Default Servo and Receiver advice

I have a Eagle 400 as my second p,ane. It recommends a c-20 electric fly speed controller and says nothing about a receiver or servos. I have a gws transmitter. First do I need to by a whole new transmitter package or can iget a flight pack to work with my current transmitter. Second what servos should i use and do i need a single or dual receiver. Any help would be great. Thanks.

No need for a special transmitter/receiver; any common brand will do fine. As for dual or single, I am assuming you mean does the receiver have dual conversion or single conversion. Either will work just fine. The transmitter is the same whether the receiver is dual or single conversion. In general dual conversion receivers are somewhat better for rejection of noise and some types of interferance but either works fine. Some of the cheaper single conversion receivers do lack range, especially those made for the park flyer contingent.

Don't know how big an Eagle 400 is, but if it's a small electric, look into Hitec's micro flight pack. Very good equipment at good prices. The new Electron receiver is a nice unit.
