Tx & Rx's
« on: 25 May 2012, 11:20:39 AM »
Hello all,

Looking at moving over from 27mhz to 2.4ghz soon, so i'm looking for a new Tx with rx. I cannot use or like the wheel tx's so it must be sticks.

Surely I could use something like below?

http://www.spektrumrc.com/Products/Default.aspx?ProdId=SPM5510

Surely I can use the other 3 channels which are switches to control lights etc?

I don't want to spend a lot, but I want a good named brand too.

But then theres the acoms unit for £39 around the net.

Cheers

that spektrum is designed for use with aircraft and not realy suitable for a car , throttle stick is unlikely to be sprung , only one channel ( not 3 ) will be  switched , youre better off with a 3channel designed to be used with car/boat

Lol always with the spektrum vs futaba. I might switching over but that would mean I have to buy 7 new receivers or use a spektrum module that sci mentioned. Means lots of money!

I would say airtronics but I think that's the same brand.

I use the etronix pulse and the only prob I ever had was running it with my 4 cell mardave nicads . Towards the end of a race (when the battery level dropped) it used to cut out . Sent it back to them as I had tried many different remedys ie capacitors and current equalisers that never helped . They sent me a brand new unit and it's worked fine since . Got one receiver in my mardave hotrod , one in my stock car and one in he drifter . Love all the different car profiles and throttle curve adjustments .
Anyone around the high wycome area want to drift .... www.wycomberacing.co.uk ......message me for info + dates and times

I used Futaba for years ( dating back to the old m series ) I would have gone with them when I switched to 2.4gig but couldn't afford to , I now have the Etronix with 5 receivers so I'll be keeping it for the forseeable future .

Yea, futaba is fawking expensive. I like the look but the price! went with spektrum because 75% of the track uses spektrum. And you guys know me and sneaking around the track buying stuff!
