Default Shift Selectable Hitec RX?

I'm looking at buying one of the 7ch shift selectable Hitec RX's.

I've never used one of these RX's before, and was wanting some feedback about it.

I've been using hitec RX's for years. I own 6ch Electron, 5ch 555 Micro, and 8ch Supreme. I've just always been cautious about using these 7ch selectable RX's

Any opinions about reliablity?

Thanks

Same as the rest of thier recievers. The only difference is they will work with Futaba or JR or Airtronics instead of having a different part number for Futaba.

I know that they work for either Futaba/Hitec OR JR/Airtronics. I know that.

I'm wondering about reliability.

There's just something in my brain that says it can't do BOTH shifts well. A RX should either be + or - shift, but not selectable for either.

Has anyone experienced glitches or malfunctions with these RX's? Was it related to the shift selectable feature? Or did you auger it in first--and then have problems?

Reliability?

I have one in a 4-Star 60 that is coming up on a year old in January... no problems. I just bought another one to go into the Aresti 40 that's in the assembly process at the moment.

I also know of several guys at the field who have these receivers working in both +ve/-ve shift situations. They seem to be, from my point of view anyway, as reliable as any other receiver.

Awesome. I've been using the Hitec shift selectable receivers for over 3 years. Both of mine are rock solid. I recommend them.

Don't worry about reliability, because the only diference in shift selectable receivers is which area (pulse or through) carries the signal this is what the selectable receiver recognizes, the wave itself is the same

I have 3 of them, haven't crashed any more with them than with other receivers.

At the moment, 2 are in functioning planes, no problems. One's looking for a home, and I don't anticipate problems with it.

Good luck,
Dave Olson

I have three or four shift selectable receivers and haven’t had any problems. It is also what I will purchase the next time a receiver is needed.

I also have 3 and all work perfectly. Also, they are HITEC and if you do have a problem they rarely ever charge for repairs. The only mild complaint is that they are not small. But thet are great devices.
