You will get mixed opinions on these. I have several and have had good luck with them and I've used them with 5 cell batteries. They may have a problem with some receivers as the amplitude of the input signal to them need to be higher than some of the 2.4GHz receivers put out. You may have to put a buffer amp between them and any of the newer receivers (the output level of most current receivers are only a bit above 2 volts regardless of the voltage applied to the receiver) to boost the signal level. I have found them to be quite reliable and effective but I usually buffer all my servo signals on my 1/4 scale planes to guarantee adequate voltage to the servos on both power and signal leads. I have several that are still in use after 10 to 15 years of service.
