The transponders are smaller now, are they still compatible with the old ones?
The new transponders released in March 2016 are only half the size 21mm x 10mm with the same performance
What is the voltage range for the transponder?
Normally it will will be plugged into an empty receiver channel providing 5 volts, but if connected directly to a battery it is 13 volts max. It can run on 1s to 3s lipos

Both transponders are the same only the connector is different
Can I use the RC transponder for quadcopters?
You should use the transponder specifically made for quadcopters

Transponder not working
LED should blink once every 7 seconds. If the LED is blinking quickly it will not work. This may be caused by having transponder plugged in backwards. On some Mini-z cars versions transponder will not work and will require a direct connect to the battery. We provide an adapter cable for that purpose
Interface not found
You may need to install USB to serial FTDI driver (for blue decoder board). IF you are using the older red decoder it required a USB to serial cable and a USB driver for it.
