    I was wondering what receivers will work with the stock radio other than the all in one that comes standard and the v3 that comes on the barrage. Will a spektrum work? Or any other brands?

    I swapped over the stock guts from my Barrage, both the ESC and the receiver. I didn't even rebind, just used the Barrage's radio. The Temper's 2-in-1 went into a 1980s Radio Shack monster truck, which is much more fun with modern electronics.

    My Barrage is now running a Spektrum receiver and an Axial AE-5 ESC.

    So you're running a spektrum receiver and the stock ECX barrage radio? I know the temper radio is a v2 and the barrage is a v3 so I wonder if it will work with a spektrum receiver.

    No, sorry. I use a Spektrum DX4C with the Spektrum receiver. As far as I know, DSM-based radios won't talk to the ECX FHSS receivers.

    FHSS is what ECX uses? If that's the case... a Futaba 3PV should work. Or any FHSS transmitter.

    I always heard the ECX rx/tx were spektrum based but if they are futaba, even better. Can anyone be a for sure on which? Or neither?

    Just to make sure I am understanding you correctly, the transmitter from the Temper will work with the receiver from the Barrage? I am looking to put in a better ESC in my Temper and was looking into a cheap radio set up. I like the Temper transmitter just fine and if it works with the Barrage receiver, that would be a pretty cheap route to go. It's only 16 USD

    Sadly, no! I was hoping that was the case, but after emailing horizon hobby about it they said no. The v2 radio that comes with the temper, and a few other vehicles, is only compatible with the all in one ESC/receivers. So no go on just buying the ECX receiver that comes in the barrage and using the old temper radio.
