I really love my FMA direct M5 rx which could be found on tower. Very light weight and very good signal quality. Range on the RX is suburb, much better than the GWS recievers.

GWS makes a featherweight RX which you can find ... [link=http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXHHR5&P=ML]here[/link] I have had good results with their recievers but they dont have the range like the FMA's.

Berg (aka castle creations) makes some very FINE rx's . Tower will be carrying one of thier newer recievers which is [link=http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXLBY7&P=7]here[/link]

Hope this helps... I have had good experiences with most of these RX's. Havn't tried the berg but i own some of their products which is A+ in my book. And when in doubt futaba makes some fine feather weight rx's... The two i know of is the R124f and the R114f

great little reciever. depending on the channel number you want you need to get either a high band or low band. I've been using them for years. you do have to get a short crystal for them. when you use all 4 channals you need a y harness to plug in the battery and a servo

fill in the aseris for the channel number you want
