I already had two of these receivers in use and have never had a problem with either of them. It's great to have extra channels when you run two servos on ailerons and elevators and want to have a choke servo too. Nine channels cover pretty much all I need for the forseeable future and these receivers work great. Love the ability to power my servos separately from the receiver battery pack too-you can never have too much safety/redundancy.

I use this in a Peak Models 26% Extra. While you don't need all 9 channels to fly this bird, it's an added comfort to know that reception issues are virtually gone with the dual BODA antennas. I space them as far apart as possible and away for servos to reduce any noise interference. On eis mounted vertically, the other horizontally to provide reliable signal coverage. Gonitrohobbies has the best pricing on this that I could find!
