Though the VFO Pogo is basically a four channel airplane, It does require mixing capabilities that you will not find on most four channel radios. For that reason you need a six or seven channel radio with electronic mixes, or the use of connectors to link the two rudder halves and elevator halves. The choice of radio is dependent on the brand of radio you use and its capabilities. The FutabaŽ 7C seven channel radio system is the minimum radio requirement within the Futaba line of radios. Other brands may offer you the required mixes in a six channel radio.
