Default Radio Control Systems

I have a Marder Race as you know, and when i got the car i brought a Hitec Aggressor 40FM radio gear (transmitter and receiver) from modelsport UK. I brought this as i did not have the budget and i thought that i would try a pistol grip and see how i got on.

I find it ok but i prefer a Stick type as that is what i have used previously. So what is best for my money. I don't waht to spend over ther top, but something that is a good quality FM radio with good range and has options and adjustment etc...

I was thinking about Sanwa Gemini II - http://www.modelsport.co.uk/?CallFun...n&ItemID=16112 or the Hitec Eclipse Pro - http://www.modelsport.co.uk/?CallFun...n&ItemID=19469 both are in the £150 mark.

I have servos, multiplex Jumbo digi servo (steering) and hitec 625MG (throttle/brake) servos.

does anybody have an other recomondations??

Cheers

When I bopught my Bergonzoni it came with 2 of them red Multiplex servos, the jumbo and the smaller one. I actualy tried them both to see if they work, they have a LOT of tork... I have had 2 Agressor radios in the past, NO LUCK!! I will never buy one of them again!!!!

I have the Sanwa Gemini II with my FG MB and had no problem with it at all. It has enough range to make the MB a small dot in the distance.

the flash four would do the job
but if your going to add another servo for brakes the other hitec would be better so you can mix it in.
i use a normal 4 channel 40mhz hitec
use it for 3 boats and my car all i have to do is flick the reverse switch for channel 1 when i run the car
get the best you can afford
you get what you pay for

I aggre.."get the best you can afford

so the Hitec Eclipse Pro you are saying would be ok and all that and i do intend to add another servo for front brakes.

A couple of people at the club i go to have got the Ko Propo Esprit Vantage Type-R 40FM http://www.modelsport.co.uk/?CallFun...n&ItemID=15550 this look really good with lots of features, but i don't like the 300 pund price tag


So at the moment it looks like its the Hitec Eclipse Pro.

dunno about Ko Propo Esprit never heard of them
that hitec should have all the stuff you need and some
i might even treat myself out of my xmas bonus
i really fancy the model memory thing, don't have to fiddle with the trims to much from model to model
but pushing a button would be right up my street.

Its the Stick version of the Mars R wheel set as far as I know. If its as good as my Mars R its very very good, but yes very very expensive still theres always one on Ebay for around the £120 mark.

Hello
I have a KO propo Esprit III, Does anyone know how to dismantle this radio. It seems the hex screws around the stick from the outside, the four which fix the orientaion direction, have gotten loose from the intside. I already removed the back 6 screws but it doesnt seem to open smoothly, and i dont wanna break it, i like this radio...any one has a similar radio and has opened it ?????

There is only ONE rc tx on the market now with large scale mixing designed in by the top racers of large scale cars that is the Nomadio React.
