    Many thanks. I just wanted something engine-ish to cover the servos, and having "engine detail" is worth scale points.

    The rated voltage for the GT3B is 6VDC. People have said they run theirs at 7.4VDC, but they are knowingly risking their electronics. The nice thing about those RXs is that they are very inexpensive,...
