I would for sure take one...i run at three indoor nitro tracks in the winter, which in IA and IL is 7-8 months a year it seems...Even after a 15 min main in January, your hands are froze!

Does your hands get sweaty? I know I have used them before when wrenching on my "real" car and that happens.

Cool. Mine might be more unique....kind of hard to tell in that pic, but it does look different. I will check it out further.

Created version 2 last night, have another version to make, I hope to get finished tomorrow.

Further investigation, the Novarosi one appears to be for stick transmitters.

Mine is for wheeled transmitters like the M8, M11, 3PK, 4PK and Spektrum line of controllers.

ModHobby,

just an idea, since you make them, i think you should try making them for different TX, for example a KO screen is on the side where its on the top of the M11 where its on the back of a 4PK, you know what am sayin will be nice to have one specially made for the TX. Name tags too

cheers
