Danny, when you have a minute take a look at these threads. It scares me a little to think that I have single conversion receivers with my 10X in a 40% plane! What is the official opinion on this, and why did JR elect to do this over dual conversion, especially in the top of the line radios? Is it as fickle as some say?
I have to say that personally mine are working fine, but it leaves travelling to another field or city in a state of anxiety
Anyway, here they are -->

Bob,
If you are not having a problem with them, I would not suspect you would. I personally have used single conversion receivers in 40% planes without any problems at all. The issue becomes with large planes with gas engines, that you can get just short momentary glitches that don't really cause any fear of losing the plane, but cause aggrivation. I usually set the throttle to fail safe and have it bring the throttle back to just over idle. With it set this way you will hear a little throttle blip if you get a glitch. If this does happen, a dual conversion receiver like the 945 would be recommended. If you don't have this happen to you, I would not be concerned about it at all. I've flown at many flying fields with a single conversion receiver without any hint of problems.

Anti-Blocking Circuitry and Windows.
It is nearly impossible to describe, but it is kinda like a little tiny guy inside your receiver constantly tweaking on a coil to make up for antenna orientation and so forth. The jury is still out, but many folks on the electronic engineering side of our hobby consider it to be as good as other manufacturer's dual conversion systems.
JR produces excellent dual conversion systems too, of course. Rumor has it, that a couple years ago someone asked the folks at JR why they couldn't produce a 7-9 channel PPM dual conversion receiver. They replied that it would be easy, but why bother when our single conversion (with ABC&W) is as good as everyone else's dual conversion?
