The RTF ver. comes with everything you need - a Lipo and it's charger, an instruction manual, and a 2.4 SPECTRUM system. Yeah, spectrum with a C.
Both sites are cheaper than www.Hobbycity.com
when it comes to the Easy-star wanabeez, altough I'd still recommend getting servos and batt. from HK and the motor+ESC from RCTimer.
This is a clone of the Hawk Sky that Dave Powers raves about BUT it has a brushed inrunner motor. Note the suggested upgrade to a Brushless motor for an additional $30. One would hope that includes a brushless ESC!
The Tx is also a clone - not saying it's bad but still not as good as a true SpeKtrum.
