Recently bought one of the Hobby King Spektrum 2.4Ghz compatible Rx’s. After hearing and reading mixed reviews I just ordered one, to see.
I have been pleasantly surprised by this Rx. It claimes to be a full range 6 channel receiver that works with Spektrum DSM2 radio. From Hobby King they cost about £8.50 but I ordered one from a seller on e-Bay because he had them in stock and Hobby King did not. Despite the Rx costing twice as much from the e-Bay seller I did not want to wait for delivery from Hong Kong.
The Rx bound to my Tx module first time. I installed it in a Chris Foss Wot4 Mk3 with 5 Jr 591 servos and a 4.8v nicad. The range test was excellent and encouraged by that I took it to the club today to try a flight. Because the Rx comes with no instructions I set it up as if it was a Spektrum using Spektrum leaflet. At the field I repeated the range test and as that was OK I decided to fly. I put half a tankful through the engine, climbing quite high and flying to the limits of our field (a disused airfield). No problems were percieved. Everything seemed to go well. No glitching, brown-outs or anything of that nature.
I will post more as more flights are flown.
