Default Spektrum AR6210 6-Channel DSMX Receiver

Does anyone have one of these ? If so has it worked well. I have one coming from HH to replace a 600 right out of the box. Do you need to place it in a foam plane in a special way? I see it has a second module with an antenna. Any help would be great.

AR6210's are excellent receivers and they work well. There are actually two receivers thus the main RX and the satellite. Orientation is best so that the antennas are 90 degrees to each other. Space them as far apart as the wire that connects the two allows.

Yeah
I've got one in my Edge 540T. Its been flawless so far.

As indicated above, place the second receiver at right angles to the main receiver several inches away. Like putting one on the floor of your model, and the other on one of the sides. Methinks with a foamie, even if the two antennas are not at 90 degrees from each other, while flying away you won't be able to see the model long before that receiver runs out of range. These 2.4 Ghz radios typically have a range measured in a mile or perhaps much more.

Long as you have solid receiver power, this unit will do the job.

Plugs same as the one you are replacing... just use double-stick or velcro to mount the sattelite somewhere convenient.

Bind and off you go. Shouldn't even change the trims.
