Im considering trying a over the ear headset designed for XBOX or PS4 since it has the 3.5mm jack and is designed for 2 way communication. I found really good brand ones on ebay for no more then 20 dollars a headset. Plug it into the cell phone and call your buddy in the pits. I really think it will work well but just haven't bought the headsets yet. If i do ill update this thread of how it works out

I was actually thinking about testing that route as well.

Link to what YOU use? You can just ramble on or you could share what you actually use. If you are providing advice, I would assume you have tested and used something. How hard is it to share a link.

Here's what most of the racers use UltraLITE PG1. They are by far the best option. Simple to use and no burden on a pit man. Turn them on and go. They are expensive, but if you race nitro like I do, they are worth every penny.

after i read that post, i had a search and found quite a few ideas that were cheaper. Sena creates way higher quality systems for less.

If you look under motorbike communication you can find really high quality gear for less, theres a good chunk on Ali Express for cheap that work really well too.

If y'all want to be helpful post a freakin link. Otherwise, its garbage that has NOT been used or tested for RC nitro racing. Eartec is still the best. Prove me wrong.
Senas are about $200 EACH..........................

go a page back and check out what I said, the sena system isnít better then my set up with the noise canceling headphones and lexin r6 85$ on Amazon and 14$ for the noise canceling headphones from harbor frieght. The sena has a lag so it almost sounds like an echo. My set up does not.

The EFRA rule book states that the driver can only have a single ear headset so they can hear the race director so these wouldnít be suitable at a lot of race meets. (Unless Iím wrong)

Easily Solved, Cut a hole in the opposing ear side, take out the inner foam, leave the cup and cup seal.
