"Spektrumized" 6102, and DX6 converted to 72mhz from 6102 components
I am selling a Spektrumized 6102 and a 72mhz conversion DX6. I have included photos to show the clean conversions of both radios. They function perfectly, but the 6102 has a crack near the antenna, and near the base corner (both hangar rash, not related to the conversion). I wanted to be up front about this so there are no surprises. This sale includes a pair of Spektrum 6ch rx's, the DX6 manual (no manual for the 6102), and the charger for the DX6 (which also charges the 6102). If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.

Price is $450 shipped in the continental USA.

Thanks!
Greg

I have minor technical concerns about this hybrid approach compared to the basic Spectrum system. What does concern me is proliferation of home brew systems that will lack any FCC credibility and may generate insurance issues with AMA and others. Maybe the Spectrum technology has proven itself to be as safe and reliable in park flyer service as 72 Mhz or maybe it has not, but now I hear of guys shoving them into nitro birds, etc. Sooner or later there may be an unpleasant event with the R/C application of Spectrum technology and it would be good to at least be in compliance with certification standards, etc---does a hybrid satisfy this test?

here's the AMA stance on this conversion...
Recently, there has been a flurry of activity with regard to various modifications of the Spektrum RC radio systems. Some of the modifications involve rather complicated issues and we're working diligently to research them completely to assure compliance with Federal Regulations, safety and standards that are being developed for the usage of the band. AMA is doing our best to balance the interests of all involved.

In particular, the removal of the Spektrum RF section and it's antenna from the DX6 and replacement in the JR6102 has captured the interest of many. After much research with all parties involved, including review of FCC regulations, it has been determined that it is legal to make the modifications under the following conditions by FCC regulations. The complete Spektrum DX6 RF section can be removed along with it's original antenna and placed into the JR 6102. The FCC identification number from the Spektrum DX6 transmitter must be transferred and prominently displayed on the new transmitter as well. Although the AMA and the manufacturer, Spektrum RC, do not recommend, nor encourage this practice, it falls under FCC regulations as acceptable under the preceding conditions.

Anything more than this immediate modification is beyond this scope of this statement and is being dealt with on a case-by-case basis and will be pursued as resources allow.

Thank you for posting that Rob. Saved me the trouble.

It is a fine system, I am just not going to be using it for my current projects, thus the sale. No need for this to collect dust.

Taking offers....

You'll have to take the DX6 label on the back of the transmitter (peel off carefully) and place it on the JR 6102, thus creating the XP6102DX as per FCC reg.

If you do not, the Tx will be deemed illegal for AMA/FCC use.

Just a heads up as I ran into this when we were in the FCC testing phase about 1/2 a year ago.
