When looking at costs, note this: I thought the XMod might be a good starter in the 1/28 realm ’cause it was just $50USD intially. But in a matter of just 2-3 weeks, I found that I’d paid out well over $150USD for Radio Shack proprietary parts to upgrade it to a merely competitive level. Could have bought an Iwaver or even a Mini Z MR-01 for less than that! (and can’t even sell it to recoup my costs – a BIG newbie mistake on my part.)

Not familiar with the Mini X…

Don’t overlook the Iwaver – a Mini Z clone proving itself to be measure up competitively to the Kyosho at about 1/3-1/2 the initial cost. And it’s fully compatible with MR-01 parts.
