R/C Direct for Berg Rx - Great product/service

I just purchased a Berg 5 receiver from R/C Direct http://www.rc-direct.com/ after hearing so many great things about the receiver. Great experience, I am truely impressed! I ordered the Rx on Monday morning by phone. Mike at R/C Direct was very helpful and told me that it should ship that day or the next. To my surprise the UPS guy showed up Tuesday afternoon with the Receiver. One day from order to delivery is way beyond expectations (granted we are only about 85 miles apart). The Berg receiver seems to be a great product, but I have not really used it yet. I guess a good receiver is one that fits your physical requirements (size & weight) and then you never notice it.

Thanks Mike

Keith

Good to hear Keith. I'd be interested to know what the shipping charges were. I've been interested in a Berg, but the price of the rx + tax + shipping could make that one expensive little receiver.

Thanks, Pete

With shipping at $6.25 & tax, it came out to a little less than a Hitec 555. This Rx is much smaller however and sofar has worked flawlessly. I also have a 555 which works flawlessly, I bought this one for its size. I was reluctant to go with a Single Conversion, but after reading Peter Berg's theories on Rx design http://www.bergent.net/ and various posts here (foremost Dual Conversion vs Single Conversion Receivers ) I was convinced of the quality of this Rx. I am always open to try somthing new, hopefully the Berg5 lives up to it's reputation. This is defenitly not a cheapy Rx. I wanted a top quality unit and I really beleive that you get what you pay for.

And the original point of my thread is that the service was friendly and shipping quicker than any expectations.
