    We've been flying these. DSM2/DSMx compatible for Spectrum TX's and priced at $26 for a 5 pack plus about $3 S&H. They are classified as full range receivers.

    I give them to club members as gifts and for attaboys.

    The pinless version of the RX is unbelievably small, thin and light. With a 200mAh LiFe battery and sub micro servos soldered in, I believe a 1oz 3 channel flight pack is possible for .010/.020 stuff.

    Ive just ordered a 5 pack of Lemon rx's (end pin), all the reviews seem really good and they really listen to their customers. I even made a recommendation to clarify some other products on their website and they have already started to update said items.

    lets hope they go okay
    Dead stick landings are the easiest. Doesn't matter your attitude, elevation or airspeed - it's all down hill from there.

    Isn't it just amazing?

    The first RC receiver I ever saw was built on a perf board about 4" x 6", had one or two vacuum tubes and was suspended by rubber bands attached to each corner inside a large cabin fuselage. The batteries needed to drive and heat the tubes were pretty substantial. It was single channel.

    I looked closely at the pinless model of the Lemon --- since I seldom fly more than 3 channels on the smaller planes, I could add straight header pins as needed. The 90 degree header is pretty substantial and adds over half the weight to the RX. As noted, a 1 oz. airborne 3 channel system is well within our grasp.

    I have never had a problem with my AR400 receivers from spektrum. I tried the orange receivers this weekend and crahed the plane on the first flight due to lose of signal. Others here have reported good results with them so maybe I just had a bad one. The Lemon recievers look like a great deal but I'll let others be the test pilots on those for a little longer before I try them.

    I'll look out for a review. I was going to get me some but the word LEMON gave me pause.

    Receiver quandary

    See post #4. Also down lower in this forum.

    No sane North American would name a product line Lemon, but I doubt these guys have even heard of Ralph Nader.

    I haven't powered any of mine up yet, so I don't get to comment. But they sure are small and cute. They sure cost less without 80% margin for packaging, importation, marketing, etc.

    Will they work with serveral transmitters or are they limited to a certain kind? I have heard several good recommendations for them.
