Oh so cheap, BUT it has twin receivers! This is almost unheard of in the lower priced systems.

I believe twin Rx to be very important. Why? Firstly I worked in the video industry for 21 years and it is common knowledge there that twin Rx is far more reliable in getting the signal through. If one Rx can't receive the other will.

Secondly I have owned a Spektum 7 (twin Rx ) now for 12 months and not a single problem.

I've ordered a HK T4A to have as a backup system.

I'll have it in a few days & will let you know how she goes.

Like Qantas-never crashed-I wish!

The HK T4A is probably from the same supplier as this one that sells for $42.49:

Haven't been able to fly mine yet as winter here but bench testing and range testing looks good. The TX inside and out looks to be every bit as good workmanship wise as my Futaba 2.4, which by the way cost me a plane and had to be serviced as it would come unbound right on the bench!

Here's the same radio sold with a heli:
