Default Radiopost problems

I am racing buggy with a Tekin RS and reedy 17.5 motor. 2 to 3 minutes in the race the radio looses signal and the car of course shuts down has any body experienced this problem of something similar. The speed controller tells me that I have lost signal and when I shutoff the receiver and turn it back on it works fine and in 2 minutes or less same problem and it does it in boosted and blinky.

Can we use another manufactures receiver.

Exclamation Left hand RX

90% this is RX antenna short circuit. The core lead might touch upon the shield. Solution: I changed the co-axial wire on my RTR and the problem was solved. It requires vy accurate soldering and should be done by a mini soldering iron not to overheat the scheme contours...

My question, what surface radio out of G3 i.e Airtronics(Sunwa), Futaba and KoPo... can be converted for the left-hand driver? Thanks....
