Best receiver ever made! My only gripe is that the case comes apart way too easily, I was in a hard crash a few weeks ago and the case popped apart and I had to send the receiver back to Novak to get a replacement one under warranty. Just make sure to tape the case together so it cannot seperate, the problem I am speaking of is similar to the case problem on the LRP Quantum Competition ESC.

Just tape the case together so it cannot come apart and you've got yourself the greatest receiver ever .

All of my newer kits have the Novak XXtra which I use with my M8. Never experienced any glitching and like the others love the receiver and the other Novak products that I use (specifically the Brushless Motor System)!!!

In Asia it's available in 27mhz, 40mhz, & 75mhz. Taping the side of the case is good to do (though fortunately I have never had the receiver case pop open on me) and if you also use it for off-road kits then a receiver cover is a plus as well!

I have the XXtra as well as the Switch for my M8, and I love it. the only complaint i have is the size of the XXtra. I wish it was about half the size that it is, but it sure is nice not to have to worry with crystals anymore.
