 Great upgrade from RTR equipment
By Wes B on March 3, 2020   Verified Purchase

It will take some getting familiar with because I am used to the basic TXs that come with RTR rigs. But so far love it and the customization options you have. Plus the ability to use it with all of my 1/10 rigs is huge.
