Default Anyone tried this radio or heard of it?

http://axonracing.com/catalog/produc...products_id=33

Just saw a banner for it at the top of the page, supposedly it's a 2.4ghz radio system for only $100.. For my expertise level at this hobby if it's legitimate, it couldn't be too bad to start with for $100.

Looks like a rebadged MX-3. Might be a good starter radio. I personally prefer 75mhz. I think 2.4 is over rated.

Radio and servos are two things you never go cheap on. Buy the good stuff first and you won't have to replace it for some time. The link between your brain/hands and your car go thru your radio, receiver then servos.
