I've always used Futaba Radios and receivers in my planes and have never had a single problem. I've got one off brand receiver that Seanpcola turned me onto and it works just fine with my Tx. Currently I've only got one "Full House" plane and it's a scratch built that I wanted to see just how far I could push a 2 meter to. It's really not all that great on thermals due to weight but it handles slopes like it was designed for Torrey Pines in late winter/early spring. For a 2 meter it's a lead sled but it was a learning experience in building and design to say the least. (edit: Maybe it will thermal netter out here in Arizona than it did in Georgia. I was never really impressed with Georgia thermals thanks to the constant inversion layer in that area.)
