I don't want to seem like an idiot here… but I just read something that has me wondering.
I fly Futaba stuff; mainly a 12Z, with a few models still on an old 9Z upgraded to 2.4 but still have the 72mHz module. I used to fly JR, and know that you canno mix the two on 72mHz. So I assumed the same was true of 2.4gHz.
Then I read just now, in the manual of the E-Flite UMX Radian mini-glider… "When using a Spektrum DSM with a Futaba transmitter, you must reverse the throttle channel and re-bind."
WHAT??? You can fly a Spektrum receiver with a Futaba transmitter on 2.4?
I'm relatively new to 2.4, so sorry if this is common knowledge. And apologies for not searching… but I want to fly this thing today, and if I can set it up on my 12Z, I can not open the DX5E transmitter only I bought for it and get a full refund.
