I talked with Losi Technical Support on two occasions and an R/C specialist at a local hobby shop about the 2.4 GHz Losi Conversion kit.  They all tell me to expect incompatibilities using this kit with DSM technology and my Spektrum DX5e transmitter with DSM2 technology. I will be contacting Horizon Hobbies to try and get an official recommendation.

The prototype model I mentioned earlier was run at my train club meeting a few weeks ago.  It performed well on and off for over an hour without discharging the batteries.  I used four 1.5 volt alkalines, since I haven't settled on the Lithium battery type I will ultimately be using.  In summary, in my opinion, RCC (Radio Command Control) is a practical alternative for running HO trains with several advantages, not the least of which is prototypical looking track, to match the great looking models we now have and have come to appreciate.  My next step will be speed control refinement and looking at smaller components for a better fit under my locomotive shell.

I tried earlier to post a photo, but lost the accompanying text as well.  I tried to "drag and drop", but this didn't work.  Can anyone advise how to put up a photo?
