4 channel receiver.
« on: November 09, 2016, 05:09:51 PM »

Is it possible to  buy a 4 channel receiver.
and match it into any 4 channel 2 4 Ghz transmitter. ?
I seem to be struggling even trying to find one.

Nope, they can be very brand specific at times. What Transmitter do you have?

In a word, No.
You will need to get one that matches
the protocol of your transmitter, whether
it be the same make or a clone from
our Eastern friends.

....and you will quite likely have to buy a 6 channel one as that is what most 2.4 sets have - but it will still work with 4 channel Tx providing it is the correct make and modulation technique.

That's the exact radio I run, you can get receivers dirt cheap at 'Bang good', I bought half a dozen, not had a single problem with any of them.

These also work with the Flysky/Turnigy i6 and i10 - although without telemetry. I use them with my i6 as I don't need telemetry and they are slightly smaller than the telemetry ones.
