Default New to nitro - wish list - complete?

Hi all,

I'm new to the nitro scene, and eager to get started. I'd like to ask if you could look at a wishlist I created and tell me if I'm missing anything. The only two things (as far as I know) that have been left off the list are fuel and the chassis itself, which has already been purchased. It's an Associated factory team ntc3.

If you can see anything that I missed and need to get running, please let me know.

Thanks for all input here

Look good! There alot of things and some is not really required, but if you still want it go for it, but I would look for some where else. Tower Hobbies is good but there prices is a bit high and since your getting so much things at once, if you look some where else the saving will add up.

Nice list you got there. But the only thing I would change on it would be the receiver pack. A 4.8 volt pack won't last long. Find a 6.0 volt pack and you'll have no problems whatsoever.

Same thing with the TX pack. You can get 8 NIMH AA cells for less money than the Airtronics TX pack with about 3 times the capacity.

Hey guys,

Thanks for the replies. I've changed my list over to reflect the reciever pack here: HPI 6v 1200Mah Receiver Pack

The problem I'm having is finding the batteries for the Airtronics MX-3 Transmitter.

Can anyone point me in the right direction for the transmitter batteries and offer up a charger that would handle both packs as well?

OR - Does the Airtronics have a plug where I can buy a simple battery charger and some AA Rechargable batteries and just plug into the TX at night when i'm done?

Sorry for all the n00bish questions - it's been 10 years since I've done R/C and my last venture was a Losi XXT-CR (OLD!)
