Scout Transmitter. The Scout combines great range and reliability at an very affordable price and is ideal for medium to large sized falcons, short-wings or broad-wings. A key goal was to seriously tune a short safe 7-inch antenna without the consequent loss in power that happens when you simply cut the antenna short. This transmitter is available in a tail mount; simply remove the tail spring if you wish to use it as a leg mount.
