Now that i look closer at the pics, i can see it is not a "link" receiver. I dont think this reciever will link up with the TQ traxxas link tx. When purchasing these rx always look at the pics, if you see the 2.4ghz in larger font than the traxxas link print, it should be the right one for linking to the link tx.
Also the proper link type tx has five (5) channels not four(4) like this one. The 2.4 is in red type, and is located under the "traxxas link" type.
The two recievers are very similar, but iv'e only known the five channel to be the proper link type. I'm sure these rx can be linked to the 2.4ghz tx but am not sure how. Iv'e only owned and used the 2.4ghz TQ Link tx and rx.

Traxxas Receiver 2.4GHz Micro 4Ch
This receiver does not work with my Traxxas transmitter as stated. Granted it has sit in the package for a little bit before I used it so I doubt I can return it. However, this still does not follow the mantra that "It should just work"
