My understanding is that the DX6G2 had the aerial in only the carry handle or antenna or vice versa. This caused reception issues and it was replaced quickly by the DX6G3, which has the transmitting aerial in both. I believe the G2 version is no longer available.

I’ve had my G2 for three years with no reception problems. It has been rock solid and is easy ro program and is pleasure to use. I think the reception isues have been overblown.

After seeing how much telematry receivers are I’m not so bothered if it’s gen 1,2 or 3. So apart from telematry is there much difference between the 1,2 or 3 ???

Thanks luke

I bought and have got 2 DX6 , i don't know which ones I've got, but they both do DSM2. The first DX6 I got as soon as it got out, but when the later versions went to DSM X only, some Bind and fly models are on DSM2 and if for example the first transmitter needed repairing, it would come back repaired as DSMX, making the models that are on DSM2 useless. So having another transmitter, as backup seemed a good idea...

The original DX6 was a DSM transmitter back in 2006 (?). The only difference between the G2 and the G3 is that the G3 has the diversity RF unit with two antennas. My understanding is that Spektrum went to two fixed antennas rather than one adjustable or fixed antenna because the users kept breaking the adjustable ones and can't be trusted to install the receiver antennas correctly.

What’s people’s thoughts on the dx8??? They seem to be going at a good price on eBay.
