Default HELP! futaba 4ex receiver discontinued

Hi, I own a futaba 4ex transmitter that I bought with a micro receiver and micro servos, I want to use a standard size receiver for a bigger plane but found out the receiver for my transmitter is dicontinued, can I use an other brand receiver or do I have to use a futaba exclusively?


Thank's!

You can use any Rx that has a negative shift (or automatic shift detection) that is on the same frequency as your Tx. Yours is most likely 72mhz.


If you get another Futaba Rx, I believe you have to get one made for the channel you're on (high band or low band), Futaba is the only one who makes this distinction with their Rx's.

Get the FM one. I don't know if the EX is PCM compatible, so don't go there.

Servo City currently has a great price on a Hitec receiver that will work with your transmitter
Receiver $29.99 http://www.servocity.com/html/supreme_8_fm_rx.html
Crystal $7.95 http://www.servocity.com/html/fm_dua...r__66772_.html
Crystal cap $1.99 http://www.servocity.com/html/crystal_caps.html
I bought two of these receivers when they had a 2 for 1 sale and they did not include the crystal cap. My brother bought two and they did include them.

When the ServoCity deal ends, another good deal is the Tower Hobbies receiver.

$44.99, with crystal, all the time.
