Re: Rx and arduino problems

I've always found the orange RX a bit fragile
I'm inclined to agree with you on that one Rory.

Rx and arduino problems

Just a quickie before I disappear back to my normal lurking. I recently broken an orange rx. Nothing new there, but I wanted to clarify what I got wrong.
