Default DX7 compatible receivers

I have 2 yr old DX 7 with a AR 7000 receiver - still in the box.
I would like to "convert" my "fleet' of Electric planes to the DX 7, but the AR 7000 is too cumbersom for almost ALL of my Electric EPP foam planes (average weight = 2 - 2.5 lbs).

Question: Which 4 (min) channel, single unit, full range receivers are compatible with the DX 7?

Many Thanks

check www.horizonhobby.com there are several 7 ch and less receivers. I've used the AR500, AR6100, AR6200, and AR7000 with my DX7. The new AR6110 looks good for a park flier / foamie (light!) but I haven't tried that one yet.

Don't forget to send in your RX for the upgrade, if it has it they'll send it back, if it doesn't they'll upgrade it and send it back. Takes about 3 weeks. Call it in to Horizon service first.

It's usually free!

Try the AR 6000 rcvr. I have 10 of them in use in up to 40 sized planes. Full range.

The AR6000 is a park flyer recieverr I darn sure wouldn't be using it in a 40 size plane.

The DX7 will work with any DSM or DSM 2 reciever.

To check the firmware power up the transmitter and reciever normally, the reciever should get solid lights.

Turn off the receiver power and turn it back on, one of three things will happen:

1. It will take 3 to 5 seconds to link up and the lights come on solid.
2. It will link instantly and the lights will come on solid
3. It will link instantly and the lights will flash.

1 is the oldest firmware and should be upgraded.
2. is the next newer firmware, it will recover from a low power situation instantly but not give you any indication after the flight. This is the minimum I'd fly with but could be upgraded if you dont need the receiver for a few weeks.
3. is the newest firmware and you dont have to worry about sending it back
