Hello , Look at what I ran into by mistake , Futaba receiver for $15 bucks ... Question is ,are they any good .. I ran thru the buying baloney to find that they charge $8 for shipping .. so that brings it to $23 without a crystal .
starting to sound like not such a great deal ?

So whats the thoughts from the people here .. Wonder if I can use the crystal from a corona receiver I have thats shot (no Good)
well that's it my "bargin" hope it works for someone
good nite stay warm, down in the 40's here tonite , Thanks again ,Don J.

:roll:I can't get the link to load .It's at www.raidentech.com (http://www.raidentech.com) the futaba receiver for $15 :mad:.. Nothings easy ahhh! why wouldn't the link load ????

I have several futaba recievers.

Use A futaba crystal that is for that particular Rx

I didn't see the Rx on the site, but $23 sounds like a good price....$12-13 more for the crystal....

I think you did just fine bargain hunting, but to know for sure, post the Rx model number....:)

Looks like it's a Raidentech reciever that uses Futaba frequency modulation...

I would buy their crystal to go with it!!!

Let us know how it works....

Looks like single conversion....Keep the plane closer....dual conversion RX's are better for longer range.
