Default Reciever Question

Hello All,

I am looking at upgrading my radio and receiver very soon to one of those FM type radio's. The one I am looking at comes with a much smaller receiver.

The current receiver in my BS802T 1/8 buggy is allot larger and has a special plastic compartment and lid that is closed by an r-clip.

If I get this new radio and receiver what is the best way of securing the receiver into the box, considering that new smaller reciever will have allot of room to move around in current box?

I've even used my sister's makeup foam which is triangle shaped.

Spectrum has pretty tough RX's. They aren't going to heat up or have heat prblems most likely. Especially if you aren't runnning a Lipo regulator.

I'd strongly recommend going one step higher on radios to the Spektrum DX3S or DX3R.

DX3S is your best bet

DX3S any idea what that retails for?

I dont know much about radio's or receiver's im just starting out. I thought the spectrum type kits were all FM.

What would the DX3S have over the 2.0?
