I like my Radiolink radios. They're inexpensive and they work great.

I'm currently using the Hitec Lynx 4s radio. I'm really happy with it.

While not new models, A hacked FlySky GT3B or GT3C is still probably the least expensive & most popular budget radio @$40-$60. It's widely available with inexpensive easily found 3ch,6ch, & 8ch receivers.
Tons of mixing options, up to 8 channels, every button can be remapped to another channel.
The GT3C with a lipo is the more preferred over the 2, grab a spare 1s lipo for it and you're set.
Hard to beat feature set for the $.
I've been running one hacked for about 8 years and picked up a spare not long after. No problems with either.

Yes yes! For motor mixing and super steering.. The Lever on the MT-4/MT-4s is the easiest, simplest way to go!

RadioLink Electronic Limited
It would appear they do with an update. Now I need to figure out how to update my RC6GS.

Not to my knowledge.. but... Any FHSS2 or higher RX works for us..
You only need a 2ch for a pro and 3ch for a super.. The TX comes with a 4ch..

So you can get them cheap enough..

And.. YOU DON'T HAVE TO PUSH ANY BUTTONS!!!!!! [emoji2][emoji2][emoji2][emoji2]

Radiolink RC4GS user here for just about two weeks only but it's been great so far. For the features and price, I'm very happy with it. I bought a LiFe 6.6v batt for it.

Are you mixxing 2 escs for a pro 2.2 rig with it?

Nope. Using the TX for two cars though, an on-road FF03 and semi-crawler/rally CC01. But there's also a programmable mix function on the RC4GS.

Is it crazy to just grab a takeoff Traxxas TQi (the one with the 2speed rocker and locker switch) for ~$50 over buying a different, new radio?

I'm building my second crawler soon and find no issues with the TQi setup on my TRX4, but I haven't explored it too deeply. Is there anything I'm missing out on if I go this route instead of the Flysky or something?

Well depends on the model you're considering to get. The R6FG RX has 6 channels and a gyro (can be useful too). It comes stock with either the RC4GS or RC6GS.

Before I made my order on the 4GS, I read and watched a lot of reviews and comparisons between the Radiolink & Flysky. I went with Radiolink as it suits my needs. I'm using the TX for 2 cars. An on-road and a crawler/rally set up CC01. I didn't need the 6GS for the 6 channels. Only need 4 for the extra channel and auxiliary. But the 6GS is better suited for crawlers.
