I ended up going with the the LiPo - if only I could solder properly, it'll fail sooner or later (and the transmitter-side wires are so flimsy to begin with). My battery size is 103x13x35mm, only needed to cut maybe half a centimeter on one side of the battery 'chamber' due to battery width, overall very easy in that regard.

Sorry it took so long. My physical measurements are 17x29x88mm. It's a Turnigy 1700mAh from Hobby King.

Here's a pic of my install, the upper part of the battery compartment has been trimmed, since both sides were symmetrical originally:

Hi guys, do you know if some RXs in the past had issues ammited by Sanwa ?
I mean a problem that bring servos to twitch around neutral point in a particular channel. I know at least five people, included me, with this issue in the waterproof receiver, then warranty replaced.
Five cases with same problem should be more than a simple fortuity.

Made a trigger adapter for my youngest, now he can operate throttle and brake with no issues.

Machined and tapped the delrin, and cut the kydex to fit.

We have run 5 W3371 receivers, and there have been 0 issues. It has always worked. What does your wire look like? Is it a shortened Antenna?

I too have never had any issues running that receiver. It could be some other problem in the system, such as a BEC issue with the esc?
