    I wonder if the module could be removed from something like this

    i can find new controllers but not receivers, i expect they are eol

    found some in stock, so 27mhz hardware must still be in production somewhere.

    It has got to be worth a go - although I suspect that its specification will be nothing like as good as the Radiometrix module.

    I tried to order one, just now, for trials but the site wouldn't take my order. (I have an account with Aliexpress but maybe they are out of stock now?)

    If anyone gets one and tries it in a sub perhaps they could report back.

    they are still showing as in stock, it could just be aliexpress having issues. I agree that I also doubt these will be as good as the radiometrix modules, those are essentially industrial radio modules being compared to a cheap toy from china. but from what i can tell, they are 4 channels plus some aux functions with crystals to select proper channels. the main problem is the lack of servo output as its designed to run a tank. i believe there is a separate rf module in the case that might be used as a standalone receiver or can be used with an arduino to generate servo output from its output.

    or just build a sub that somehow mimics a tank Radio ideas -27Mhz - Page 2 1f600
