They're basically the same. Magnum is for North America and Megatech is for the rest of the world.

Figures, everyone in Mass. has to copy me now. BTW, resist the urge to save money and don't get the Megatech version.

There is nothing wrong with the Megatech version, unless you are in North America. Futaba USA will not cover warranty for Megatech version.

It's a gray market item here in the states. It saves you money because it doesn't come with a battery or charger and if you switch to FASST or Spektrum then you can even buy the 40MHz version. You do get a battery holder for 8 AA's.
