Hi guys

I am in the process of switching to Futaba.

What Rx would be best on a 450 Pro?

Futaba says the R6016HF is ideal for park fliers and 450 size helis and it sounds great, but the short antenna would hardly stick out the rear of the frames..... i was thinking of mounting the Rx between the frames, lying flat on the lower frame plate.

The R6016HFC has a much longer antenna and would stick out well clear of the frames. I couldn't find the actual length of the HFC's antenna, anyone have one to measure? Is it too long?

Anyone used these Rx's in a 450?

Thanks guys

Regards
Paul

I use the HFC in my 500 and it works great. The antenna has lots of length to be mounted almost anywhere on these helis.

If my wife had another job I'd have more Helicopters

I have a R606FS in one of mine and it fits fine (stands on side with antennaes out the back) and it works great. Make sure either way that you mount it that you can get to the binding plot easily if need be.

Perfect practice makes perfect

I have just cut over to the 6106HF on my 450 pro it it fits like a glove and performs very well. No problems at all.

Just make sure the little antenna sticks out the back of the pro a bit and you should be fine.
