Default which receiver

Hi all

I am looking for a receiver to put in my topflite spitfire. I have a JR6 channel fm radio. Will this receiver work?
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXHHR8&P=7

its a GWS receiver. From what I understand they make stuff for park flyers, so I if I put a 2000mA battery will it work for a .60 sized warbird?
Thanks
Gareth

As long as it is a full range Rx it should be OK.

Here is the GWS web site.

I cannot find any references as to whether this Rx is Full Range or not. You could either call GWS or Tower Hobbies, since they sell this Rx. You could also try your LHS.

If you have to import a receiver, I would recommend this.

I know this is a full range receiver, I have flown lots of them (also using J.R. transmitters). The only GWS receiver I own was flown beyond range in one of my gliders, I do not fault GWS, but believe I was flying it beyond its intended range. But heck the first 24min of the flight were GREAT!
Hope this helps,

I second the hitec receiver option - I've had great luck with their receivers, both 8 channel and the electron 6's.

I noted in the original post the question about using a 2000 mah battery with the Naro RX. Putting a larger battery on a park flier receiver won't make a full range receiver out of it.

You would be much better off with a known good full range receiver such as the Hitec mentioned in the post above.

Hi!

Strange! You ask for a receiver for a fairly large Spitfire...then you must have flown for several years and should have gathered both enough radio gear and enough knowledge to know.
That Spitfire is not for a newbie!

Hi there

Can fly fairly well but still learning about building,  equipment etc. haven't even started building the spitfire-I have a lot of hours to still put in on my sport trainer and am just gathering all the bits and bobs. I figure about a year before I will actually fly it. Thanks for info regarding reveivers

Hi!
Well! If you have a JR transmitter it's an easy choice! Get a JR receiver!

I've never understood why people make comments like you have above. This person has asked a legitimate question and is seeking help. It's no wonder some beginners get turned off to this hobby. My suggestion is, if you can't contribute something worthwhile, don't contribute.
