I am about to buy a second hand 1.5m all carbon DLG for an excellent price. As Can anyone recommend a suitable DSMX 6 channel Rx for this application? Is the hype re "Carbon Fuse" RX's true or is it just a case of having antennas long enough to exit the fuselage?

It is not hype Steve, real carbon fibre does shield signals. I say real, as some carbon claimed objects are not.
Pick your favourite dual antenna Rx and get the aerials to poke outside at right angles if you can
Long aerial Rx are easier to set up

I may be wrong but you should be OK if the antennae are outside the fuselage.
I use these in 2 gliders and the antennae are long enough to poke out of each side of the fuselage
Just remember to hot melt glue the antenna plugs and sockets together or they may come apart in flight.
Other than that they are very good, I have mine set up for flaps camber and crow braking.

I don't know about recommend, but I think that you only have one option for a carbon DLG and that is the AR6270.

Agreed the AR6270T as already said make sure antennas are sticking out beyond fuselage. Set transmitter to record holds and fades get somebody to hold it at distance and tip it in all directions. Fades are expected but holds are fatal. I have set my transmitter up to broadcast every minute and it really gives good info. On DSMX I typically on get 5 or 6 (below 10) Book says on typical flight below 50 is ok. Cannot stress too highly carbon blocks signals, antenna's must have direct line of sight without carbon blocking signal.

I,'ve got several Redcon rxs from Banggood ,they have quite long aerials and and seem very reliable.

Thanks for the suggestions gents. AR6270T seems to be favourite but at 80 Euros it equals 40% of the cost of the model. Would this be suitable? Similar to speedster's suggestion but without telemetry.
