I'm not familiar with that radio but I would suggest he stick with something from one of the major manufacturers: JR/Spektrum, Futaba, Airtronics/Sanwa, KO Propo.

I agree. The last thing you want is a radio that dies on you and your vehicle crashes, causing you lots of $$$.

IMO its more of wehat its worth.

-you get what you pay for

buy something cheap expect something cheap.

break a part you gotta deal with them for it. and most little companys don't wanna deal with parts.

bigger brands and huge comapanys sell internal radio parts and extarnal parts for radios. (and something will break sooner or later)
