    Who is using the HItec Lynx radio with the telemetry and what are the pros and cons with it?

    Thanks!

    We do and we love them. But they not selling them a reciever that has telemetry anymore. They dont know when they available either (as of 2 months ago anyway). If you find a used one you need the (Proton 4) .

    The Proton 4 is discontinued entirely. It is not coming back. That is the reason they were able to sell as many as they did and they work. Gotta wonder what they are thinking when they are a new line of radio's and they do something like that. There is no crossover. The GPS is gone.

    The Proton 4 receivers are still around for sale. You just have to look around. They are expensive though. They seem to be mostly overseas.

    We will be trying one of the GPS receivers today. We got five so we would have some backups.

    I bought 4  Proton RX's and when they get wet they seem to loose signal. Even after drying them and applying Corrosion X they never have worked reliably the same. When working what a great setup tool. Any GPS can record top speed but real time corner entry and exit speeds really help.

    Mic,

    I have this system, but haven't used it yet. Do you think if I did the corrosion X before hitting the water it might help?

    Ronnie.

      To me these receivers that receive and transmit signals (I have used Nomadio also) seem to be delicate when it comes to moisture. and range. I guess Corrosion X wouldn't hurt but if I had a new RX I would consider conformal coating.

    We bought 5 of them. No moisture problems yet. They work well for us. I may go ahead and spray mine too.
