For those that want to purchase this radio, let me first start by saying its gorgeous. the backlight and options for this radio are awesome. the build quality seems pretty decent,everything fits together quite well. The negative for this radio is range, i set this radio up for my RC10 B3 and upon my first test with fresh batteries the car went 30ft and lost range and subsequently took off like a drunk driver down the street. Upon my second test of this setup, i did the lipo mod for the transmitter hoping more voltage would help but it doesnt, again 30ft and whiskey throttle down the block. One thing i can say is you can setup a cutoff on the receiver so your RC doesnt take off if it loses signal. Overall, i would stay away from this product and buy a FHSS system if anything. I have now switched to a Spektrum and am very happy.
Does the receiver take 6V?
What receiver can i buy for it (I don't see the turnigy one listed here on hobbyking).
Is it good for drift? I have a JR digital FM 3 channel radio, but it sucks for drifting, because the wheel has very low amplitude. I even prefer the wheel from the hobbyking analog cheap radio than my JR.
Hi all, I have seen on youtube vids about upgrading firmware on gt3b gt3c and gtx3 transmiters. Who can give me more infos.
Is it possible to convert the gtx3 mother board as the gt3b/c? Thanks for you advises.
I bought that Transmitter and it is pretty good! BUT! Where is the delay for Steering and missing parts from the the first Version GTX3 from Fly Sky??? That GTX3 - HERE - is the Version GTX3B. Also is a NEW Version on the market called GTX3C !!! But the problem is also that the DSC connector from that Turnigy version does not LONGER work. The old version GTX3 works from Fly Sky. I sell it in the hope to get a better one with new releases and more features. What I get is a half version of the GTX3 from Fly Sky which does not work with simulator now! So again Turnigy - what do you think how long you can do that with your customers! I am very depressed.

1 thumbs up!
Nice RX! There are so much buttons! That is why it's a little bit hard to understand how to use them. But it is so cheap and it works great! Also it is compatible with hobbyking (HK) and turnigy (X9) receivers. I give "A " for it!

The feel of the tx is quite nice, better then i expected. The selection wheel/button feels very cheap. (but it was $36.00 which is cheap) I binds fine with GT2 rx's. The screen looks really nice, backlight is bright, and it is very easy to read. This is my first programable tx, so I can not compare it.
2 things I was disappointed in is the limited 3 character model naming, and the fact that the "10 models" is nothing more then saved pre sets. If you are on model #3, it will still pair to any rx it has been bound with. So if you have a rescue boat, it can not use this tx along with whatever boat you just got stuck.
overall I am very satisfied with the tx.
