Default Buyer beware NEW SPEKTRUM AR8010T RX

Just bought a ar8010T receiver, says Carbon Fuselage Telemetry Receiver on package, but nothing about carbon fuselage in tech notes, so called to confirm, The guy at Horizon said he thinks they where mislabled in mfg process but cant confirm yet if they are or not. Anyway if you buy one be careful on what the label says. Hope this helps anyone.

As I understand it, carbon receivers (AR9300 etc) are just equipped with longer feed-through aerials to bring the active sections at the tips out of the shielding effect of the carbon fuz, both on main and satellite receivers.
I've just bought a new AR8010T RX myself, and there's no way it could be used in a carbon fuz as the aerials are just too short, but are perfectly ok for mounting in a conventional wood/plastic/glass model. The packaging on mine makes no reference to it being a carbon receiver.

cubaneight,

Yes your statement is true, the only problem I have, is MY RX says 8ch Carbon fuselage telemetry reciever on the front, you can google pics of them and they all say the same thing, even Spektrums website. Anyway thanks for posting.
