Is there a way to use my Spektrum DX4S with a 4210 RX? I don't want to give up the brain functionality, but using a stock radio is not desirable. If I can't use the Spektrum, I'd even be willing to buy another radio, I know other options have gyros, but I really like AVC. Has anyone tried this yet?

Officially there are no spare channels on the dx4s (or dx4c) when using avc, its gain settings takes up both auxiliary channels. You can use avc with a 2 channel transmitter, like the dx2s, but the gains both get locked at 50%. I'm not sure how, but maybe you could somehow trick it into working like that?

Of course you could always bind it into blinky mode which turns it into a standard 4 channel receiver but you loose the avc. If it were me, I would keep the avc and set up a manual switch for the diff. I don't have a Nero but I can't imagine I would be switching that diff too often.

Thoughts for a manual switch?

tower has the following radios listed with the nero...maybe there is something about them that makes them work with the diff brain...not sure...maybe something in the radio specs can give you some clues ...
