Default 16IZ with 7008SB and7108SB

Thinking about getting a 16iz to replace my old 12z. I already have a R7008SB RX. If I get the 16iz with the R7108SB is it possible to set it up in a plane as the R7108SB will be ch 1-8 and the R7008SB can be 9-16? Obviously I would just use fasst mode. And would you need a battery for each RX? I was thinking that I needed to get the R7014SB but If using the 2 RXs will work, I donít have to.

The dual separate receiver set up with split channels only works on FASSTest. You can link 2 receivers in FASST but only get the same channels out of both.

I do not think you can mix/match the 7108 and 7008. If using 2 RX I always recommend posering both from both batteries.

I use the 7014 in a couple of planes. I like it.

What model are you setting up?

Just noticed its a R6208SB that I have, not a R7008SB so no it wonít work. I guess I will just get the R7104SB.

I'd just go with the 7014 as well. Remove complexity where possible. Run 2 packs into the RX and go fly.
