Default Best Model Matching Radio


I need help!!! Up until now I have been merely into building and racing the models I have (Jato, and Savage).... However I am tired of having crystal conflictws at the track so I am ready to step up to the big boys and buy a model matching system but I want a good one that will last! Can anyone point me in the right direction on this topic. I am open to opinions on this but I am also wanting to do some research to back it up however I have no idea where to start!

Thanks

2.4Ghz Spektrum is the only Model matching units available, none of the others model match, the Spektrum will not work with any other Rx that the Tx has been bound too if the model is incorrectly set on your Tx, even one of your own other models bound from the same Tx, others don't work like that, you still have to bind too your Rx but they do not model match.

I have the Spektrum and the modules to change my Futaba into 2.4Ghz from XtremeLink (Xtreme Power Systems) Graupner distribute this in Europe, there are Spektrum modules available as well as Futaba modules.

Manufacuteres are:
Spektrum
Xtreme Power sytems
Futaba

Thats about it at this time no other's available to my knowledge, I am not into cars so I don't know about any of the under 4 channel units.

Hope this helps
Mike

I only dabble with cars but I believe if you want model match in a car radio you have to buy Spektrum's top of the line model, the DX3R. Here are some spectrum manufacturers to help with your research.

I've included KO because of the following announcement

Good luck!
