Are you feelin lucky, Punk?  Well, are ye?

Not sure why you have persisted with still using the old electronics in any proportion after such a clear set of warnings.

Buy a FlySky FS-i6 or spend a little more on a cheaper FrSKy Tx like the Q7, and make that old Futaba Tx the doorstop it clearly is trying to be.   It really is not worth investigating any more.

Any wind, when it hits trees, can (and does) create turbulence, and depending on the strength of the wind and the height above the trees, sometimes a headwind can playfully turn into a tailwind.
When playing with trees, it pays to maintain a healthy dose of flying speed so as to negate the possibility (and affects) of being thrown around.

Flying close to trees at low speeds on landing approaches could very well invite some problems.

Agree, however there wasnít a breath of wind when I was flying so Iíve counted out turbulence, that and the fact there was no reaction from the sticks for about half a second.

I used to fly with JR stuff so good quality ??!  However before I changed to2.4 , I did use Dual Conversion RXes  which did work a lot better,
Mine were Corona..
cheers   

I only fly electric these days, and I used (and still use) mainly schultz receivers. These never had any problems with glitching. Unfortunately they went out of business a few years back and are no longer made. I also use sme of the better futaba ones, both single and dual conversion. I'm not sure dual conversion makes a lot of difference - it's principle benefit relates to AM image rejection to allow FM and AM systems to play nicely together. The futaba ones sometimes need the odd ferrite ring, but not that often.

But even now I have some models that still use 35MHz because I can't be bothered to swap the Rx when that one works fine. I just have to remember to pull up the Tx antenna and shift the neckstrap to the upper hook. Oh yes, and I have to pay attention to the battery level if I'm flying on 35MHz because it drinks a lot more current due to the higher power.

Ok point taken.  Iíve persisted with this radio for a number of reasons.  Main one is that I like the tx, I know the functions inside out and itís all I need really. I really thought the problems were interference caused by the esc on the 35mhz.  The problems might be due to a steel framed garage in close proximity to where I was flying.  The radio signal could be reflected off it possibly.

I still occasionally run a few 35MHz planes, all small indoor or parkfly. Stuff that gets a fly once or twice a year at most and I'm too lazy to convert.

When you can get a decent 8 channel 2.4GHz receiver for less than £10 (FlySky) AND it has basic telemetry, the "I still have a number of 35MHz Tx (around 10 at last count!) so I should use them " situation becomes somewhat laughable, though I do still use the best Futaba one for the Simulators with the crystal out so no RF as its battery lasts forever.
