Default RE: do i need a pcm receiver with gas?

Well you don't HAVE to use a PCM receiver. You can set the plane up using your PPM receiver and work out all the bugs with that. But, chances are you are going to have trouble getting a decent range check with the PPM with the motor running. THEN is when you will decide you better try a PCM receiver.
NOT True. I do not own any PCM receivers and many of my aircraft are gas. If you set up right you will not have RF issues.
Well, just because one guy in ten gets a good range check with PPM doesn't mean we all will. Like they say....no two airplanes are alike. I'd keep a PCM receiver handy just in case. Its what PCM was invented for....it has failsage features and superior noise rejection. IMO
