I have never heard of a Quattro Lite. Who is it made by?

Dave, The Quatro Lite is a JR radio, I saw one at my LHS the other day out of the corner of my eye.

RC Dreamer, for the Wingo you will need two micro servos and a 7-8 cell battery pack of about 600mah capacity (rough estimate, but lots of guys are running higher capacity packs in theirs)

The speed control for the Wingo will need to be at least a 10 amp speed control, and with the speed control you won't need a separate reciever pack.

I suggest one of the Jeti Speed controls, or a Castle Creations Pixie 14.

Make sure that the controller has got the BEC function, otherwise you will need a separate battery. It may not be so obvious for newcomers...

Have a look at the FAQ (top of page), if you have no experience in electric power it will help you a lot!

Usually the smaller speed controls have a BEC but then again, I've seen people use a speed control on a speed 400 that was meant for a speed 600-700. Some BEC's can be disabled, like the BEC on a Jeti 10 amp ESC, just use a jumper on the end of the case.
