TQ Booster
I've had the same one in the car for over a year now, no issues.
6.5 to 17.5, and servo speed is more than enough.

I am also using the TQ booster and it is working great. It is my first 1S booster so I don't have anything to compare it to, but I haven't had any problems.

If they are "generic", how do you know they if they are the "same quality" as TQ Boosters ?

Is the only way to buy a RC dynamics booster from the UK. It would cost me alot to buy that one. I like it just wish it was a little cheaper and easyer to get. Thanks for all the input so far all great help.

that is a good point Dave, but i have had a TQ and hobbyking boosters side by side for a while and no perceivable differences.

the tq is a more convenient install, it comes with prewired and a switch, while the hobbyking has exposed maie connector posts so you need to provide your own wiring to battery power. but the tq is $30 and hobbyking is $5.

i did have to repair the tq booster, the power wires needed to be resoldered to the pcb. no strain relief on those little wires. if a hobbyking booster ever dies, installing a spare is a simple plugin with fresh servo tape to hold it down.

The rc dynamics booster is the best one that i've tried. It fits great on a 1/12th car.
