RE: H9 Jackal 50 Prop Jet

Got back to working on my Jackal 50 last night, and one of the Robart main gear is defective from the factory. One of the main gear is missing at least one part, the back stop rod that stops movement...

Thank you,

RE: Spektrum AR8000 useless without satellite

I own some of the receivers, but I had no reason to attempt to use them without the satellite receiver. Did you think of trying that with yours?

RE: Spektrum AR8000 useless without satellite

Yes, he said that the satellite receiver was not included, but he did not say that it was not functional without it.

RE: Spektrum AR8000 useless without satellite

I was wrong. Looking over my purchasing history, the prices were about the same for all three AR8000 receivers, within $10 or so.

RE: Spektrum AR8000 useless without satellite

If you want to read the eBay ad, the item number is 180862913514. Nowhere does it tell me that the satellite receiver is required for the receiver to actually work! I did not find that out until I...

RE: Spektrum AR8000 useless without satellite

The seller appears to have known that the receiver was not functional without the satellite receiver. His ad did not state that the receiver was not functional. And eBay ruled in his favor.
