Been looking to upgrade my 27mhz radio, watched some videos, is there truth to Spektrum radios cutting out with Nitro. Being told from local hobby store best radio. However I'm looking between that and Futaba. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Re: radios

I run an HPI RS4 Nitro and had problems with my Futaba cutting out. I flipped to the new DX4C with DSMR and have not had any issues. I also run a Nitro heli and have never had an issue with my Spektrum radio on that either...

My only gripe with spektrum is that the new radios support DSMR and DSM2, however the DSM2 is an 18ms frame, so you cannot use hobby king orange or lemon receivers. Your stuck buying the expensive DSMR ones...

Re: radios

If your local hobby store sells spektrum, he is going to tell you that they are the best. They may be the most popular, but it's harder to say which is the best. As for Nitro causing spektrum stuff to cut out, I would think that if your receiver is well padded, you shouldn't have any problems. I have a few Nitro cars, using Hobby King 2.4 radios and haven't had any issues yet.

Re: radios

I am not sure they told him Spektrum was the best. But I know at the hobby shop I deal with they sell more Spektrum radios than any other brand hands down.
