T-Rex receiver?!!
A question for all t-rex owners...

opinions and experiences welcome!

I have ordered a t-rex kit last week (still have not received it) which comes with everything but tx and rx.

The question is however which receiver to get. I ordered a micro receiver which I received today and in the instructions it hints that the range is limited and you should fly the model close to you (around 50 feet). Is this normal?

The receiver I got is a century 6ch micro which came off a hummingbird.

Should I be buying a new one to be on the safe side or is this normal?

Thanks!

DK

Hi dkourk

My past experiences with ppm receivers on electric models especialy with century receivers is i would not use them too glitchy i would not chance my model
Use pcm the jr 770s is a great receiver and value for money and of course piece of mind knowing you have the best to do the job
The world is round you can run but you will always end up where you started from

I think I will put an order for a JR micro...

now the question is if i should go for the FM or PCM one since I assume you do fly the t-rex a lot closer than you would a nitro...

Also series 6 or series 7?

Any one out there who has both and would be kind enough to share experiences?

thanks,

DK

I think I cannot use the Futaba receivers. I have a JR transmitter so will have to stick with a JR or Hitec transmitter, or even one of the universal less known ones...

dkourk,

Your choices are "PPM" or "PCM" ... both are FM.

What's wrong with a Electron 6 RX.
I have heard good things about them and bad,,,maybe just a setup problem for most RX glitches?

Dkourk,
As far as I know , it's only in the States where JR/Futaba use different "shifts" ,
I have often used Futaba receivers with my JR transmitter (UK 35Mhz) . However , I would opt for a PCM receiver which does indeed mean a JR one , with the R770S being the only candidate .
At the end of the day , it gets dark .
