    I concur. The promotional video only shows the Alias getting run over by a bicycle, not a car. There is likely something broken on the receiver board that is not visible.

    I believe just about everyone here is using the standard LaTrax transmitter. For me, it is comfortable, configurable, and provides instant access to any accessories that I attach to the quad...

    I just shot a new video using the Alias camera for recording and my RMRC camera/transmitter combo for FPV. The quad was a little heavy with all that but still performed pretty well. Check it out.

    I'm tellin' ya, a little bit of electrical tape works well for holding stuff onto the Alias and it's lightweight. I haven't had any problems with ground clearance either.
