Default Single conversion And Dual conversion

The transmitter doesn't care whether the receiver is single or dual conversion. The choice which receiver to use is dependant upon your needs (range, $$, and brand compatibility), and the level of local RF interference in the area.

Since the Prism7 is capable of selecting either +ve or -ve shift, you can use any brand of PPM receiver, but if you want to use PCM you will need to use Hitec.

MOST single conversion (SC) receivers have less range than dual conversion (DC) receivers. This is fine when flying park-flyers in a small area, or for indoors flight. The exception to this rule is JR's SC receivers. They have additional circuitry designed to improve the receiver's noise rejection capabilities. This allows JR to make SC receivers capable of similar reception range as its competitor's DC receivers.
