I remove this receiver from my flying trex600 nitro due to a replacement and now using AR7200BX ok here's my question I'm trying to use this AR8000 on another model and it wound go into bind mode I have replace several sat and wire with deferent ones to see if it was my sat only the receiver goes into bind mode with the orange light blinking but not the sat now the receiver is dsm2 with a dsm2 sat I plug a dsmX sat and it goes into bind both the receiver dsm2 and the sat witch is dsmX go into bind mode and lights blinking I do the bind proses on the transmitter spektrum dx9 and it binds fine on 22ms I plug some servos and all looks to work normal I have tried in on both 11ms and 22ms and no luck when trying to bind with both been dsm2

Any one have any thought on this is us is it safe to run dsmX sat on a dsm2 receiver or is my receiver junk

The AR8000 receiver has ALWAYS been a DSMX receiver. The early ones were labeled DSM2 before Horizon was ready to announce the new DSMX.
So that is why you are seeing what you are seeing. You are good to go with a DSMX sat!

My other consern was one of the ar8000 receivers was working fine on my trex600 dfc with dsm2 sat and after I remove it to replace it with ar7200BX and now that I want to use it it's not working with a dsm2 sat only with dsmX I understand that it's if says dsm2 that it's always been a dsmX what I don't understand is that it use to work with dsm2 and now it won't it will only work with dsmX sat well it doesn't mater it works fine and it's better now specially with dsmX well thanks for the info

If you can locate the original sat that came with your ar8000 you should be fine because, like the original ar8000, it may have a dsm2 label on it but it is actually dsmx. You may be able to see an X on a little label under the sat cover. If you are not sure, do what you are doing and use a properly identified dsmx sat.

There is no way that your original ar8000 will work with a true dsm2 sat for sure.

Cheers,

Avoid mixing DSM2 sats with DSMX sats.
