Best Tx systems for boats by Sparkman Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 5 months ago
I started out with a futaba transmitter ,then when I got more boats found that I needed another ,big mistake for me ,a transmitter with multi model memory is a must , some of the cheaper models for less than £50 are adequate ,although they are for aircraft ,I just ignore most features , the turnigy one from hobbyking at £45.13 p is ideal and receivers are reasonable too . Get the right mode , .it has the usual things you may need ,end point adjustment ,travel ,reverse etc .
