Default Use of Dual Receivers using 14SG

I have a 14SG radio and a couple of planes that I want more functions than an 8-channel receiver will handle. I don't want to buy a 14 channel receiver so I was wondering if there is a way to use dual receivers for the additional functions. The functions for the most part will just be on/off.

Thanks,
Andy

Why would you say I'm trolling, I joined AMA in 1980.

I notice in your profile you have not made any friends yet. Probably because you are a newbie and ignorant! You'd probably be better off keeping your mouth shut and read and learn from us that have been around awhile. I have not had an ignorant statement like yours for quite awhile which is why I don't participate much in this particular forum.

The R6208SB receiver can be set so that it will accept channels 1-8 or channels 9-16. This allows you to get all the channels on two receivers. You could also use the S-bus to have all the channels using one receiver. Any "SB" receiver will do that for you.

Thanks Woodie,
After reading the T14SG manual further, on page 73 in the upper right hand part of the page, there is instruction on how to program the transmitter to a dual receiver function. It does state that this can only be donein the FASSTest 14CH mode but at least that answers my question. I'm also going to play with Sbus as well.
