Lemon RX Boast...
 
Just FYI.

I fly Orange Rx mostly, and love them, but I ordered a few Lemons and satellites.

Put a lemon in my Griffwerks MX2, and flew my third flight with it.

My Taranis with the Orange module, needs the antenna removed to fit in the case, so I forgot to attach it.

Flight was un-eventful and was in about a 4 acre area with no antenna on the TX.

I would never try this on purpose, but the lemons seem just as good as the orange rx ones.

+1 on Lemons. I have several. Not crazy about the packaging of the 6 channel as they are little flimsy. Need to add a blob of hot glue to the antenna's. I use a toothpick and glue the antennas to it.

The 7 & 8 channel versions come in protective cases. I have a couple of 8 channel with satellites' and just ordered a 7 channel DSMX with stabilizer for $19.00 . Binding to a DX9.

I've range checked them against the AR600 and Orange and they check out great.

Many will differ but frankly, I would not be afraid to put these in anything.

Cheers,

Hawk

Hi Hawk
Just wondering, one very important issue with any receiver is its ability to operate in a very crowded fun fly like Joe Nall, where you could have 100 transmitters all turned on at once.

That would be a very good test on those 2.4 Ghz receivers. Spektrum does have a video where they did exactly that, flew with 100 transmitters all turned on at once.

So, question, has anyone used one of these Lemon or Orange receivers in a very crowded 2.4 Ghz radio frequency environment?

Denny,

The most I've ever flown with at any event is with 7-8 in the air at one given time. I'm not a crowed skies guy.

I'm not bashing Spectrum at all but if you study the Lemon, it's not a counterfeit by any means. Compatible yes. There's a very long, 308 page technical thread over on RCG:http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1773138 if you're into that sort of discussion.

I just want something that works consistently and affordably.

If all my planes used Spektrum, I'd have 5-6 less planes. LOL

Spektrum is not too bad price wise in comparison to Futaba but I can buy a six pack of Lemons for less than one AR600.

Hi Hawk
It's all ready been established that the lemon receivers work well in "back yard" type models with a dozen or less 2.4 Ghz transmitters turned on at the same time.

I'm still wondering if anyone has experience in flying them in those giant RC fly-ins where perhaps a hundred 2.4 Ghz transmitters are turned on, both on the flight line, and in the pit area. :cool:

That would be good to know, both positive and negative responses. :D

Orange does fine... I can attest to that. (Joe Nall and SEFF this year)

Heck for me it was as many as three on at once that we're just mine and my kids', with over 50 on the several flight lines.

That is good information, thanks.
