I have a old Esky 450 and a Spektrum DX7 that I am familiar with. I found a flybarless T-rex 500 with a Futaba CGY750 that I thought I could bind to my DX7. Spektrum says that the Dx7 and the CGY750 are not compatable.

The T-rex 500 has a Futaba R6203sb receiver. I really don't want to spend $750 on a new transmitter. Which used transmitter should I be looking for? Would the Futaba 8J S-FHSS work?

Thanks.

If you want to stick with spectrum futaba makes this.-

You don't need to spend near $700 to get a futaba TX that will work with the 750. The 7C works fine and used ones should be about $100. For a current radio the 8J will work as well with fhss.

If you go the used route make sure the 7C is 2.4. It was first made as a FM system.

The 7C binds fine with the 6203 and you won't need to remap any channels. The only thing you lose is remote gain setting for the head but you won't change it much if at all after setup.

Very bad... It is not a good choice having spektrum and futaba stuff.
It is expensive to have both technologies as a beginner.

My advice... Get rid of that spektrum gadget and get a good transmitter... I mean, futaba.

Gy750 is a high gamma FBL equipment. To get full function from R6203sb, you need a high end futaba fasst transmitter.

Either way, get an orange spektrum receiver and sell the R6203sb.

I understand your point but you need to clarify your expectations...

Grow with futaba or grow with spektrum... Not both!

Saludos cordiales,

What are you talking about. The 750 works just fine with a basic, 7C or 8J, tx. You don't want both futaba and spectrum RXs and TXs but if you want this one 750 to work with what you have the $50 adapter, with a spectrum receiver, will get it going.

Thank you for the info about the adapter! I did a search and found a 3 part "How to" on youtube about how to set it up with the DX7.

I have a feeling I'll be back with more questions...
