Spektrum DX8 Transmitter compatible receivers
« on: September 29, 2020, 08:22:09 AM »

Good morning guys,
I am looking for compatible receivers for my GEN 2 Spektrum DX8 DSMX transmitter which I bought about 18 months ago.
At the time I purchased the transmitter only with a view to upgrading the receivers in 4 of my boats to work from the DX8 transmitter.
I was planning to buy compatible ORANGE receivers as many of my fellow club members use them in the their Spektrum controlled boats, however i cant seem to find anywhere that now stocks them. The main reason for choosing Orange receivers is budget. Also I don't need the full 8 channels on some models, so a receiver with fewer channels is not a problem.
Does anybody know of an alternative? Any help/advice is greatly appreciated.

Try Hobby King, Hong Kong.  Good prices, reliable supplier.  I don't know about UK / Europe, but they stock a lot of stuff here in Australia so delivery is  usually quick and reliable.

The 'new' no external antenna genuine Rx's are not a lot more expensive than the orange/lemon versions in 4 and 6 channel.
I tried a few and found them good , before changing to FlySky, now their Rx's and telemetry gizmos are both cheap and good.
