    I need help on a new Tx. I have drowned my first Phantom which I believe will be flying again soon with the replacement of all 4 ESC.

    I have also purchased a replacement Phantom Air Side only. Dollars are becoming an issue (cause she said so) I would like to purchase a new Radio that can control 2 Phantoms without pairing the radio each time. Not interested in huge range the stock one has been more than Ok. So maybe a Frsky, Hitec or similar price range. I would like to have the throttle go to centre I have now mastered that mode 2 thing and too old to relearn.

    I’m sure I could do the Rx installation but connecting to the Naza worries me.
    Are leads available or will I have to build them? Do I use the old lead and soldier on a new plug? If so where can I buy the plugs? How much is involved in telling the Naza to link with it etc. etc.??

    Hope an expert can help.

    don't know about other manufacturers, but i have a futaba 8j. i use one tx to control both my phantom and an F550. all i needed to purchase was the initial tx/rx and an additional rx for the second craft. the models are linked to the profiles i set up with my tx. it's great to be able to fly either model with out having to lug around an extra tx.
