RE: Where do you order your RC parts?

RE: Servo/Radio reccomendations for FG onroad

RE: Need a transmitter for a futaba fpr113ip

Don't trust your 1/4 scaler to a cheap radio like the FlySky! The truth is that the Futaba PCM RX was top of the line in 1991 and is still manufactured today however you are sure to encounter some...

RE: I found the amp ratings for the Mamba Max Pro...

Same reasons I like Castle... My son and I each have MMPs in our SC10 and have had good luck. We bash hard in hostile conditions and they have been bulletproof. I did recently have a 5700 4 pole...

RE: Futaba R603FS FASST Receiver, is there more than one???

You will never get an answer from Futaba on this one but the blue label is the original RX with the heat issue. Futaba never admitted to a difference but it was strange that the orange label RX...

RE: Multiple lipo charger

I have the Hitec and it's a decent charger. Eventually I will get a Hyperion or Competition Electronics for my bench, but it's a good charger, especially to keep in the car. It's great being able...
