| Don't be so cheap. A Berg is only $20 more than a GWS Pico receiver. Going | cheap on a 6 oz slow flyer is one thing.
No, even in that case it's a mistake. The GWS 4P is $30, a FMA M5 or Berg is like $50. The GWS can start flaking out if anybody else flies near you. It's just not worth it, even on a park flier.
(And the GWS 4P is still *way* better than the Hitec Feather ...)
| It's downright dangerous to be using one of those things in a | brushless zagi. The Berg is far and away the best in class.
Far and away? No. The FMA M5 seems to be comparable to the Berg-4*DSP, and the FMA FS8 seems to have all the features of the Berg-5 DSPII (and more.) (The Berg-5 DSPII is a good deal smaller, however.)
Berg seems to make fine receivers (I don't own any myself, but I've seen lots of people talking about them.) But the FMA receivers are top notch as well (and I've got lots of the M5s.)
They may very well be the best in the class. But far and away, no.
| Just get one and you won't be sorry.
Almost certainly true.
