My Trex 150 DFC is on it's way!!!
Wow !!! Just watched a couple different YouTube out-of-the-box vids and don't see them pulling the Spektrum sat Rx out of the box. So I emailed the video author and he said the 150 DOES NOT come with the Spektrum receiver.

Everyone on the forums has been posting that this is DSMX ready to fly. I ordered mine and if I knew I needed a Rx I would have bought one. Now when it shows up Friday I can't do a thing with it (paperweight, maybe) until I figure out which receiver to buy.

Nothing in the on-line users manual lists a Rx part number. Anyone have an idea what sat Rx this 150 needs?

....bumped, and I feel dupped....

I see various Spek sat Rx on-line but they are different sizes and different power requirements, so I don't understand how any will work.
I'm going to try my Blade 450 3D Spek receiver when my 150 arrives Friday. Hopefully the size and connections will work. I believe it is a Spek AR6115e.

lyonsd58,
No, you need a Spektrum REMOTE (a.k.a. satellite) receiver; not a full receiver. Like: Spektrum DSMX Remote Receiver

For the 150, that would be a totally useless proposition as you will be unable to connect it to the heli.

To fly the 150 using a Spektrum or JR 2.4 GHz system requires a SATELLITE such as this:

It can be DSM2 or DSMx, doesn't matter.

The supplied 3-wire extension cable plugs directly into the satellite.

If you were to want to fly it using JR DMSS radio, you need the DMSS version of the satellite.

I bought the Spektrum 9645 DSMX sat Rx tonight from HeliDirect. For an extra $10 for FedEx, I should have it by Friday when the 150 is suppose to arrive. But it makes the real attractive new 150 that is only 1/3 larger than the difference between my mCPxBL and 130x, what was a $238 heli, now a $273 heli, not including shipping and batts.
I sure hope this heli matches all the forum hype.

fwiw..

Lemon dsm sat works fine so far, fits nicely under the gyro....Mounting a Spektrum sat may be an issue unless it has case removed....

Quick tip when getting your Trex 150
Hey Guys and Gals,

From the field some are saying that they had zip tied there wires to secure them in the event of a crash. Well this could be a good idea. So as a tip, before you start flying you may want to do this so that the wires in the event of a crash don't touch the motor.

Well this is just a tip to help prevent damage in the event of a crash.

Take care and hope you get lot of flights.

Best Regards,
Jeff Fassbinder

So testing these, I'm taking it no one crashed and figured a solution to fix the issue?

Think I'll hold out and wait for a V3

Got mine
I just got mine. Wow I'm so happy. It flew like a 500 very very smooth it wasn't twitch at all. My tail wagged a little but I just wanted to enjoy flying it without having to stop and change the gain. But I know I can program it out it was very minute. Now can anyone bring me a charger. Still waiting on my spares

Uh, that post is VERY misleading. It left off the most important part..

"Multiple reports of the tail motor falling off as the result of a CRASH".

Unless you take the time to go to those four links posted and READ them, you'd think the motors were falling off, in flight, for no good reason.

Trex 150
Well I found a way to charge my lipo while waiting on my spare parts to arrive. I took a 130x connector not the stock box charger it's a cable the plugs into my charger 1 side goes in the balance port the other on the lipo. I took the lipo connector broke it down to just the pins and manually pluged them in 1 by 1 it charged and balanced fine
