Why go with a Tx-R? Glad you asked.
Start with speed and ease. Tx-R aircraft help you save time and get you to the flight line faster. They’re assembled and finished and all onboard electronics are installed …including an SLT receiver. Take a Tx-R out of the box, and you’re practically ready to fly. Now that’s fast and easy.
Add flexibility to the mix. With a Tx-R, you don’t have to buy a special radio to fly. That’s because all Tx-R aircraft come with an SLT receiver. And since they do, you have two very attractive choices.
One, you can fly a Tx-R with a 2.4GHz SLT radio system from Tactic or other manufacturer. Just look for a radio with an "SLT" logo; that tells you they’re 100% compatible with the receivers in all Tx-R aircraft.
However, you may already have a favorite transmitter and don’t want to give it up. That brings up choice #2: the Tactic AnyLink2. Attach it to your transmitter and it does something amazing: it broadcasts a true 2.4GHz signal that any SLT receiver can pick up. It works with virtually all transmitters, regardless of brand, band or modulation. And It not only costs less than a new radio; it costs less than many receivers.
For ease, economy, choices and more fun, there’s nothing like Tx-R.
