Just got back into racing slashes after about a year off and since I sold everything I had to buy all new. I decided on this radio and receiver combo. First for the options this has you can't beat the price, abs, 10 model memory 2.4ghz etc. It only takes 4 aa batteries and is very light, it has a different feel than the spektrum systems I've gotten used to, but not terrible, everything is easy to read and setup good bang for the buck. Any ?'s just ask.
