Sorry but that is not the case.

Hobby-Lobby advertises these receivers as 700 feet minimum, so I would have to disagree. While I think 700 feet would have been more than adequate for my plane, 300 is not.

Glitching should not be part of any receiver's design.

I did not mention it but they are supposed to be auto shift as well, but I was never able to get that to work on one of them.

If you do a search of Blue Arrow, you will find lots of posts documenting very poor results from these. I can not recommend them.

While I don't generally use GWS receivers due to their short range, the GWS 4 channel I had in a pico tiger moth worked fine and never gave me any trouble. I would choose the GWS over the Blue Arrow any day.
