With all of the disappointment in the radio supplied with the new Kraton v4, please tell me what economical system would you replace it with? Not looking to break the bank.

I handled one in the store Saturday and the only fault I could find without actually running it was the wheel feels wrong. If I actually owned one, I'd find some foam and wrap it.
It has some cool features on it. I like that you can dial the power to lower settings.
I've had people wanting to run mine that have no experience and I'm always on 6s when that happens and I just won't turn them loose on it. If I could drop it back to 50% I would let them.

I've been out of the hobby for quite a spell and Spektrum was one of my go to radios along with Futaba. I still have an old Spektrum DX2.0 and I'm seriously considering swapping my stock radio stuff to it and see if I like it better.

It really depends on how much you want to spend, the spectrum dx5r/pro is nice for 300, they feel great and the model options such as name and all the trim settings is nice, but if you only want to spend 100-200 the spectrum dx5 rugged or sanwa/Airtronics m45xs or somthing is nice, but I realy would run the spectrum with all of the receivers and model options with ease of use, but for under 100 if u plan to use it Wih 1 truck just get a traxxas tqi without tsm, the tsm is really bad and glitchy if you change the truck it is on.

If they're still available, the stock Tactic's are sometimes available on Jennys RC, receiver included. Less than $30 + shipping. Most who have the V3's like them. Simple and strong.

These cars ran the ttx300 for 3 years. There's no reason to have to deal with the super cheapo Spectrum system garbage. I already bought 5 Tactics for the future & I'm definitely going to use 2 of them in the coming month.

When Jenny's runs out I will have several of these state of the art RTR radios that will be available for sale!
