Does the DX7 works just with a 7ch receiver? Like AR7000?

People, I'll buy the Honey Bee V2. But I wanna purchase a good radio: the DX7. But I have to have a good receiver. Is it good the AR7000 by Spektrum?

The receiver that comes with the HB V2 will not work with the DX7? Right?

Hello bluefox89,

I recently bought a radio kit that includes the DX7, the AR7000 receiver, 4 DS821 digital servos, Charger and switch harness. All new from Spektrum in a factory package.

It is obviously made to work together.

I do not know about the receiver that comes with the HBV2.

Season's greetngs,

Zor

Thanks for the information Zor. I konw the kit that comes the Tx and Receiver with 4 servos. But I wanna know if fits in the heli, is small too? Because the HB V2 it's very small. But I think that fits yes.

The 7000 is too big for a heli that small

Go to www.horizonhobby.com and type "spektrum" in the search box. Then look for the size and channels you need for the heli. I know Spektrum now has small full range receivers.

I searched there before. The problem is I don't have the Heli yet. And I don't find the dimensions of the receiver for E-Sky Honey Bee V2. The receiver is on 4x1 controller, but it's difficult to find.

I have to ask for someone who has.

Spektrum has receivers which ar intended for "in close"flying
look at these particular ones - the smallest offered will function well in very small helis
In fact - the sub miniature rx/servo esc setups which are in th e tiny one ounce models (the bind n fly) will work in tiny custom made models such as shown here

bluefox89,



I hope you know that the Esky receiver unit for the Honey Bee is more than a receiver. It also is the electronic speed control, gyro, and mixer for the tail rotor. I had an earlier version that I was able to split the controller electronics from the receiver part and graphed an AR6000 to it. The exercise didn’t result in a better flying Honey Bee.



So unless you bought your Honey Bee without electronics, I would suggest you stick with the transmitter and receiver that came with it.



Allan

It's right AWorrest. The receiver has the gyro and stuffs, and I have to change the ESC for 2 motors and 3-in-1. So it won't make a big difference with this radio. It's better buy the DX7 with another heli like a 450.
