MauricioB wrote:Hi Eric, it is true, why use something that has failed, I actually bought several of the receiver blinds, I have installed in several of my planes and they all work well, only the one I had in the Extra 260 and another that I placed in the Stylo red failed, although then take the same rx of the Extra and place it on a motorized glider, take it to almost 300 meters high and never failed again. that is, this confuses. From what I see sometimes they fail sometimes, they are not unstable ... so always doubt if there is something that I am doing wrong, but it seems that in reality these RXs do not have true quality control, that is, it is a lottery. Now I will take serious measures, I will not use them anymore. It hurts a lot to break a model that I put so much care there, it is a blow that leaves no air, but I will build another Stylo and I will share it here again.
 I understand , Works when it wants is not good !  Damn!   Trash all!!!! Rolling Eyes

I use Spektrum and Orange Rx receivers only. Have not had a problem with either yet, except for plain ol' pilot error! But for your needs, small and lightweight, I think that teh Spektrum AR400, AR410, AR500, would be your best bet as all of those are true 'full range' receivers, and have 2 antennas for diversity, but cannot speak for the new AR410 with the built in antenna, but I do want one now jsut to try out!

The 400 no issues up to 150 ish mph have 3 of them all well used.
The 410 is the best also have three of them two used thus far.
I say the best as the plugs come out the front so it lays low flat.
That and there is no antenna wires to deal with. I have taken it up to
140 ish mph with no glitches. Spec heights and from one end of the
field and back about 250 yrds. back and forth no mercy zero glitches.

Hello friend Brad, I am seeing if I get in my country the AR410, again it is complicated to bring material from other countries Sad Sad ... it is sad, but it is so.
I will keep you informed if I get them!
Thank you for always being there! Thumbs Up

Radio components are something I never try to save money with.  I've lost airplanes to cheap radios and servos and I won't do it again.  Radio manufactures design their systems to work together.  Cheap Chinese receivers are reverse engineered and I don't trust them.  The Chinese or their cheap receivers.

I fly primarily Futaba although I've got JR, Airtronics and Spectrum systems.  I use only receivers built by the same companies as the transmitter.  It's just not worth the $40 or $50 dollars saved to risk hours and hours of building time in my opinion.

The AR410 is a great receiver. It's light and like Brad says, with the case replaced with heatshrink it's super-light.  I've never had even a glitch when used with Spectrum or Hitec servos.

I use a 200mAh LiFe Hobbico battery in micro-sized airplanes.  Most, if not all multi-chemistry chargers made in the last ten years have a LiFe function.  Current battery and charging technology blows my mind.

Don't try to save a few bucks on radio equipment.  It'll cost way more than you save in the long run.

My two cents.

Your most welcome Mauricio,
The AR410 has become popular and distribution is making
a world wide presence. Maybe some have showed up in your
country if you have hobby stores.

Full range (>2000M), also full range telemetry (ar410 does not), less half the volume (its only 2 pins high, not three), half the weight (2.4g) of the ar410 for $25 is the frsky rx4r.

For the guy with the JR Tx, you could get a $30 XJT rf module and use frsky receivers, they are the top of the line (same chipset as futaba, different protocol). I have not had a single loss of control or glitch in 11 years using frsky (30K flights), even in the spektrum triangle at my local field, its good stuff and low cost. https://www.frsky-rc.com/product/rx4r/

EDIT: its 16 channels when using the sbus output, and yes, it has twin diversity antennas.
EDIT#2: The Spektrum video says 600~800 feet of telemetry, WHAT??? 1/10 the range of RC control (this does not give you any warning to low rssi, AKA turn around and get your azz back into acceptable range warning), this is a huge fail imo if true. Can anyone confirm the telemetry range of this AR410 receiver?

Thank you all for leaving your comment ... Friends ... again my country begins with certain obstacles to acquire some products, so, I went to a well-known store and bought what I could get today, it is difficult for you to understand , here it is normal .... unfortunately, anyway ...
Friend Brad, I listened to you, I was able to get only one RX AR400 but I took advantage and bought some more, maybe in a short time it gets more complicated here to get material.
Do you want to know the values!? ... then sit down before reading:
AR400 = US 62  affraid
AR410 = US 62  affraid
AR610 = US 94  affraid
It's crazy, but, it's this or NOTHING, so I prefer to go barefoot but have my models in flight ... the passion is almost like madness  ... more here!
Thanks for always helping me! Beer Cheers Hand Shake Clapping Clapping Clapping

They are 29.99 on ebay, at least now you will have good quality receivers.

The mark up in price is quite a bit yes sorry to hear you have to pay so much but at least they
are now yours to enjoy  Thumbs Up  no waiting in the mail wondering if they will show up safely.
What brand transmitter do you use?
