Default RadioLink RC3S 4ch 2.4GHz Radio

The RadioLink RC3S four channel radio system has many fans in the hobby, and reviews can be found all over the www.

I just want to start thread in case someone feels the need to ask questions, and/or make comments about the radio.

I personally was looking for a radio system that had the option for a gyro. The RadioLink RC3S was that system. The transmitter comes with a R4EH-H non-gyro receiver, but the RC3S radio allows you to purchase and bind RadioLink's R4EH-G receivers with integrated gyros at a later time if you so desire. Perfect, for me, as the price between the RC3S, and the RC4G systems was great enough to justify non-gyro system to start with...I like being able to get a little bit of "fish-tailing" action going on during my 2wd off-road RCing.

There was a concern of mine, thanks to RadioLink's website, that having the RC4G radio and wanting to buy/use a R4EH-H non-gyro receivers was not possible. Website states specs for R4EH-H non-gyro receivers: "R4EH-H, 2.4G 4channel receiver, FHSS. Use for Radiolink TX RC3S (Note: Cannot bind to RC4G)". I didn't want to be stuck with buying only gyro integrated receivers if I chose to go the RC4G route. Later on I seen users had success in binding the Tx/Rx with no issues.

RadioLink has new radio system out, and two new receivers to go with it. Their website said the new R4F (non-gyro), and R4FG (gyro) receivers have a new communication chip, and the receivers were compatible with RC3S, RC4G and 8 channel transmitter T8FB.

I received a R4F receiver in the mail the other day, and was skeptical that it would bind with my RC3S. I read one report stating the R4FG receiver did not bind with older RadioLink radios. Well, the R4F did bind to my RC3S on the first try, and has at least a 468' range.
