DX7 Receiver's second location
I am just finishing up my 450SE and was looking for a clean location for the tiny second receiver. I placed in on the side of the tail servo doing some test fitting. I want to know if you all think this will cause any type of interference or glitching issues? This just seemed to work out well for placement and gets the angle of the second antennas perpendicular to the others. Any thought??
Thanks
Greg

The instructions state to try to get 2 inches or more distance between the antennas on the main rec to the secondary one. So I was trying to achieve that. I am taking it with me tomorrow to the club I go to and have a bunch of guys look it over before the first flight.

Get your self a 6100. For $50.00 it's worth it. It's so small you can tuck it anywhere and their's only one to worry about.

I put one on my Trex and I can't believe how small they are.

The size of it really amazed me. Smaller than an electron 6 by about 20% to 30%

Amazing!

I've heard of people using the 6000 with the DX7 but the 6100 was made for it so I got that one.

Greg,
I have the 7000 main Rx under the Lipo carrier. The second Rx is down on the bottom under the ESC. Works fine. Have also flown it with the 6100 mounted under the Lipo with the antenna' running fore and aft.

Do yourself a favour and get the 6100, in size it is much more suitable for the little rex, save the 7000 for your future 600 or whichever heli it is you get....

Here is a pic of the 6100 in the little rex.

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

I have my secondary rx on the gear leg on my 600. On my 450 I'm running the spektrum rx that just has a single dipole antenna. The gear leg trick lets me get it away from the entire heli, down into clear air and 90 degrees to the other RX.

With the Spektrum receivers, you can actually stack them right on top of the esc without glitching. So really you can mount it anywhere you want, which I love!

I learned this from the designer of the Spektrum system.

Why not just put it in the front, under the battery. mine fits there with no problems, and i turned it 45 deg to the main one, which is located in the rear part of the frame.

I was afraid to put to close to the motor or ESC. From some of the posts it seams that that doesn't matter. I have managed to get 4 flights in just hovering right now so far so good.

Fair play to you for being careful on installation, but i have had no problems nor expect any using DX7,even locating near electronic or risk items in models, its hard to believe that all the problems of yesterday have suddenly gone, but they have. (i hope)
good luck.
