Default Help! radio newbie!

Hey guys. I'm looking into purchasing a new radio for my AE GT2 (truck). And have some questions. First off.

1. what is a servo?
2. How many are needed?
3. on [link=http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXENN1**&P=0]this[/link] what does the ESC do?
4. please include anything else you think a radio newbie would need to know.


thanks!

Sorry, I understood you had already read the GT2 RS FZAQ pages
otherwise check out the RX systems available at Surface Transmitters - RC systems
