Yeah I was looking at the 9452 so would you use that on both steer and throttle?I was also looking at the BLS451 but it says that it has high current draw??

make sure you run a 5amp regulator so you dont burn the servos out.

correction - you need to run a regulator so you do not burn out the battery eliminator circuit on the receiver...

whatever you reckon

spektrum has a built in regulator for the receiver but does not control the servos.

we tried the 2 amp and we overheated the regulator so that is why you should run the regulator

P.S there goes the neighbor hood.

S9452, or even better yet, look at the S9551's.

I currently have the 9452 for steering and the 9550 for throttle. Just too lazy to change it out for the 9551 which I have as a backup.

the 9452's work great for both. you might have to slow down the steering just a tad though.

Yes they are, but they are also:

More expensive, heavier and in some cases they do not fit easily into a nitro sedan.
