Coming in mid-August is Spektrum’s latest sport receiver, the SR415 ideal for anyone wanting a robust 4-channel receiver that can handle the worst nature and the RF environment you can throw at it. It’s built around frequency-agile DSMR technology that delivers superb range and response, especially in places where a lot of 2.4GHz systems are in use at once. This signal security is complemented by a fuel-proof case and a waterproof Reliakote coating that seals internal electronics from the elements and other corrosives like nitro methane and motor spray.
