Thanks very much!

That is the one! Just looking for a seller in the EU now. I emailed rdvtg to see if he can supply it.

This is a super board.

If you are on a tight budget, this US$25, 2.4Ghz actually works really well.

2.4Ghz Receivers for it are only $7 !!!!

Maybe you can consider Ko Propo EX5-UR... They are inexpensive and have a very small receiver for minis. Check it out!!

As far as radios go you may want to checkout the new Traxxas 2.4 system and how it easily links to any number of receivers. For the price it's a good deal.

I've had the DX3S for 16 months in multiple applications, with ZERO issues.
I have three rx and they have had plenty of abuse.
