It's versatile - It's full range and use of the satellite is optional so you can use it for micros or anything - Has a hard casing like the AR7000

Whats the difference in capabilities of a 6200 VS 7000. I have 3 AR7000's in my 600, 600N, Planker. I need another full range spektrum rec.

If they have the same capabilities, why would they still make the 7000, I mean the 7000 is 95.00. A 6200 is 70.00. Why should I spend 100 if I can spend 70 with the same results.

Hi

I have 5 x 7000 Rx and 1 x 6200 Rx.

The 'problem' with the 6200 for me was that the servo plugs stick up vertically and the space required because of this made it impossible to fit where i wanted it in my mini titan. The 7000 is thicker, but compared to a 6200 with servos pluged in, it is much thinner....

This is not a problem, just something i didn't think about before buying it.

Yeah it might be nice if they'd come out with an AR6200e for those flatter fits

I have a 6200, as well as 6100's, 7000's and 9000's. I guess you don't get something for nothing. I imagine that there is probably a smaller bulk decoupling capacitor in the 6200 compared to the 7000 and 9000. This may make the Rx more sensitive to poor Rx power supply. Out of all my 2.4GHz flying, the 6200 is the only one associated with a crash, where a newish Rx power pack caused it a problem (it was in a 5 servo glider). The same Rx pack was fine with the previous 35MHz gear, and has now been replaced with a better (5 cell) pack. The Spektrum Rx's do seem very sensitive to their power supply.
