Just a few shots of my Atom before and after. I used a full size vbar and receiver and switched to mini v and single line receiver.

Cleaned the install up a treat. The single line receiver was a bit tricky to assign the right channels but all set up now and works a treat. I always felt a poor relation to Spektrum but now its a level playing field. Single line receiver range 1000m so good for most applications.

As I'm electric all my helis will be going this route :-)

You are a lucky man. That is what I want to do on my Flybarless N9. Your setup looks nice. What is the receiver number? Looks to be a R6107. I hope this come state side.

Thanks Chris

Hi Chris,

It is a R6107SP, Robbe Rasst system but i figured it was basically Futaba and it is. Not here in the UK either so picked one up from Europe to try. No issues, linked straight away and used Vbar software to go single line and assign channels. I feel pretty lucky to get one so soon and really pleased with the results.

Are there any comments with this receiver and 90 size glow helicopters. Have you heard anything that would not suggest using it on a 90 size? Is there a different receiver for large heli's?

Thanks Chris

It's early days as far as these units go. I haven't seen and don't see any reason for not using one on a larger model. The limiting factor is range but with in excess of 1000m that's not an issue. It has a slightly longer aerial so it can be mounted on the outside/away from carbon frames. I personally wouldn't hesitate to use one on a large model.

Like all things new though there is always a risk. My thoughts were not with the size of the model but the fact the info is sent in parcels and thought could that get messed up. Time will tell and will get some airtime on the Atom before my next one arrives. Like flybarless single line/Spektrum/Serial bus it is the future and will become the norm.

I did the same with one of my Trex's. I'm really liking the integrated Spektrum RX's with the V-bar.
