The Rx is good.

Now I would be curious to see how much difference there is between the Lawmate RX and whatever the heck this 4ch RX is from RMRC

I have one of the 4ch RX's above from them with upgraded saw filter, and quality looks rock solid. Now I'm in the market for a second RX for eagletree diversity hookup.

Wonder if it's worth just ordering another 4ch of the same type, or hook up a lawmate RX as secondary?

I also was thinking about going to the law mate ! I now have two of the mini tan 4 ch rx going to a eagle eyes for diversity only , with a modified patch and a yagi . Been out little over 6 miles , and today was able to watch my whole crash below the three line 1/2 mile away after talking to a few people don't think its worth going to the law mates ( also mine have the filters done also )

I thought I covered this. Maybe it was a different thread.
That Rx is generally referred to as the Racewood Rx and if it's the genuine article it has a
Comtech Rf module in it. It's what I've always used and with the SAW filter mod I think it's on par with the Lawmate Rx.
4 of the channels on the Sunsky FOX800 Tx match the 4 channels on the Racewood Rx.

Ian, where do you buy the "racewood" VRX? Have you ever tried the usual sunsky rx with the upgraded saw filter? how do they compare?

The Racewood Rx is the one linked above.
Feels like we're going backwards here.

Well, I was hoping there was another source for the 1.3Ghz Racewood RX, besides RMRC, so that's why I was curious. There has been much talk about these RXs sold elsewhere without comtech modules.

So far, I only know of 1 verified source for this, and that's:
http://www.readymaderc.com/store/ind...roducts_id=224 -- which is currently out of stock
There's this one too:
http://www.rangevideo.com/index.php?...products_id=68 -- but I don't know if it is the same (has the comtech module).
Is there a Chinese site equivalent as well? etc

Mine came from RangeVideo years ago.

One glitch I see there is they only list 4 available channels while FOX800 has 8 ch.
Dunno if that's a typo, or they've limited it for some reason.

That's fairly common for EU businesses. For consumers it's roughly equiv to writing a check, but
too big of a hassle to deal with from the US. I usually just order direct from Sunsky, and
then dig through their site and add some other interesting items, to make the shipping
cost worthwhile.
