The latest Spektrum receiver is a six channel, ultra light, dual unit that offers all the features and specifications that are found on its bigger brothers the 7 and 9 channel receivers. The new AR6200 unit is a full range receiver that features the full DSM2 technology whilst still only weighing in at a mere 10g. With small physical dimensions, it should be easy to install in a model making it the ideal receiver for a vast range of both fixed wing and rotary aircraft where small size and light weight are an advantage. Sturdily constructed in a tough plastic case, this receiver is at home in the fun flyer or larger fuel and electric powered models, whilst it is still strong enough to withstand all the rough and tumble associated with 3D manouevers.

If you haven't noticedJamara's competition advert in June's RCM&E then there's still time to win one of the425 T8F 2. 4GHz transmitter modules the company are giving awaybefore the end of July- an incredible offer of the type never before seen in the R/C hobby industry. The draw is open to anyone although only advertised in the UK and Germany. From 8th May and every day until 31st July, Jamara will announce the names of lucky 5 winners who will receive a free T8F module.

We think the clean, fresh styling is very attractive. Ripmax in the UK and Futaba have announced a new radio system in the form of this Field Force 8 (8FG) due to arrive in the UK very soon. Reflecting a clean, fresh styling, the 8-channel system offers eight proportional channels and two switched channels. It's aimed at the upper-level sport flyer as well as the entry- to mid-level competition pilot.

The new JR DSX-12 2. 4GHz Well, it's here at last, the second JR 2. 4GHz radio and by some way one of the most capable consumer radios that we've ever seen. It all comes at a price of course but let's look at the spec' first.

Receiving more than a makeover, Spektrum have revised their mid-range stalwart the DX7 in the process grafting a DX8’s body along with a substantial software upgrade, also based on the DX8 AirWare platform. The new DX7S will employ the DSMX frequency of course along with full telemetry feedback such as signal strength, Rx battery voltage, frame losses, and (via sensors) rpm, temperature etc. It’ll have 20 model memories and an SD card slot to facilitate plenty more along with model data transfers and firmware upgrades. Handily the transmitter can operate using a Li-Po battery and the multi-chemistry charger supplied will replenish all cell types.

Small enough? Horizon Hobby UK are shortly to distribute two new Spektrum 2. 4gHz receivers that should be on UK shop shelves very soon - the AR6300 and its big brother the AR9100. Effectively a small circuit board with connectors attached and designed for slow flyers, the tiny 6-channel AR6300 weighs in at 2g and employs the DSM2 system. The JST connecters are compatible with Spektrum’s programmable DSP60J Digital Super Sub-Micro Servo.

An Orca 3s 11. 1v 2600mAh Transmitter Li-Po battery Using Li-Po's to power your receiver and transmitter? Why would you want to do this? Ok, let me start by looking at some advantages - Li-Po’s are always ready for use, they have hardly any self-discharge, unlike NiMH cells. They’re lighter than equivalent capacity NiMH cells (usually an advantage in aeromodelling). They wont drop voltage to the level that the airborne radio may stop working.

We have brought this poll to you before, first in 2012 and then in 2014 and the results were different each time. 2012 the top three were: Futaba 41% Spektrum 34% JR 10% 2014 the top two switched: Spektrum 38% Futaba 31% JR 9% So we wanted to find out just how different your choice is 3 years later. We've updated the choices a little to keep in line with the current trends, adding FrSky and Turnigy.
