Will my spectrum DX4e work with mini apprentice S. BNF
Asked by Jack on 12th October 2018

Yes, that should work fine so long as it has a DSMX logo

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

Can the BNF apprentice be used with a buddy as an alternative to safe mode
Asked by Ken Fretwell on 12th May 2019

Hi Ken, these are BNF, so you will pair this to an existing Spektrum DSMX transmitter.

If the transmitter you use has a buddy feature, then sure - that should work fine.

My husband has just purchased one of these and wants to put a 1800 mah battery in it instead of the 1300 mah battery what 1800 mah battery would you suggest. He watched a YouTube video and the man on there suggested the 1800 mah battery but don’t know which one Please reply ASAP Thank you
Asked by Roberta on 3rd July 2019

The only recommended battery is the 1300 EFLB13003S20

They do list an 1800 3S, EFLB18003S but we've never tried one of these so couldn't confirm if it would fit sorry!
