In my 2.4ghz switch over, I just pulled out my old FM rx in exchange for a spektrum Ar6110e in my 3D bipe. Before this change over, I've had zero problems with my setup using my Airtronics Super6000 radio and Hitec 555 rx. In the last 2 years, I have converted most of my 11 planes using 6100s and 6110s with zero problems.
At RCX last month,I bought the final few AR6110e receivers to finish my FM to Spektrum conversion.
Needless to say, my first flight with this new receiver was disastrous, about 5 minutes in I lost motor power for about 2 seconds, luckily I was up about 30 feet fighting the wind and saved it. The next brown out wasn't so lucky. I was about to land it to see if the receiver was flashing and just when I made my final turn, I lost complete signal and it went straight in from about 30 ft up. This is my first brownout and it was not fun at all.
This has also been my first crash 10 years. Luckily it was only on a $20 airframe, but my piece of mind has been shattered with this rx.
The motor, battery, servos, esc all seem fine. I put the power setup on the bench and tried to recreate the flight. I'm not duplicating any gliches anywhere. Anyone have any ideas?
It makes me wonder if I had left that trusty Hitec 555 in there and used my 10 year old Airtronics Super 6000, this would have never happened.
So my next question is, Any recommendations for a replacement 3D airframe? My specs again.
