I use a spektrum Dx6i, kind of overkill for tanks but is great for programming in exponential funtions for smooth, scale-ish starts, stops and turns. Uses 4 batteries I think, and Ive had the same ones in there for the last 2 battle days plus all my farting around at home Razz Also allows me to bind 10 models so I can have several SLU tanks (with their own recievers) that I can flip between with a couple button hits.
