that I don't know. I won't be getting one of these radios. I'm hoping for something in the mt-44 price range. I assume it does considering the above user made it work.

OK guys. With the $90 coupon from Tower, the 7px is within $100 of the M17. I am leaning towards the M17 just because it is newer, but wanted other opinions. Which would you choose?

If I was to change the ESC and the Servo to maximize the radio's functionality, would I have to buy Sanwa products or are there other products that I could use?

Thanks.

You already have an M17 I see, how does it feel?

Don't have it quite yet. It's coming from AMains (slowly) and I can still return it for a full refund.

Are Sanwa receiver cases still very brittle? They always seem to crack . I have had them crack from pulling them off the chassis to sell them? That is the main reason I switched from Airtronics two years ago.

Is the m17 in ssr mode with a Sanwa servo faster than the 7px in sr mode with a Futaba sr compatible servo?

The 482 is a bit fragile (compared to a Futaba receiver) , but I learned using two small 3M strips at the ends vs, the entire length of the receive bottom, allows for easier removal and less chance of damaging it. But in all they have held up in TC, F1, 1/8 Nitro Buggy and 1/8 IC.

I run a strip of strapping tape around the seam as soon as I get them.

Wireless charging can be done for less than 20 bucks!

I went with this one below because of the bigger pad.

Trigger,

It's hard to tell from the pictures. Does the Qi Wireless Charging Receiver fit inside the base or does it have to stay on the outside?

I bought this one. Its measurements seemed to fit the M17 foam and the price was right. I bought this one. Its measurements seemed to fit the M17 foam and the price was right.

Please, help needed !
I cannot bind my M17 transmitter with my RX491 receiver.
I'm following the procedure : led of the receiver is rapidly flashing when it is connected with the transmitter on bind mode selection, but even after 5 minutes, the light of the receiver never get glows and bind is not done.
I tried several time but still the same..

Receiver connection :
CH1 : steering
CH2 : ESC
SSL : bing plug

Transmitter selection :
RF Mode : FH5
Response mode : SHR (with a SRT BH9027 servo)

Is there something I have missed or doing wrong ?

Thank you for your help.
