Whats the best all round mid price transmitter ?
My old JR I converted to 2.4 is showing its age (steering issues)

Sanwa MX-V : great price, looks awefull . Ive had a different Sanwa in the past & loved it
Futaba 3PV : is the low price Fut really the same great Fut quality ?
Spektrum DX4c : Ive had a few spektrums in the past, mine were not the most reliable or well built
Is the DX4C orange RX compatable ?
something else ?

Please , dont suggest flysky :D I dont want gear that can interfere with other cars rx's
I'm also considering the cheap radiolink gear. But I dont think I'd like it if its too cheap & nasty .

Cheers

I race with my MXV and it certainly does its job. No complaints for such a cheap radio. Only downside is that the recievers are not cheap and are not compatible with the newer sanwa mts mt44 receivers . If your lucky you can find a mxv on ebay with 2 reveivers for about 170nzd

Ive been running the DX4C for 18mnths. Never had an issue. I haven't owned a more expensive transmitter to compare the quality but it seems well made for the $$. Runs on only 4xAAs so nice and light. Most affordable of all the RXs out there too. I use the base model SR210 for 1/10 buggy and touring and plug the transponder into the bind port.
...Ive read the Orange RXs don't work but not 100% on that...

Great little radio that. The Futaba FHSS internal antenna receivers are crazy cheap too.
