Either of those, Futaba 148 or these http://www.inwoodmodels.com/index.php?i ... er=product
and probably several others. To be honest, and if it was me (ie, I wouldn't want to be offering any advice or anything!) I wouldn't spend more than £8-10 each, or get lured into buying digital ones. Ball-raced ones should have a little more precision and wear more slowly. The chances are, when you're 'done' with the trainer, you'll move it on as a complete entity rather than want to re-use the bits and pieces, with the possible exception of the receiver.

Roy, if you haven't committed yourself already, again, NOT IN ANY WAY A RECOMMENDATION but Chris and I must have a couple of dozen of these between us without a failure...at this price its worth keeping a spare though...I did break a gearset on one in a crash.

Out of stock at Hobbyking and Giantshark, but model accessories seem to have stock :-)

My WOT 4 is full of these iirc

Just been reading up on these and can't find a bad review so I got these coming. Also brought a spare as they are proper cheap!

Perhaps you should try my Ripmax Jive - only had about 10 flights with an engine that must be more than 20 years old. I think that qualifies as 'New, Other'...

It lands easily too ;)
