advice needed HL 2.4 systems

OK I am at a cross roads on a radio systme need some advice Please?

. I am trying to decide if I should get that new Hing long 2.4 radio system whear you get a 2.4 radio with a matching HL box. OR go for a better system. /
SO far I have tryed the clark system did not work out at all. I was useing the older Dx6 radio and the 6000 reciver .
I was only able to get it to go forward and back wards left right and that was It. Later I found out it was my radio. So I sent it back . Went for the Mako 2 board .
This time I could not get any controll with the tank if and when I got it going.

This time I use my speckum dx6i-dsm with a new reciver needless to say it did not work eather .
NOW I am looking at the HL 2.4 system but I have no idea about it so can any one give me some information good and bad. ?

ALso thinking about getting ahold of Dan at US armor in canada . Been told he is good people to work with from others.
What i am looking for at this point Is a 2.3 system i can hook up with eather one of my speckrum radios .
Plug in and go . THE HL could be the way to go??
but like I say I am not sure .
So if any one can get me some answers LIKE I say good or bad ??Please reply

.I want to turn at least one tank into a 2.4 system for if I go to any large group meets I wont mess any one up . I have been there in the pass not a good idea to do it.

With our group I am ok so far with the stock HL radio RX 18 system but I have also been told they have there own set of problems .
SO if any one has any information please get in touch . I am sure it will help me to decide. Wish I could go tamyia but dont have that kind of $ to do it . So I have to go to another system.. O ya when I pulled the other setups out put in my stock HL with christal the tank ran grate and no problems.??


OK YOU can even PM me
I will get back to ya Soon after I get the message or PM thaks again

Dan deals with the DBC's which still use you RX18. It is a simple setup I got 2 DBC's and my friend has 3 of them. Plus the DBC's you get full Tamiya compatible IR battle system.

I was thinking with dans set ups you did not need to use the RX18 boards? YOU just unplug the RX 18 into yor motors speaker and top wireing and plug in his.? So what set ups are you guys useing tell me more?
.ON the Ir system I still have it set up with the Mako board it works good. I sent back the Mako 2 board and the clark board back to nathen at OKC tanks very good person to work with it and will do what he can to help .
OK this gives me a start.Thank you. DON

OK NOW TELL Me witch board that is ? with this board your saying my DX6i Dsm radio will work so I can sue a 2.4 system? Do you have any programing to do on the radio? Do you also get paper work with that unit showing you how things are set up and how everything works in dealing with the radio? So far everything I have pick up and sent back dose not have any paper work >What I am finding you dont get any paper work with any thing and that becomes a real pain. Just think of those that dont have any way of getting on line that has to be a real pain. OK Keep me posted on all of this .
Have you had any problems with any this . Did the controlls work the same as the stock christal Radio. YUP I do have a few questions and doing some home work. Thank you DON

If you follow the link I posted it explains it all. Yes the controls are the same and the board is a DBC. It will work with any radio system. There is always radio programing. There are instructions in the link I posted.
