Default Why so many Xxtras on eBay?

Is there some newer/better synth receiver available that's causing so many people to sell used Novak Xxtras?

I'm shopping for a receiver to use in a TC3 w/SS5800 and either an M8 or 3PK radio.

Is the Xxtra still the best choice for my setup?

I sold 2 simply because they were too big for my application. Worked fine otherwise. Would be nice to see a compressed version without all of the plugs though. And because I'm a stickler on looks I wish they redesigned the label and made the case black or grey- it's too garish... I know, i'm picky.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

That and they are not "recommended" by manufacturers for there High Speed Response radio systems. YOu sometimes need to put your radio in slower response mode to avoid glitching or for it to even work.

Some will say you canNOT feel the difference between normal and HSR, so its your choice.
