I have tried them all out at the track and the only difference i ever noticed was when i switched from spektrum to spektrum pro other wise you won't notice a difference. Another note is that its easier to find spektrum recievers in shops and second hand.

Also i think the futaba and aitronics ayatems hop around where as spektrum is its own. between these two and the pro i would get whatever is cheapest.

Wow nice info

Is there a big difference using a budget servo and an expensive servo to touring car?
Do you think having a high end TX can someone help controlling the car behaviour rather than having a middle end TX (2pl)?
Thanks!

For touring, I'de definitely go with a fast servo. If on a tight budget .15 would be slowest i would go for speed, but .10 or less would be much much better. as for a Tx, you can see some radio's response time is faster than others, and depending on how consistent you are will really dictate if you would really benefit from a slightly less laggy radio or not. Obviously a quality radio would be a great purchase, and its one that will last you a long time, but you would be fine with a normal radio and crystals till you can afford to move up. A faster servo would probably be a better first step, then move to the radio when funds are there.

Transmit speeds are great for marketing but in all honesty you're not going to notice a difference between systems. You'll notice a difference in servo speed before you see a difference in system speeds.

Just an example, AC current in your house cycles at around 60 hz. Can you see the light bulb blink on and off as the current reverses? I sure can't and yes it does go off and on as the current reverses. Any of the 2.4 systems on the market today are good and all of them are faster than any of us could ever "see". Just pick the one you like with the features you want and go from there. All the manufacturers have a slightly different way of getting to the same place due to patents and licensing issues. Bottom line, everyone has good stuff, you won't go wrong no matter which you choose.

EngTat,

Sorry, can't mix brands. Since they all use different methods to acquire channels, they don't "talk" to each other.

FH I think is "Frequency Hopping". It keeps jumping around frequencies every 2ms or so. The DSSS just locks onto one frequency....I think.
