    NO, you will need a 6 or more channel radio, I don't know of a 5 channel. It's better to buy more than you need now, because you might want to add later.

    Yes, number of channels on the RX doesn't matter. The failsafe goes inline with the throttle servo.

    You can run the Venom speedo unit with a 2 channel RX.
