    Question Best location for a Transponder? on any 1/16

    I race my 1/16 Mustang/Rally and want to do a duel servo set up but the issue i find is where will a Transponder fit i normally use a screw to hold it on the chassis where the second servo slot is.

    Where is the best place for a Transponder?

    Thank you for the Help

    This may sound like a dumb queation, but what is a transponder?
    With great brushless comes great responsibility.

    You could place it sideways on the rear body mount.

    I won't recommend a dual servo. They will fight eachother and burn up. Its better to upgrade the servo and stick with a single servo setup.

    Yes. In a perfect world. In reality both servos move slightly different speeds and want to center in slightly different spots. This will make them fight eachother and burn up.

    I recommend your transponder goes next to your flux capacitor

    As for mounts... Maybe this is an idea for ya. Here's what I did. And single Hi-tech 85mg works just fine. No need for dual servos.







    Btw, The back story to the NOS bottle, is my "signature" that I've done on all my RCs. First had a purpose of hiding a servo wire, than it just became a thing. I make em, all kinds of colors. slap em on.

    But anyways, Point was to show ya the mount.
