Sanwa/Airtronics M17 FH5 4-Channel 2.4GHz Radio System
I’ve lived my whole life thinking that other lower cost radios were just as good. Purchased this and could instantly feel the faster response and smoothness.

I went from using a mid-grade radio to using the Sanwa M17. You are completely connected to the car, hands down a game changer.
It's like dropping the mic and walking away with attitude....

Sanwa/Airtronics M17 FH5 4-Channel 2.4GHz Radio System
Great transmitter probably more than I need but I like it. What I don’t like is the fact that the site says it needs a 1 cell Lipo to complete. So naturally I ordered one with it. then come to find out it already has a Lipo in the transmitter. 45 dollars I didn’t have to spend not cool!!!

This is the cream of the crop transmitter. My last control was a Spektrum DxR 3 pro. The fit and finish are not up to par compared to the M17. The connectivity between the transmitter and car make it seem more connected and responsive as well. I see why all the racers choose this controller. I am very happy, with it and cannot wait to get some laps into at the local tracks.
