Question Cruise control

I think I already know the answer to this question but thought Iíd ask in case Iím missing something. If I switch to a different tx/rx Iíll loose the cruise control thatís on the Traxxas TRX4 rx/rx that came with my chassis kit correct?

Yes, the function is in the Traxxas Tx.
It works with any ESC, but changing the Tx to non-Traxxas will get you rid of the cruise control.

Hobby Porter HP007 has a cruise-control switch, but all TX has TH-trim that can do the same to some extend.

If you get a transmitter with the gas feature usually called "Idle Up" you can have cruise control. For transmitters with this setting you basically set the throttle position like an end point and when you hit the switch assigned it moves the throttle to that pre-set position. Now the rig will go at that same consistent speed until you hit the switch again to turn it off.

Now you cannot adjust the cruise speed on the fly like you can with the TQi transmitter but this method does work as I use it.
