Best budget remote is a Mini…they are $20 on eBay and AliExpress, and it’s got amazing reliability. Only catch is it used AA batteries

ITs definitely the best ~$50 remote. Three speed modes and a battery level indicator, a good feel in the hand, lovely throttle wheel, UART or PWM operation, i like them a lot.

You pay for quality, look no further.

as in signal drops due to radio noise? they behave better in my area than any other remote ever has, and i used to get a lot of signal drops.

Yup I’ve seen several disconnects in a busy city, not worth it

Also look at the Kaly and LaCroix group pages, it’s a fairly common issue

I think quality control may be the issue with vx1. Some are rock solid. Others, not so much

Yeah the vx1 battery indication is compatible with 8-12s if I’m not mistaken
