Default receiver help

I found this receiver http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store..._Receiver.html and I was wondering if it would bind with the PKZ3341 transmitter. I didn't order them yet, also does a receiver needs to be fcc approved because I am not sure if this is

If you go to the hobbyking URL and look down at the bottom, there's a discussion area you can log into and ask your question. That might improve your odds of getting a good answer.

It will bind since it is DSM2/DSMX but the PKZ3341 is a low power transmitter intended for small BNF(it doesn't have much range and very basic)

Only transmitters need to be FCC compliant!

You are not going to get a hard answer as they do not exist and certainly not from the manufacturer but the first clue, comes from the first statement in the link you posted "perfect for small foamies and indoor models" I would be amazed if any of that stuff reached 200 feet I have seen often far less than that.

So just how far across are you talking about at the east river and are you talking about flying something farther than you can see???

I am building a small foamie, and I will not fly this farther then I can see, planning on flying between the triboro and the hell gate bridge, before I reach the other side of the river I will bring the airplane back

Yes , the receiver should work with the transmitter. And No, it probably won't have that range. It is not even a park flyer transmitter. It is intended for indoor, or very close in flying.

Did you check this Rx manual?
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...X893272X48.pdf
You should test it over land first to determine the maximum range, Good luck!

So that is the whole point it is not! At least in hard well defined numbers as I noted in post #5 and certainly no manufacturer would publish those kind of hard numbers.

What you want to do is unrealistic. First there is no way I would go beyond perhaps forty feet or so with the transmitter you have and the receiver you linked. The picture you linked is a good four hundred feet or so. Now the quite small airplane you linked is pretty cool however at that distance there is no way you would even be able to visually control it. Learning how to fly is what everyone leaves out of the equation but nonetheless doing it over water with a landplane is a really, really bad idea.

Yes that would work. As always best you buddy up with some one who has some experience.

Me and my friend are making plans for a rc spruce goose that's made of foam might have a 60 or 70 inch wingspan with 4 channel control so what transmitter would be great for flights that can go across the river and back
