I would like to have a system that i normally use for solo work, thats no problem, just an extra RX on the pano mount, but sometimes i would like to bring a second man for more advanced video productions.

Then of course i need an extra Tx as well, but, do i need a separate rx for that, or is it possible to hook up the other extra rx for that without to much fuss?

I have a futaba 14mz 2.4ghz at the moment, that one can hook up 2 separate FASST rx at the same time, but when using the other tx, will i have to reprogram the extra rx then, or will it automatically scan and hook up that if extra tx is switched on before the main system?

Boy what a complicated explanation

I don't know if I understand you correctly, so dissregard if I am way off. When you do things solo, you can control all functions through one TX and two RXs? If you want to use two TXs, wouldn't it be possible to use the trainer function. I belive you can select any channel/function to be controlled by the slave TX by the flip of a switch. Only dissadvantage is that the two TXs need to be connected by a cable. Just an idea.

Yes, 2 rx is just to avoid twisting the cables on a spinning pano mount.
You dont get extra channels in addition to the original 14ch by adding another rx, but you can split up the channels to avoid the cable issue...

A cable between two tx is not an option...

Yes it's simple to do. First bind the two rx's to the main transmitter then set the system up to operate like you want it to. Heli and mount as a combo.

Then use a second transmitter on another channel for when you use a cameraman and bind the mount rx to that trans then program the setting on that system to work the way you want for the cameraman.

This lets you only have to bind the rx on the mount to decide if you want the system as a solo or second man operation.

Hope this helps.

So that means it involves a little programming each time you want to switch between those two systems?

I guess the procedure will be the pairing between the radios then?

Now were talking

Worst case, when buying a second radio it would probably come with a rx as well, and a third rx wouldnt cost a fortune anyway...
The 8ch FASST rx are pretty small and weighs nothing...

Well, will try the twin installation for a starter

I have several different setups using 3 9303 radios for solo use and for crew use.The 72mhz is used on the mount for crew use.and as John stated above,I bind two receivers when using a solo pano type mount.

Daytona. I do this. Here's my routine:

Solo (Still) work:

I drilled holes and put locking bolts on both the pan and tilt axes so the mount would remain locked. I have a separate receiver, etc. on the mount but this isn't used when doing solo work. I run one long servo wire from my remote shutter trigger up to the receiver on the helicopter itself.

Video (two-operator) work:

I remove the bolts and plug in the mount-specific receiver. I have a separate transmitter for my 2nd operator to use. He can pan/tilt the mount as necessary.
