Default Airtronics 2.4 gig receiver antennas

I am trying to find several sets of antenna for the Airtronics 2.4 6 channel receiver. I have 10 sets of case parts and an equal number of internal parts, but no antennas. They are the type that snaps in place. I would be willing to try another brand's antennas but am not sure of the size of the snap connector. The current Sanwa dealer in the U.S. shows them on their website but seem to be always out of stock.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

RCU makes it difficult to be helpful. Probably one of the reasons I no longer use the site
I purchased the antenna at Aloft Hobbies but the one I bought is not currently in stock.

I am not allowed to include links in my messages here because I haven't made 10 posts
in whatever the qualifying time period. The coaxial connector you need is an IVEX 4.
It is 1.8 mm in circumference. The antenna is 250mm long.
I tried posting a jpg photo that showed the links but that didn't get by RCU either. 🤨 🤔

I failed to comment there are 3 versions of the 6 channel receiver. I am sure you are not referencing the park flier version.
Then there is the RX600 and the 92224.

I have a tiny Airtronics RX40 4 channel park flyer receiver. I have been looking for one that has experience using one
and therefore has a feeling for its range. The 92664 6 channel park flyer RX has great range, beyond the distance I
want to fly and be able to see a 60" span sailplane !

The 8 and 10 channel receivers are what I am using. I have used the shorter antenna with success, but the range would be reduced.

I will check with Aloft hobbies.Thank you for your help!

I have used the tiny 4-channel park flyer receiver for years with no issues. I have had the tiny plane about 100 yards away and no loss of signal. The plane was a speck at that distance.

Is it not the length of the exposed core that primarily impacts the efficiency of the antenna we use for RC at 2.4Ghz ?? The overall length of the antenna we use is, for practical purposes, within a use restrained limit.

Thanks so very much for your experience with the RX40 😀 😀
These tiny R/C aircraft have parts so small. The fasteners are not made for my large
blunt round ended fingers. I am a glider guider. It is amazing the things you see floating
by when you are looking for extended periods of time into the blue sky 😁 😎😎

Hoping you're still out there somewhere Larry Sribnick:

I have an operation question about the ACE DigiPace 2 and 3 charger/cycler units:
I am using new (current) Airtronics M12 and M17 4-channel surface radio systems. I have opted to use 5-cell 6V Rx packs, and 4-cell 4.8V Tx packs. All SR Batteries NiCd packs (no LiPo). As I wanted to be able to use my old ACE charging gear.

I have an original SR Batteries “Heavy Duty” ACE DigiPace 2 unit I aquired back in 1980's, which you modified to use 5-cell 6V Rx packs. However, the Tx side provides only the default battery pack cutoff voltage selections (ie. 12v, 9.6V, 6v).

I need a 4-cell 4.8V, Tx battery pack cutoff voltage setting. Is it possible to modify this DigiPace 2 unit (switching resistors?, etc.,..) to create a 4.8v cut-off setting? Please let me know.

Appreciate your help!


Regards,
Dave



PS: I purchased quite a few SR packs from you back in the day. Very good product. I still have a handful of brand-new battery packs, which I've stored in my (temperature stable) home closet for years. I cycled one pack last week with very good results

How did an antenna thread turn into a charger thread?
