Default Polk synthesized RX

Will this RX work with JR, hitec, AND futaba gear?

If not all, then with which ones?

Has anyone tried one of these yet?

Oh, and what is the red button on the wire for, anyone know?

First off, since the radio just started production, they aren't available yet (expected for January). Since they don't exist yet, the pictures on the web-site are from an earlier version. Supposedly they have eliminated the need for a programming button (red button in picture), and I think they said it is compatible with ALL ppm (FM) transmitters (+ve & -ve shift).

"Our system adjusts for either positve or negative pulse..."

Hope this helps.

I was on the phone with Mr. Lewis Polk himself on Friday. They just started shipping the Tracker II system orders in rotation, and he will be calling me back on Monday with an ETA for my system. Since my order was placed back in October, it will probably be early in the shipping rotation.

The red button is for setting the Rx into programming mode, so you can select your frequency. Another member I have been comunicating with just received his Seeker receiver, and has posted an update on it: http://www.rcuniverse.com/showthread...986#post664680]

Dear Dennis,

We have shipped many Seekers, so they are out there. There is little difference from the earlier versions, other than we no longer require a wig-wag to iniate the connection. It's now a passive connection to anything within 12" of the antennas.

I hope some of you that have the Seeker will comment.

Yours truly,
Lewis Polk

I know - I am in communication with a few Seeker owners for some of the research I have done into your system. One of them has even posted results here on RCU of his recent purchase. http://www.rcuniverse.com/showthread...986#post664680]
