It is the best receiver I have ever used.

I have had them for a few weeks now and it is amazing how well they work. One of the local shop owners took one out to an indoor meet at a inflatable doome (3 soccer fields!) during the Cristmas break and it was successfully implanted in a couple of 'problematic' aircraft which then proceeded to max out their flying times without sign of a glitch.

Better yet, Sombra is Canadian, and they are a great bunch of guys. I suggest you pick one up because you won't go back...

I brought one of their Shadow-1 RX's in to test and I love them, I am going to sell all my bergs and trade for these, they are great! They are also going to sell a 4g 4ch RX and an 8g 7ch (Shadow-3) RX. I think I also heard some talk about a 4g heli gyro? I will bring in their stuff soon, waiting for there next production run!

OK after a bit of research I discover its only 7 ch but the pins are programmable from ch 1-14?? I guess this means if I buy 2 rx and program the second for 8-14 I can use that many chs??
