    So I got a Taranis Q X7 what battery would you recommend. Also will I be able to charge the battery just by plugging in the controller or should I buy a separate charger, if so which one.

    This is a most efficient presentation of useful information that keeps the viewer interested. Short, concise, effective.

    Fantastic video. I’d recommend adding the Jumper T16 as well, it seems to be the go-to radio at the $150+ mark.
