Radio Gear / Re: Help, it's been a while
Last post by FlyinBrian - July 10, 2020, 06:59:26 am
If you like Futaba and need SBUS and or telemetry (SBUS2) you will need a new Tx and rx. Check out Futaba's website for the latest info on Tx's but the least expensive SBUS and Telemetry capable rx is the 3008 which is an S-FHSS rx. If you are serious about staying with the hobby, bite the bullet and get a T14SG (getting a bit old now likely to be super-ceded soon)  or 16SG which is newer. These support most Futaba protocols and for cheap and cheerful models - foamies etc there are third party eg FrSky rx available for around ┬ú25

Quote from: FrankS on July 09, 2020, 07:59:04 amAs Dick says SBus is just a communication between the receiver and device, so if the Rx has an Sbus port then it should communicate with the flight controller.

Another option would be a Frsky FASST rx with SBus like this one https://www.t9hobbysport.com/frsky-tfr4sb-fasst-compatible-2.4ghz-4-to-16-channel-receiver

...or one oh these, https://www.xtremepowersystems.net/products.php?cat=8
I have used XtremeLink® X10 + Channel Expander V2 with Flysky SBUS and Multiplex SRXL and it works very well.

/Ville :)

ps.
When it comes to Mpx SRXL, it is only with Multiplex receiver RX-9-DR SRXL16 M-Link that you get 16 channels via the SRXL protocol. With the other RX- (X) -DR receivers, including the compact versions, you only get as many channels as the receiver is intended for, eg 7 and 9 channels respectively.

It's interesting to read his own description of his life story (which is on the web) which includes several periods when he was away from the business "doing other jobs". I suppose all those mailbags don't sew themselves...

Definitely the ST Discovery for foam.  The Arising Star (or Seagull Boomerang) for a more 'massy' i.c. ARTF.

First flight with this big 1.5m twin EDF scale jet. Took minutes to assemble and setup. Explored flight characteristics on the maiden. Looking forward to some more flights.

Dear All
I received a pm from Essential RC expressing an interest
in attending this event. Everyone is welcome at my events.

So we will now have potentially four high class video/photographers present.
At least we should have plenty of pictures.

Regards Phil G.

No markings whatsoever so it is a .19 - strange that in the table of the picture above it lists the .19 turning an 8 x 4 prop faster than the .25  ???

 Not really, bore / stroke /porting / engine moving masses etc,,
 the .25 probably runs more efficiently with a 9 x 5, 9 x 6 ot 10 x 4.
