Default Micro Recievor Help?!?!?!?

I was wondering if anyone knows of a reciever that is .3 oz or less and is duel conversion. (futaba, or Hitec) no JR or airotronics.
Thanks for all your help!

Default Hitec 555

The Hitec 555 is about .75 Oz.
Take the case off and you will be pretty close to .3

yep, that's the one----be careful--those GWS receivers that are super-light are NOT dual conversion. They have an 8 channel that IS dual, but it is heavier than the Hitec 555 and the FMA M5 (too bad!!).

Default receiver that works with Futaba 9Z

I have trouble looking for one that works with the Futaba 9Z.
I tried several and most didn't work at all, some did work but no mixing fuction!
Now I am using the Hitec 6 but want a lighter one.
Any suggestion?
Thank you

Even FMA's 6 and 8 channel units are only .5oz and dual conversion. Actually they don't even market a single conversion.

One, I think it's the Quantum, even has auto shift and I use it with both a Futaba and a JR. It just does it's thing.

Here are the weights of some very good receivers with their antenna and xtal installed.

FMA M5 Rx: 0.39oz
Berg 4*DSP MicroStamp Rx: 0.25oz
Plantraco DSP4-SC Rx+ESC: 0.35oz

The first two are pretty well known, the last one is a new. In the list above, only the M5 is dual conversion but both of the others handle interference so well that single conversion is not a disadvantage any more. If one turns the tx off first or hooks up the battery to the rx before the tx, the servos won't go crazy. It comes with a built in 10A ESC, very aggressively priced (~$65 shipped w/ xtal + rx/esc), great service. Ezone has a good thread on it, I wonder why it isn't here. I got a couple soon after it was available and am very happy with mine, an excellent deal for the price.

Kyle2Baseball:
Is there a particular reason you're looking for dual conversion?
In my experience, the choice depends largely on how many other folks are flying with you at the same time, place.
In a big group----dual conversion wins, hands down---flying by yourself---not a big deal.
