Default Wich reciever?

Danny, I have a couple of questions. I bought a 10x radio converted to 2.4 it had a 9000 reciever and 2 antennas. I put it in a Hanger 9 Ultimate and almost lost the airplane it locked out 3 times in one flight. It range checked fine with engine running. I heard there was some problems with the older 9000 recievers when used in a 10x is this true? Now my next question is I have 2 50% planes flying now and building the third. I am wanting to fly them at the Nall in the 2.4 area. I did not have much luck with my first try of 2.4 and I am very reluctant to change over my 50% ers to 2.4. My first 50% is a Hemple 260. I set this plane up with 1 reciever and a older powerbox sc12 I believe. I run matchboxes and 2 power leads to everything the rudder has 2 matchboxes and the elevators each have 2 matchboxes the wings have a matchbox also. I use a R2000
reciver in this plane and have never had a problem.The 260 has 10 8611s and 4 8711s. My other is a 50% hemple 540 it has a powerbox with servo matching and a redundent reciever RRS. I do not remember if I have 955s or 945s in that one.This one runs 10 8711s and a seiko on rudder. It does have 2 recievers. My third plane I am now building will be 14 8711s and I have purchased a powerbox royal for it.
What is your recommended recievers and setup for each of these airplanes if converted to 2.4?
If you have any questions just post and I will get back to you. I have till May to make this change.

There are no problems with the AR9000's. Did you verify if you had an issue with the flight log, or is it possible you had a power problem in the aircraft? The AR9000, AR91000, R921, or new upcoming R922 would work fine in any of the aircraft you mentioned.
