I've recently made the switch to Airtronics - and seem to have ran into an issue. On their 7ch receivers (92674)channel 7 is the channel / batt. I assumed I'd be able to use all 7ch coming from spektrum - do I need 8ch receivers if I want to control 7 channels and have power wire in it's own channel or do you all put a Y in place and just use the "gyro" channel that just has a signal to get power in? Thanks in advance for any adivce / tips,

Steve

you can use all seven channels you just need to put your power to the receiver in with the gyro gain just pull the red and black wire for what ever it is you are using for power for example the 2 in 1 and plug it in to the gain channel of your gyro it just has a single wire usually the bus runs through the whole receiver on the same pins. I just helped a friend do this same thing on a Trex 600 and its working flawless.

Simply add a y connector on any channel. Send battery into the y.

Curious, which transmitter? Hang on, the airtronics radios feel sooooo locked on and fast!

I went with the 10g - I was cheap though and got the one with the 7ch, so not on FHS3 but it will still be quicker then my dx7

Question I'm confused about. On the throttle curves and coming from Spektrum my throttle curve went from 0 - 100. Well on the 10g besides the 9 point curve, the range for each point is -100 to 100. So when setting my lowest point do I use 0 or -100? I'm fearful 0 is really 50% throttle and with 820mm blades I won't have time to get out of the way in time. LOL Thanks again for the replies,

Steve

I replied to your other thread:

A value of -100 on the SD-10G is equal to a value of 0 on a radio that does not use negative numbers.

Another Airtronics receiver question: Is the blue light supposed to be solid? I assume so, but what if I have a flicker? Thinking I need to move it if this isn't normal. Thanks all,

Steve

An occasional flicker is normal. If it is constantly doing that try moving the receiver. Also, make sure your antennas (the white tips) are 90 degrees apart.

I noticed this in my hobby room, which also houses my high power wireless network router. As soon as I go outside the light stays solid. At the field I never notice a flicker. This Xsan be
Monitored as a sign that there is oversaturation on the signal path.

I have never experienced a signal or connection failure.

These receivers are hoppers, so a signal collision may cause it to blink the light but the system has moved to regain a clear communication path so fast that the control of the
Model is never interrupted. Milliseconds!!!

Blinks are perfectly normal.

The problem I had was a pretty consistent flickr - it was timed with the green lights on my BEC so definitely think it was power related. I do also have a 500mhz transmitter, eagle tree OSD equipment, two BEC's, another receiver on 2.4 running as well so you never know. I thought the flickr was normal though until I had some serious glitching at the field. Live and learn, luckily it wasn't as bad as it could have been. I did snap some frame halves so when re-wiring I'll put it miles from the rest this time
