Default JR transmitter/Airtronics Receiver

Has anyone used Airtronics receivers (92765 or 92775) with a JR transmitter? Were the results good or bad?

I am heavily invested in old Airtronics receivers, connectors, extensions and servos. I am considering purchase of a programmable 7 channel transmitter. I know JR, like Airtronics, has been positive shift (unless shift selectable). All my receivers are ppm not pcm.

JR's product support will not comment on the use of Airtronics receivers with their transmitters.

The JR 7202 transmitter allows one to select frequency, and use any jr receiver, even those which are not frequency selectable.

I understand JR receivers are generally single conversion, while the Airtronics are dual conversion...but I don't know if that is important. I guess the proof is how these work in combination in the real world.

Thanks for any help.

Hi GoNavy,
Those old Airtronics dual conversion receivers are solid as a rock[8D] I have four left in my fleet, two each of the 4 and 6 channel models.
The JR 7202 should be fine with those receivers, dual and single conversion is only a receiver "thing", either type will work with any positive shift Tx in PPM mode.
JRs support response is to be expected, they have to cover their backsides.
Does your LHS have a JR 7202 in stock? maybe you could do a quick range check at the hobby shop with one of your receivers[8D].
Good luck,
Pete

I use JR Rx's with Airtronics Tx's (Vision, Stylus), and Airtronics Rx's with JR Tx's (10SX, 10X) all the time with never a problem. Only limitation is FM only, PCM encoding is different between brands so the Rx won't recognize the Tx.

Thanks, that's very good news.
How did you happen to "mix and match"?

I've been using Airtronics for years and have shoeboxes full of Rx's and servos. Needed a 10 channel for jets so bought the 10X for jets (and got a good deal on the 10SX to use for a buddy box).........So have been mixing and matching as the need arises.
