Default Which Radio

The racing season is over for our track and i need a new radio. I want a top of the line that will give me little to no problems. I know feel is important, but as far as options, reliability, and service goes which one of these would be the best for me? I will be using it for a gas truck and electric buggy.

Default RE: Which Radio

well i decided to get the M8. Do all of the new recievers need the z-connectors or will my standard connectors on my futaba servo and novak esc work? ANDDD can someone send me a link to an M8 with everything i will need. Reciever,TX,blk light,and Module dont need the servos if you can find one like that.

JR R-1. I own two of them, they are great. Never have a clitch. Even when everyone else is having problems with their M8s, my son and I are still going strong.

Just got a Futaba 3PK with HRS receiver. Glitch from the get go. Tried EVERYTHING and the culprit was the receiver. Got an FM receiver (Futaba) and glitch gone.

Did you use all digital servos and the proper voltage?
