Mike, You would be safe with any of the major manufacturers, JR, Futaba, and there are others. One of the good things now a days, with 2.4 Ghz, the gear is almost bullet proof. If you are buying new,...

tmac, I have obtained a 33% Genesis WACO. Which is an early version of the AMR kit. This one has the bagged carbon fiber gear. The newer kits have an aluminum gear.

Dan, I picked up some packing quilts at the local big box and my wife sewed a set for the 1/5 Stinson and 1/3 Sig Spacewalker. They were considerably cheaper than the commercially available bags.
