Default Xtremelink for the programming adverse?


I would appreciate your suggestions in selecting a transmitter, based on the following:

1. I am heavily invested in old airtronics equipment. All transmitters are Vanguards, all receivers are 92765 or 92775s.

2. I like these units because I don't have to program.

3. I would like to go to the 2.4 GHZ SS technology, probably by the xtremelink module and receivers; I believe the Vanguard transmitters do not have a "removable rf module", and thus it appears I must find some transmitter which has a removable module.

4. I would like 7 channels.

5. The simpler the better.

6. I fly glow sport models.

Thanks for any suggestions.

xtremelink is putting out versions that will convert all radios to their system. This module plugs into the trainer jack. It was announced at the A.M.A. show in Mid January by Jim Drew. You won't have to buy anything if you really want to hang on to those radios !

Modules, in the RC-radio terminology, don't plug into trainer jacks. I've seen nothing on the Xtremelink website indicating that they'll have a product for non-module radios.

Thanks for the headsup.

I will follow through with a second email to the Xtreme folks.

There are thousands of Vanguards in use so there should be a market.

In this case, they do. That's one of the things that makes them so innovative.

Outstanding!
Maybe I can finish my flying career without programming frustration...and without more planes falling from the sky after radio link failure, cause always, unknown.

I recall from the AMA convention they had a module that they attached to the pack of a transmitter that didn't have a module recepticle and the module had a small wire tail coming out the back with a trainer jack plug attached to it. So, I believe their module solution will work with transmitters that don't use modules.

We will have adapter cables for our module for all of the different trainer ports. No INTERNAL connections will be necessary. This is a simple plug 'n play device. The SAME signal found in internal RF modules is available on the trainer port. Technically, we don't need multiple transmitter modules. We could support the JR, Futaba, and Hitec transmitters using this same method. A specific module provides only a cleaner look.

That's from Jim Drew in the above linked thread.
