Default Cheap flight pack!

I have a Hitec focus 4 FM Tx Ch56. I'm looking for a cheap flight pack for my gentle lady glider with a AP .061. I need a reciever, battery pack, switch harness and 2 servos. Standard size servos are ok. I already have an extra airtronics servo so i only need 2. Where's the best prices, including shipping.

You can get those parts separately for a good price here: www.radicalrc.com I recommend the FMA M5 V2 receiver. Shipping is $2. Total cost would be about $70.

Radical RC are a good place to buy from but you might find the [link=http://www.lightflightrc.com/HTML/products/LFRC_D8.htm]LightFlightRC[/link] receivers a bit cheaper than the FMA ones (and you get a choice of 6 or 8 channel units (the dual-conversion 8ch one is only $27 and they're damned good).

Radical RC's HES288 Super servos are a good choice for anyone on a budget though -- they're a bushed servo but despite that they have *much* less slop than the cheap Futaba ball-bearing servos. I like them and have about 16 in use at the moment.

What is the difference from a single conversion receiver vs a dual conversion? I was looking at this S4 http://www.lightflightrc.com/HTML/products/LFRC_S4.htm
Can my radio use a single conversion? Not trying to be cheap (ok yes i am) but it is almost half as much as the dual.

Single conversion are quite often, more susceptible to interference. Mostly used for indoor & parkflyers.

Hmmm.......

So the distance a motor glider goes might be a problem with interference?

So what kind spec's on a receiver should i look for.
