Chris Kinsman alerted me to a brand new Futaba radio that looks to be the state-of-the-art in R/C aircraft transmitters:,35482

It has dual processors and runs Windows CE. It has a big color display that looks to be active matrix. It plays music. And it apparently accepts voice commands, as in “gear up.” Wow!

Now if they’ll just build a radio that runs ASP.NET, I’ll be set. Maybe then I can write off my airplanes as a tax deduction.
