Default tactic 624 reciever full range?

I just bought a tactic 650 transmitter and 2, 624 receivers.Can I use these receivers in 60 to 120 size airplanes or do I have to get the new dual antenna receivers for them? Just don't know about the range (new to 2.4 radios).
Thanks, Dave

The Tactic TR624 receiver is a "full range" receiver. That means that you have control of the model as long as it's in visual range of the unaided eye. You can use the TR624 in any airplane it will fit into.

This information was helpful to me as well since I also just bought the Tactic 650 transmitter with the two 624 receivers!

Then what is the need for the TR625 receiver with dual antennas?

I too am in need of this answer. What is the advantage of the TR625 over the TR 624 ? Looking to use the receiver in a larger "Gasser " airplane.. Will either work, or is the 625 better than the 624 ?

"It allows for installations where reception could be problematic. Originally posted by Bax " Is this the answer ?

For some aircraft, with large, bulky engines, a lot of wiring, or metal or carbon fuselages, you want to be able to insure good reception. Dual antennas will give you a more-enhanced signal reception capability, and allow you to position the antennas far apart from each other and also outside of the airframe, if necessary.

Thanks Bax,

Will go the dual antennae option.

The dual antennae Tactic receivers are not that expensive, and well worth the peace of mind while flying. The receiver is going in a SPAD PVC fuse, so antennaes can be routed outside the airframe.

I have a couple install questions for the 624 Rx. I will be using it in a 60 size sport model, with standard ply fuse , metal pushrods and glo engine.

Is it okay to wrap the 624 next to the battery in foam, or is it better to keep the Rx away from the battery a bit? If separated from the battery, is it still preferable to wrap in foam also? (I thought I read somewhere you should avoid wrapping the Rx in foam due to heat build up but wasn't sure about that.. ?)

Should the short antenna on the 624 exit the fuse, or is this not necessary?

(I do know to keep the Rx away from servo wiring and metal pushrods as much as is feasible.)

Thanks for any info!

The bared metal tip of the receiver antenna is the actual antenna. The rest is the coax cable. Mount the bared tip as far away as possible from wiring, the battery pack, from servos, and from metal pushrods. The antenna does not have to exit the fuselage.

You will not have any problems if you wrap the receiver in foam near the battery pack.
