Perfect for winter flying! The excellent Turnigy Transmitter Muff is windproof and synthetic fur lined, it features a clear plastic window so you can see the screen of your computer radio and hook and loop adjustable wrist and transmitter pockets. The Muff also features a cage to stop the muff interfering with your transmitter switches...nicely thought out...nicely made....perfect for die hard pilots!
*Note: This is a universal transmitter muff and fits most transmitters on the market today.
Used mine first time in 25knot wind and 12C on the slope. Hands were kept nice and warm and I know where all my switches are without looking so that wasn't a problem.
Only drawback I can see is that you need somebody else to launch model in big winds due to getting hands back inside glove, BUT in big winds I always need both hands on Tx anyway, so somebody else always launches model. In lighter conditions there isnt a problem getting hand back inside glove because model isnt being buffeted and there is plenty of time. It is also very good indoors in the winter when its freezing inside gym hall. Models then take off from ground and batteries are in my pockets to keep warm.Yeah, now I can fly out in the cold.
The only downside is, that there is no way to hook up your Receiver strap. Apart from that, I like it.Great for those really cold days in the winter, can even hand launch and get your hand back inside quickly,Pros:
1) It keeps your hands warmer when flying during the winter.
2) The synthetic fleece/fur is warmer than the other type of transmitter glove sold by hobbyking that is meant to just stop the wind and rain.
3) It is significantly cheaper than some of the other transmitter gloves made for cold weather.
1) It looks extremely dorky looking.... It looks like someone took a pair of boxers and put a plastic window in them. But if you are flying in the cold, I doubt there will be many people around to judge... and you can just laugh at them while their hands are cold.
2) No hook for neck straps.
Keep you nice and warm without getting in the wayI bought one of these and find it is excellent on the slope in the cold wind conditions right now! It is very pleasant to use as it is quite soft, recommended!!!Really does keep the hands and fingers warm on the cold damp winters days. Wrist ports are infinitely adjustable with velcro cuffs. Transmitter fits snugly inside. Will fit most brands of transmitters if not all. Very light and does not snag transmitter controls. If you fly during the cold winter months one of these is essential, I would argueSlightly awkward to use but overall a good product and will keep your hands warm during the cold months.Top fr die Winterzeit.
Electronik wie die Hnd sind geschtzt und warm.I received this transmitter glove in the mail and I am VERY impressed. It's wool or synthetic wool lined to keep your hands nice and warm in the cold. The construction is of great quality and there is even a metal bracket to keep the back up off of your radio on the top which allows plenty of room to put your hands in there on the radio without interference from the bag itself. I fly a JR 11X and it fits great. The window is large enough to see your screen and most of your radio. It is also very light weight so it will not be a hindrance for me to use my radio. I'm not a neck strap kind of flyer so this is PERFECT and I am very happy with my purchase. I like it so much that I ordered another to give as a Christmas gift to a fellow flyer. If I could make one suggestion I would like to be able to tighten the glove around my wrist area to keep out any potential breeze from getting in my glove. Would also be nice if it had a pocket to put an air heater in but it's not a big deal. Nice product, HK
