    Hi,


    Would like to upgrade the Radio Gear to 2.4ghz and servos (steering + throttle) (currently HPI SF2 + SF1) for HPI Savage 25 nitro.


    I have considered a Flysky FS-GT3C and Savox SC-1256 (steering) and SC-1258 (throttle). Would these servos work fine with the Flysky Receiver (FS-GR3) the Transmitter comes with? Has anyone had experience with these together?


    What is the maximum range?


    Let me know if you have any other Recommendations.


    Thanks

    I am using a FlySky GT3B with my Savage, range is excellent and as for those servos they should be fine......

    Just from my experience the savox servo can be power hungery, even with NiMH packs i had to run a cap to keep from browning out. Just from steering I could see the power level lights drop

    I use the flysky FS-GT3C on all of my RC's and it is a nice radio. You can tell it's not a $300 radio but for $50 it is well worth the money.

    Once you get everything all linked up I would double check to make sure the fail safe is enabled on the receiver. Its just a little button you have to push but one of mine was not enabled when I received it.

    I've got the fs-gt3b and a savox steering servo, I don't have an issue, other then the savox being greedy with power.
