I don't know what the hang up is with satelite recievers. I'll take the reliablity of a Futaba reciever anyday over a satelite.

It's been a reference to size and convenience which this rx fills that void.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

Hi guys

This new Rx is going to be great. Esp for small machines using FBL setups.

Can't wait, will order 2 or 3....

Regards
Paul

Any idea when the R6203SB will be available in the US? Guessing the same timeframe as the Futaba FBL system?

So only the servos listed on the sbus info link (on page 2 of this thread) will work with sbus-otherwise I can use this receiver with other servos but without the SBus linkup advantage?

You can plug any servo into the three normal channel ports. To use the actual S-Bus you need to use either S-Bus servos or use the decoder that allows you to use any digital or analog servo.

It is the SBD-1 decoder shown at the bottom of this page:

Got it-so the best way is to get all sbus hardware-best way to go if starting a new build soon.

If you are using the s-bus rx thru a poplar flybarless system, you do not need s-bus servos nor decoders...Just everyday digital and in some cases analog servos.

The only reason you would need S.Bus controller and S.Bus servos are when using in giant scale type aircraft or similar setups when you are ganging together multiple servos on multiple control surfaces and sending the single thru 1 or more S.Bus hubs. Then you need to tell the controller what servo is controlling what surface. For heli applications, the S.Bus RX and even when used with the GY-701 and CGY-750, servo connections are pretty straight forward. You can even use the S.Bus RX as a normal RX without even using the S.Bus part.

My comments were general and did not address using a FBL system.

Then take a look at the Hobbico video on how the S.Bus works with their jet setup display. Much more information on how thing go together and system capabilities.

Thanks. I've watched the video and I am actually using S-bus in one plane right now and plan to use it more in the future.

It is a pretty slick setup if you are into the giant scale stuff with more than 1 servo on more than 1 control surface. No more having to run super long extensions, just use a gang box close to were you need the servos and you are all set, using multiple gang boxes.

Can the BUS connection provide enough power to the FBL system if using, lets say 3x8717?

With a FBL system it's the other way around. The FBL system powers the servos with appropriate power connections to it. The SBus receiver receives its power from the FBL through the single cable connection.

I'm using a VBAR with an SBus receiver on two of my helis this way. One of them is using 8717's.

Hi Knud,
I can tell you that it provides enough power when using BLS451s.
The wire that the the S-Bus receiver comes with is something heavier than your standard servo lead.

When using something like the CC BEC Pro which has two output leads, you can plug one in to the S-Bus receiver and one in to the CGY750.

Bob,
We used the throttle port. It was open because our ESC was/is plugged in to the receiver.

If I didn't have an open port and I still wanted to do this, I would have used a Y connector on the throttle.
