Already comes with lipo battery! Amain won't change the ad after months of advertising wrong. Purchased their Protek battery for no reason and talked them into taking it back after their return policy expired. Great radio.

After about 40 min of test time I can feel the difference between the Futaba 4pl I used. Much more connected feeling and steering is in real time. No more turning early before a corner. I really like the 3 grips and trigger accessories that come with the controller for the perfect fit!

The price was worth the wait and upgrade!

Lipo battery is included

Crazy fast response from a nice solid feeling transmitter. The trigger and wheel are precise and smooth. The touch screen is bright and loaded with a zillion options. It comes with a 491 receiver and bought a 2nd at the same time. They're tiny little receivers, but VERY responsive. Everything about this radio are hed and shoulders above Futaba and Spektrum. However, the manual is absolute crap. It's well organized but written in the worst English you could imagine.

Very happy with the quality and feel of this transmitter. I can't wait to get it on the track for the first time this weekend. One thing that I did discover it to be sure to change the security serial number for each receiver if you don't want to have settings migrate from one model to another. A cool mod to add is a $12 wireless charging pad in the battery compartment. You can then just sit it on a wireless charger and it'll stay fully charged and ready to go.

LOVE it!

Upgraded to this radio from an MT44. The two Radios are very similar, but very different. The extra ergonomic adjustability of the M17 makes it worth it right there It comes with an included LiPo battery and the user interface is much easier to navigate and set with the color screen added. The increased response of the FH5 isn't too noticeable over FH4T but the ability to run the PGSXB servos in SXR mode is a game changer...It brings a new meaning to "connected" and really illustrates the difference between response rate and transit rate. The response rate is unsurpassed and the servos seem to operate much smoother and more accurate while running them on SXR.

Well worth the money spent. I have not owned a top-end transmitter since the Futaba 3pk. I got back into cars over a year ago and the feel from this TX is so smooth, and its response is instantaneous. Feels good in the hands and has extra grips to adjust if needed. Pair with a good digital servo and you'll have a killer system. Feature-rich but have not played around with settings as yet.

Really nice radio system. Would be nice if it came with a antenna-less receiver. As with all rc products it would also be nice to have a breakdown of what each function you can program does and what certain adjustments would work on different types of tracks. Overall high quality and comes with a detailed manual as far as instructions go.

All i can say wow!! This is the best radio i have owned. I did have the well i cant say there name.. but it starts with a S. It cost 499$ and felt very cheaply made! This this feels great and it by far better made and is so much easier to use and you feel like you have better control over your car! Definitely worth the money.

I wasn’t happy when I saw my expensive brand new transmitter delivered with the damaged box. Clearly one of your staffs dropped it before packing it up.
I requested it to replace so I sent it back. No idea when I am actually getting back my new transmitter.
It was my first purchase and definitely I am very disappointed.
