5-channel receiver problems and new receivers?
I'm a long-time Futaba user, but bought an SD-10G to upgrade to 2.4Ghz. I like the radio but, like others, am disappointed in the Airtronics receiver line and the fact that there are no 3rd-party receivers available for the radio. With my style of flying I'm happy to get planes up and down in one piece, so I invest as little as possible in my planes but ensure what's in them will do the job - e.g., why buy a 6-channel Rx when only four are needed? I'd buy the Airtronics RX500 but the few reviews I've read about the receiver have been relatively bad, some claiming loss of signal and crashes when used with an SD-10G. What have been your experiences with this combo?
From someone supposedly "in the know", Airtronics was to have introduced a new receiver line "at the first of the year(2014)". Anyone heard anything about that? Seems with Airtronics the year could be 201X, like with the SD-10G Super!
