The Review

So, we are looking at the HobbyKing HK-GT2E radio, it appears in a few places as radios in cheaper cars as well as of course through HobbyKing.  Cost wise, it is WAAYYY at the budget end of the scale at about $28 Australian depending on sales etc etc. Recievers if you ever need to purchase more, are only about $9.  Personally I like how it looks, and it is light and easy to use.  Yes you don’t get the adjust-ability of a more expensive radio’s features etc, but you get the regular reversal of channels, dual rate, steering and throttle trim that you get on a regular DX2E for example.

It has just the 2 channels and takes 4x AA batteries.  The receiver, weighing in at 5 grams, is a 3 channel and is nicely compact, which is good as it went into my space poor Tamiya XV-01 rally car freeing up space that the Spektrum receiver was eating up.

Summing it up!

So, it works well, looks ok, has good range and is cheap.  What more do you really need in a radio for that extra car, rock crawler etc etc.  Ok, it was a little more with freight but I still consider it a good buy, and for some months it has been working flawlessly in my Rally Car.  So i’m happy to recommend them to anybody looking for an extra radio.  Would I race with it?  if I had to, sure why not, reaction speeds were fine, but it wouldn’t be ideal in the situation.

Is that I hear you cry? well i’m not sure what else you need to hear, but if you have any questions, feel free to post on here, or on facebook!
