I'm curious--

If I got the synthesized module version of the 9C super, would I be limited to always using a synthesized receiver in my future helis, or could I use standard receivers as well? A friend led me to believe that the synthesized module is only compatible with the Futaba synth rx....

The beatings will continue until moral improves

I'm pretty sure they work with any futaba receiver , be it synth or standard crystal. But last I heard futaba synth tx are not compatible with berg receivers. Hitec synth communicate fine with berg receivers though. So if you use a futaba synth I believe you are limited to only using futaba receivers.

I have a 9Z synth, and I have used it with my Futaba synth rx, as well as Hitec FM rx's.

Later, Guy

I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a synth module for my 9C recently. I had bought the matching 319 reciever a month or so previously in preparation for getting the module. Works perfectly with my R148DF receivers.

On a 9Z
Hi,

I needed to buy a non-synthetized module for my 9Z when I started to use a berg 6 channels receiver on my hornet.

Receivers
Speaking about the 9Z synth (Haven't tried the 9C one yet), I found that the Single conversion receivers are hit and miss. The Hitec electron 6 has been a good consistent performer for micros (it's dual conversion though). All the futaba receivers work fine too.

You should be able to do a search and find various articles, but no official list anywhere.

Good Judgement comes from Experience. Great Judgement comes from Bad Experience.

Its only certain series of the Berg RX that will not work with Futaba Syn. I cannot recall which series (i think its the most recent) but the Berg website has the information.

Someday, I might put a cute statement here.

I tried a futaba 9C synthesizer with an old Berg 5 RX on my Hornet last week and it worked just fine. Range check was normal and no problems whatsoever in flight. The next time I see someone with a 9C synth I'll try it with my Berg 4 stamp RX and see how it works.

I got a fever! The only prescription is MORE 6HV

I Futaba synthesizer modules on both of my 9C transmitters. No problems on PPM or PCM Futaba and FM Hitec receivers. It also works on the Expert single conversion 6 channel receiver on my T-Rex. I have not tried it on the Berg receiver.
