Can anyone answer this. I'm thinking of changing my JR 9X2 35mhz to 2.4 using the AR 9000 receiver. I fly a Vario R22 and Hughes 500 both gassers. Are there any issues regarding lack of signal while flying large helicopters given the large metal side frames and base plates. I'm a bit concerned that with these receivers having short aerials loss of signal could occur when the reviever is masked at certain attitudes.

You can add additional satellite receivers (for a total of 2 satellite rx's) on the AR9000.

Shadowing shouldn't be an issue.

Also, the remote extensions come in various lengths, up to 36 inches

The Spektrum AR9100 is a purpose designed receiver for large aircraft.
It uses 3 satellite receivers, for an even broader coverage area.

For added peace of mind, check out the Spektrum Flight Data logger

Dave, I'm flying the Vario 500 turbine with DSM2. Good placement of the satellite receivers will eliminate any concerns about metal side frames and other RF obstructions. And as Dood mentioned, using a Flight Log will tell you exactly what the RF performance of your configuration is like. A Flight Log is a must have for anyone running 2.4. The information it provides can give you true piece of mind- the kind you get by confirming your RF link is as good as it can be.
