radio is the same as the flysky.
HK sells a few other flysky radios with the HK sticker on em too.

Servos no clue not really tried any servos from them.

easy they don't have to buy the $100 Futaba stickers to slap on it, like the lipos don't carry the $100 MA stickers



(btw just joking not trying to start a flamewar)

They're mass-produced with cheap labor, and aren't sold to American companies for massive markups

i have been having mine for about 3 months and i find it works well i got 4 receivers and put it in all my running cars. there are a few on here who will say it is junk but the kicker is the people who knock it have only seen one in a pic and never used one but they know better. and just want to dog it because they spent 200.00 to 350.00 for theirs and cant except a 35.00 radio has all the functions as there high end radio. it is in no way better but for 35.00 it a way better deal.

the knockers will say they have heard of the radio causing run a ways and i will say it can but most of the controllers that have model memory can also. for instance lets say on model 1 you have your nitro truck and you keep the throttle servo advanced a little to help it idle and you running you electric car on model 2. by mistake while messing with the settings you switch to model 1 since the throttle servo was a little advances it could make you car take off but if it ever happens just turn of the controller and the car will stop.

keep checking hobbypartz.com it will be in stock soon

I'm tired of being ripped off. I can get that radio and3 extra Rx's for less than one Futaba Rx. I use a Turnigy 1501 servo for steering on my crawler and SC10. Really good and strong for those.

good to hear some good reviews about the radio and servos. I know im gonna get ripped on at the track because mine doesnt say "spektrum", "airtonics", or "futaba", and cost $200+. but i know ill be happy with it. Should i just wait until hobbypartz or nitrorcx has them instock or just order from HK

Only issue I ran into so far with flyskys was with the GT3, the trigger pin broke off after 8 months of heavy use. 1 1/10th scale tire pin, a dab of superglue, a tiny drill bit, and 10 mins of time fixed it better than new though.
