Default AR8000 Rx compatible with DX7 Transmitter??

A search doesn't throw up anything on this, so here goes....

I have a Spektrm DX7 radio and a couple of AR7000 receivers, and I can get my hands on a couple of AR8000 receivers at a good price.

The question is....can I use AR8000 receivers with my DX7 transmitter?

I'm guessing the answer is 'yes', but want to be sure before I shell out the $$.

Thanks for assistance radio gurus.

Yes the AR8000 rx's will run in either DSM2 or DSMX formats. Your DX7, if it's the original, is running in either DSM or DSM2 so it'll be fine. If your DX7 is a newer model, it's running in DSMX and so will the AR8000 so you'll be fine.

Oh, be SURE that the satellite which comes with the AR8000 is a match for it e.g. a DSMX or it won't work. Early versions are labeled as DSM2 but are actually DSMX, so be a bit careful there....
