    Whitch Airtronics 2.4ghz reciever for 3D foamies?.

    Hallo all,

    I will be buying the SD-10G from Hobby People and i will be using it for Pattern,3D and indoor 3D foamies.

    I will be buying the Fancy Foam MX-2 and as i read the Spectrum AR6100 micro reciever is only compatible with DSM2 systems so if i want to use my SD-10G for flying my foamy i have to use an Airtronics 2.4Ghz micro reciever as the AR6100 will not work with my SD-10G,is this soo?.

    Can you guys tell me whitch recievers are you guys using for 3D foamies with the SD-10G?.

    Thanks Greg.

    Pete said it...

    The RX40 is about 3grams. Super small and super light.

    The RX60 is about 6gms. I have several of both. They ROCK!

    The range on both is limited to about 1200' (I've flown them farther, the package says 1000'). Trust me... to get your foamy 4 football fields away from you requires great vision and a lot of trust that you can tell what it's doing. it was challenging to range check them when we were testing the Rx's.

    Just don't throw them in a big plane and fly far away!

    If you don't really care about minimum weight, the 5ch is only about 14grams. BUT...I would focus on weight. The MX2 flies great if you keep the weight down.

    Thanks guys i really appreciate it this will be my first Airtronics radio and i`m very excited about it..!!, i think i will be using the RX40 for beeing the lightest and i will just need 4 channels no need for more channels.

    Guys does the SD-10G need a transmitter weight balancer for the neckstrap?.

    Nope!  It's designed to be a 2.4 only radio.  Balances perfectly where the neck strap is.    Believe it or not that was a "must" from all the pilots involvded in the design and Japan listened well.

    I know this thread is old but I'm deciding between the RX40 and the RX60 - can you guys confirm (just for my own insanity) that the RX40 (92144) is OK for outdoor use in a foamy? I'm sure it is but seeing 'specifically designed for indoor use!' makes me second guess. And if anyone has a used one to sell or trade for a 94772 or 94761 I'm all ears
    Thanks guys,
    Joe

    Hey Joe,

    There's no issue with using the Rx40 outside, just that the range is limited to about 1000'. That should be more than adequate for flying any foamy, just be aware.
