Thank you

Hi There

The RC5HL lite and RC5HL both operate EXACTLY the same firmware on the main processor. Both will provide the conversion of proper R/C radio protocol to the Heng Long format. If you have a Heng Long tank and plan to operate it as is and add no other functions then this basic conversion as provided by the RC5HL Lite is all you will need.

If you wish to add extra functions to your tank like a rear light, a servo for recoil, or for that matter servos in general or any other light. If you wish to turn on/off relays and maybe block the track recoil function. Then there are extra components, an extra microcontroller and greater amperage provided on the RC5HL. The RC5HL can only operate extra functions if you add them in and more importantly know how to add them in. Again if you do not plan to do anything extra then there will be no difference between the two units.
