The RX/TX use RP-SMA connectors.

This tx and rx is sold in many places. FoxTech has their own sticker, but never the less it's the 100% same as those sold in many other asian stores.

The transmitter and receiver is surprizingly good. With propper antennas you can fly out to 10km with this setup without too much hazzle.

Run the receiver off a 2s battery though as the linear voltage regulator in there get's pretty hot when driven with a 3s battery.

I don't like the power connector of the transmitter too much as the one I have has a flakey contact. I would solder the wires directly onto the PCB to be save. Other than this the product is good. The alternative would be the 600mW ImmersionRC setup, but that's more power (alas more current draw) and does not mean more range as the rx of the FoxTech setup is said to have a higher sensitivity. Wether this is really true or not remains a topic of ongoing discussions, but fact is that the maximum ranges achvied with both systems hovers about the same (~15km).
