I'm building up a Trex 500 and I'd like to see if I can use a R6106HFC versus the R6014HS.

The reason to ask is I would like to mount the receiver on the left outside of the frame opposite of the ESC that is on the right outside of the frame. The R6106HFC is very small versus the R6014HS and it would wire up very nice and about as far as I can get it from teh motor and ESC.

I have a GY520 and a BLS251 tail and from what I see this isn't an issue.

Can you folks see any issue?

I have been using the 6106hfc in a park flyer and it has been working fine. Haven't had a range issue even when the plane is 200m away. I have it right beside the esc with the power wires and servo wires cluttering right beside and above the rx in the cramped fuselage compartment. No issue till date.

However, there is only 1 antenna and it is not 2048 resolution like the 6014 or 608/6008.

I don't see how a 6106hfc will not work if you have the rx properly mounted. Might want to take a look at the 617fs if you don't already have the 6106hfc. It is a lot smaller than the 6014 and 6008. Just a little larger footprint than the 6106, but thinner and comes with dual antenna and extra port for bec input.

so it didn't take much to get the receiver working. All I needed to do was place the transmitter in 7ch mode and the receiver linked up fine.
