Taranis Qx7 Receiver
« on: February 05, 2019, 07:21:22 PM »

I have purchased a Taranis Qx7 Tx (EU version) and now find myself looking for a receiver to suit my needs (without costing the earth!). I had not anticipated an array of 44 to sort through!. I need 8 PWM channels. Extra bells and whistles are no problem but obviously they push the price up.
Can anyone recommend a modestly priced Rx for a model boat that is compatible with the EU version of the Qx7?

Many thanks Spud!
The X8R was the one that looked promising to me. I couldn't be sure it was compatible with the QX7 (although the Tx manual implied that it was). T9hobbysport make it clear!
I'll contact them Thursday (I'm out all day tomorrow).

They are local to me and their prices are cheaper than eBay china
First class service :-))


I'm using 2 with my 9XE







I made a little structure to support the antenna. No idea if its of benefit but works so far

To be most effective the aerials should be at 90 degrees to each other. One from each receiver vertical and one horizontal. You could set them at 45 degrees to give a V with 90 degrees between the arms.

Iíve been there too Jim  :-))  but after lots of reading and advice from others I concluded that for boats as opposed to aircraft the set up I have is most beneficial
A whole subject in itself but mine works fine vertical/vertical  at 90 degrees to each other

Very impressive Andy ,
Have you been to the shop ? , do they have the transmitters out on display?, I've only used their mail order service.


Thanks

Hi Spud
Yes Iíve been to their sales counter but only a few on display as they are predominantly mail order
I bought my transmitter from hobby king a little cheaper before I discovered T9 otherwise I would have bought there

Be careful now as you have a EU version when buying receivers, try to buy those marked EU LBT, or aternatively re flash your tx to global. My Taranis is running 2.1 opentx in global, and I found out about the EU flash when I bought an EU receiver and couldn't bind it...


Don't know about the QX7, but flashing an Rx on the Taranis is a pain in the backside
