Hi All

Is there any problem using a DX7 TX & AR7000 RX with non digital futaba servos?. I was told that the servos used MUST be digital, but I cannot see this written anywhere

Cheers
Russ

servos

They claim the DX-7 works with all servos, all makes, all models, digital and non-digital. Go to horizon's web site and watch the AMA videos.

Whoever told you that is wrong. I'm running it with analog servos with no problem, there are no limitations to what you can use.

Yeah, whoever told you that doesn't know what the hell they're talking about. Any servo can be used with any RX.

Thanks all. I did think it was a little far fetched!!. I wonder if the LHS told me this because they were hoping to sell me some new digital servos?

That would be my guess. Sometimes I wonder why hobby shop guys say the things they do.

I was in my local shop and got into an argument with the guys there (that I've known since I was a kid) about the DX7. The argument was about the total number of Spektrum users that can fly at a time. They wouldn't believe me when I said that the max number was 40. There are 80 frequencies in the 2.4Ghz band and each DX7 (or DX6) uses 2 frequencies, hence 40 users at a time. They're telling stuff about the frequencies rolling constantly and you can have more than 1 TX using the same frequency, just all kinds of nonsense! They even went so far as to call the tech support line and the guy on the phone told you could have an infinite number or TX on at the same time! When I got home I went on the Spektrum site and printed up a section of the FAQ's and took it down to them! It even mentions the fact that if there are any devices such as wireless routers or the like which are on 2.4 Ghz that it will decrease the available users.

I think what the tech support guy meant was that there could be any number of TX's on at a time w/o causing interference to the guys that are flying, not that all of them could fly at the same time. It just blew my mind that anyone would think something so ridiculous!

MikeC...

We are getting the same line of false info here. A lot of the guy's in two clubs here, have grabbed onto misinformation and run with it. So it's not just in your neck of the woods. We have our nut cases here too! I haven't seen anyone purchase this radio yet. I'm going to buy one in the coming weeks (if all goes well) and I hope to be able to put the 'disinformation train' on the rails to derailment.

Later...

Scott!
