That being said, the stock DF radio is fine if you dont have a good radio already (in fact I would say that there were about 5 or 6 using stock radios in our 21 boat fleet Saturday) , but I highly recommend upgrading if you intend on sailing in a regatta setting or sailing your boat a lot, simply because the better radios can store multiple models, usually have built in electronic adjustments, more throw, sub trim, etc.

The Joysway stock radio is almost exactly like a Spectrum DX5 , and it is 2.4gHz. It has dual rate and expo buttons on the side, you can also reverse rudders, and it has a very long range, (all of which make it 100 times better than the AM Crystal Futaba Attack radios I started with in 1996 ) I actually keep one in my box as a small lightweight backup !

Defective Part Claim Process

OK guys, I have been interfacing with Atomik on this issue...

They have already contacted Joysway and Atomik will be air shipping in the correct parts in the next week or so.

To get the correct part you will need to submit a support case at:

http://www.atomikrc.com/pages/submit-a-support-case


You will not need to send back the defective part .

If you purchased from Atomik, they will just need their receipt number and if you purchased from Amazon, Atomik will need to see a copy of their receipt...

thats it!
