--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have just gotten a used DX-7 from a friend. I have also aquired a handful of recievers.... 5 AR6000's and one AR7000.

My model fleet is as follows....

1. Trex 450SE helicopter

2. Multiplex Fun Jet

3. Multiplex Microjet

4. GWS Slowstick - heavily modified!

5. E-Flite Ultimate Biplane ( foamy )

6. .46 Sized Ultrastick glow plane

Also have a Aspire motorized Glider, a Balsa Extra 300 profile parkflyer plane... But until I get more recievers these will have to sit on the shelf for a while.

Anyway, I was planning to use the AR6000's in all the models listed above except for the Ultrastick, which I was going to use the 7000 in.

So question #1 is..... Will the AR6000 be good for the above listed models? I suspect it will be fine in the Biplane and Slowstick, but the jets and the Trex I am wondering about. The Trex is never flown too far away from me, but the jets cover some ground fast, and they do get flown a good bit away, possibly 1500 feet away I'd imagine.

Question #2 is.... Does it matter on the AR6000 how the two little antennas are positioned? I mean would it help if they were bent a certain way, or would it help or matter if they were totally inside a foam model or would having them stick out slightly, would that help with range?

Question #3 is.... what is different about the AR 6000 over the other Spektrum recievers? My friend who I got the DX-7 off of just got a Spektrum module for his JR 9303 and said it wouldn't work with those recievers - so he gave them all to me, he had several of them! - Are they not as good?

Last Question is.... besides the fact that some recievers have two antenna stations - like the AR7000 - what are the differences between the different recievers and what makes them good or bad compaired to the others?

Thanks a million to all who take the time to read and respond to my post.

#1 Yes, everything except 6

#2 The AR6000 antenna placement is not critical. But let them lie at 90degress to each other if possible. Inside the fuse is fine.

#3 The AR6000 is DSM1. Whilst it works with the DX7 and X9303, it does not work with the Modules - they only support DSM2. The AR6000 is a parkflyer receiver.

#4 The AR6000 and AR6100 are for park flyers. The AR7000, R921 and AR9000 have superior path and frequency diversity performance and can be used in any model.

So using the 6000 in all my planes except the big glow plane is okay?

Paul...

I never heard that before.. and it should be shouted if that is the desired position of the 6000's antenna... it comes with them in a straight line.. we should bend one 90 degrees off in a direction.. obviously we do this with the aux. receivers on the 7000/9000's... but I never heard it stated to bend the 6000's off to a side..

edited.. paul had it covered
