For Bashers, By Bashers!

2.4 GHz Transmitter Shootout -Price

What’s one of these radios going to cost? What’s the price?
This is one of those categories that may or may not be important to you. Some people don’t care what the price is, they must have the best radio! Some bashers are on a tight budget, and they just need something cheap while still being good. You can use the chart below to compare the prices. All prices were found at very common shops online. We didn’t go hunting for some hole in the wall one day sale price. In most cases you should be able to find the radios at this price or slightly lower at your local shop.

Just like in golf, the lower the score, the better.

Wow, $79 is a great price to be able to make the jump to 2.4ghz. When the first 2.4’s came out, it seemed like there was no way to be able to make the jump and convert your vehicles. To top if off, you can get Tactic receivers for $28! On the other end of the map, $499 is a LOT of money. It’s the price of a new RTR vehicle WITH a 2.4ghz radio system. That one hurts a little.
