Having last seriously done some modelling over 35 years ago I was totally amazed at the difference in electronics, this was emphasised in the Radio Control.

But batteries, motors have changed massively as for on board telemetry.. I thought that was just a Formula One thing.

I still have my old Futaba 35Mhz system which still works but was always prone to interference. You can tell as it has the 'fishing rod' arial.

My early submersion in the hobby quickly revealed the new 2.4 mhz systems that bind the receiver and transmitter making interference a thing of the past. I believe that over 100 2.4Mhz systems have been operated simultaneously without any problem!
