U-Review: FlySky FS-GT2 Radio System

Overall, the FlySky FS-GT2 is a great radio system, but it does have its share of drawbacks. The radio still requires eight AAs instead of four AAs like most modern 2.4GHz systems. Also, the steering wheel is where FlySky noticeably cut corners as the rubber grip has a tendency to slide around when in use. Things like this are expected when the price is so low, yet thankfully this is the only corner I found to be cut!

The receiver is small compared to other receivers I’ve used. This makes it easy to mount. The radio features include steering trim, throttle trim, servo reversing for throttle and steering and even steering dual rate–a feature commonly left out on budget radios. Without a doubt, the best part about buying the FSGT2 is the price! This radio with receiver will only set you back around $20 depending on retailer. This gives a new meaning to budget-minded system!

The FlySky FS-GT2 2.4GHz radio system is a great choice for most weekend warriors and should bring nothing but smiles.  Keep up the good work, FlySky!–Carson Wick, Texas

  1. The one thing i have noticed with lower end radio systems is a lack of range. Do you have any info on that? As far as the rubber grip sliding around, you could take it off and put some electrical tape, or double sided tape under it to stop that. Just saying, its something thats an easy fix.

    1. I have used a couple of cheaper radios (FlySky’s) and never have had any problem with them. Actually I get more range than I can possibly use out of my FSGT3B. I had a $120 Traxxas TQi 4 channel, and it wouldn’t go over 150ft. without cutting out. So I think most budget radios are more than fine for weekend warriors like myself!

  2. I have no problem with range on my cheap, 2.4ghz turnigy radio. I use it for helicopters and planes where distance is a concern.

  3. I have 2 of these for my MTs and they havent given me any problems at all…the receivers are really cheap on ebay too.

    1. Same with me. I have four or five FlySky receivers lying around and they all work great, especially when you consider that they are only $7-10 a piece from most retailers. This is why I try to stay away from most name brand high end radios, because even though I wouldn’t mind too much spending $200 on a Spektrum DX3S, I definitely don’t want to have to spend another $40-80 on each receiver.

  4. Im having quite a serious problem with mine, the signal only seems to reach 15m on fresh batteries, what the hell is going on?
