Genius electronics are all in one module and not compatible with Spectrum. I had a Genius and have an mCPx. That should be a clue. If not, the Genius is quite durable but has very short flight times (3 min) that get worse (30 sec) because stock Walkera batteries suck. Aftermarket batteries usually need the connectors changed because Walkera uses non-standard. The Genius is obsolete, so parts will probably become a problem. The MCPx is a bit bigger and a little easier to fly, a bit more durable, a lot longer flight times and parts are available at most hobby stores. In short newer Walkera stuff usually isn't too bad, but is usually a hassle dealing with finding parts and doing the necessary upgrades and I hate hassles.
