The transmitter & receiver are a system so your existing receiver will not longer be used. I'd look at Spektrum surface radios for quality & price. I own an older DX4 Pro and a Futaba 4PK-R. ...

The other half of the "C" rating that people don't always understand its...

That's what I was suggesting in my earlier post that it seems to me that the C rating is overemphasized for marketing. Meaning that not only can a manufacturer sell a battery of higher capacity for...
