Default Spektrum 6100e or 6110e

What is the difference in these receivers? LHS has the 6100e but not the 6110e. FAHS (far away Hobby Shop, [not that far away but not local to me]) has the 6110e. I'm all for supporting the local guy and putting some $$ his way if I can. But I insist on the better of the equipment especially when they are the same price. So which should I go with?

Also please give me the low down on why the 6100e seems to have been discontinued.

Transmitting from a DX7, putting receiver onto a scratch build 3D foamie. Flying mostly indoors, and some backyard weather permitting.

not 100% sure but i think the 6110 receiver only takes the micro servo plug ends , where the 6100 takes the normal size servo plugs. check on this .

Just looked at horizons web site. The AR6110/e has standard pins too, just like the 6100/e. I have the 6100e and have never been very happy with it. Seems very sensitive to battery voltage and I have a lot of "moments" when there is no response. Cant seem to stop the voltage brown out on this one. So I dont use it anymore. Might be why its discontinued, just speculating. My small receiver of choice is the 6300 which uses the jst xh connectors. Have 3 of them and they work great. That along with 4 ar7000 receivers, I'm happy with all the spektrum stuff I have.
I went to BPHobbies site and bought a bunch of JST XH servo wires to swap out the HS55 servo wires I have (~1.75/ea). Helps reduce the weight on the small ones.
One other thing, the 6300 is the same price.

The AR6110e is a bit smaller and lighter (4.0 grams vs 4.4 grams). It also seems to have the latest features that Spektrum has been putting into their receivers lately. If I had the choice I would pick up the 6110e over the 6100e for the same price.

The reason to discontinue the AR6100e is simple: The newer AR6110e is smaller, lighter, and has more features for the same price.

Read the spec sheets. This clearly explains the differences
the two earlier park flyer rx called 6100 and 6100E are now 6110 and 6110E
smaller ligher AND each have a missed signal detector which flashes a light (a different light than use to show voltage problems)
antenna orientation is changed but on the flat foam models I have used for all four types -I see no differences in operation.
IF I see a winking light after a flight - I can now determine IF I actually had a power problem OR a signal problem
The sad part is that many users never read or attempt to see why hese features are of value.
NOBODY else includes this detection arrangement -even on their most expensive stuff.
PS this equipment does not operate on Airhogs or Radio Shack radios.
