my own Spektrum and JR transmitters. I later realized that I was always passing my good transmitter around for others to try. Once I tried the Ready-To-Fly (RTF) versions that include a lower-cost DSM2 transmitter, I discovered that it worked just as well as my more expensive transmitter and I was no longer apprehensive to let others have a try. Having both RTF and BNF versions on hand will allow your customer to choose the right fit for their own preference. Some key spares to keep on hand would be the 3.7V 120mAh LiPo (PKZ1035) and the prop with spinner (PKZ3601). Note that just about every part of this model can be purchased as a spare part.
