Default Easy Glider. Which Spektrum rx?

Hi,

I'm looking at an Easy Glider electric/Pro and am considering which receiver to get (I have a DX7 tx). Is there any point in going for a AR6200 with the benefit of the satellite rx or is a AR6100 just fine?

The concern I have with the 6100 rx is range and the concern I have with the 6200 is will both rx units fit in an Easy Glider.

Which one would you fit?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers,
Lee

I use 6100s in many planes, with no range problems.
There is a loss-of-binding problem with my 6100s.
I will have to re-bind after not using that receiver for awhile.

I used a 6100 in my EGE for a long time. I moved to an AR7000 when I wanted that 6100 for another plane.

If you get the AR7000 or the 6200.....you wont have that nigling feeling in the back of your mind "is my reciever up to this distance". I have an AR7000 in my EG PRO The remote reciever just velcros on with a tiny patch under the canopy. Plenty of room. I wouldnt use a AR6100 in anything but a park flyer. In fact I think here in Australia the AR6100 isnt approved for use in anything.. AR6200 is minimum.

I would not recommend the 6100 because of range. I am using the AR500, which is full range, and will provide enough channels

I would go with the AR500 which is rated "full range" and offers more than enough channels for most applications. Also priced well at $59.95
