Mike,

I have a JR Radio with a R700 receiver that needs to be replaced. I've been considering a HiTec receiver as a replacement but I dont want to risk a incapatability issue or performance problem, however slight. Any need for me to be concerned ? What receiver would you recommend ( I need at least a 6 channel ).

Thanks for the advice,

Bravo

I know there is two types of FM frequencies. One is standard PPM and the other is inverted PPM. I'm not sure which companies use which. One won't work with the other so be careful. Some radios can change between these modes. Check to see wheter or not yours has this feature.

Bravo,

Hitec makes receivers that are specifically for TXs like your JR which is a positive pulse PPM system. Hitec receivers are considered the industry standard to meet by most people I hear from. Check out www-servocity-com for a good source of Hitec receivers at a great price.

A Hitec Supreme receiver should work fine. Costs
approx $60.

I too have been very satisfied with all of the Hitec receivers that I have. Given the "bang for the buck" packed into a Hitec PPM receiver they are about all that I buy now.

Cheers!

Galen

PS -- ServoCity.com is a great place to buy your Hitec gear online.
