    Transmitter & Receiver Upgrade for Rustler XL-5

    Hello all,

    I would like to upgrade my transmitter and receiver to 2.4 ghz. Which Traxxas 2.4 ghz transmitter/receiver combo would be a direct fit for my rustler? Are there any other brands besides Traxxas I should consider?

    Thanks for any help/advice you can give a noob like me!

    Any 2 channel radio will work... Traxxas or otherwise.

    I have had the LINK radios... liked them except for the menu/LED system
    Currently using Fly Sky GT3B 3 channel radio that is hacked... now has 8 channels and runs off from a 3S LiPo.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    If I upgrade the AM receiver and transmitter to 2.4 GHz, would a change in servo be required too? I plan to upgrade the stock servo to the Traxxas 2075 one for it's increase reaction time and added power.

    Thanks!
