    What aircraft specifically do you have? Since you are going to an Elevon/delta setup, then one aileron servo lead plugs into the aileron receiver port and the other aileron servo lead plugs into the elevator port. You definitely do not want a Y harness for this.

    • I ran into two issues when I was installing an RX600SP this past week. The more difficult to figure out was installing one in a Freewing 80mm F-86. I could not get a change in the receiver when the bind button ("I") on the transmitter was pressed. I found a review on the MRC site that provided the solution. For the gyro to work properly, the gear servo can not be reversed. Once I changed the operation back to normal, pressing the bind button gave a change in the receiver's LED lighting. So, important to not have your gear servo reversed. Second, I installed one in a new 850mm Mustang. I was getting a "pulsing" of the motor but it wouldn't run properly (e.g. fast). I tried a charged battery and it worked just fine. Oops!

      Anyway, just thought I would throw these two solutions up on this site.

      • Im putting this receiver in a fun jet dragon. Okay I got both ailerons moving, operator error of course, the left aileron servo was plugged in backwards, I guess that is why it was making the buzzing. Still having issues, both elevon aircraft type on my dx6e are not allowing the elavons to work together. Moving stick to the right moves only one side back and fourth and up and down moves the other. My dip switch J4 is on, left ail is in elevator. From what I’ve read/watched there shouldn’t be any mixing on TX to get it setup. Hoping to fly it today ????

          It's been said a couple of times. You DO NOT set TX for elevon when you are using a gyro type RX or a gyro. The TX MUST be set to "normal" type of wing. The wing type is ONLY set in the RX or gyro.
          PS. Are you sure J4 is ON? It's a tiny little dip switch. It may not have clicked into position. Try flipping it with something small and pointy until you feel it click. If it's not actually in position, it may still think it's set to "normal" wing.

          • I was on SU-35 thread and looks like there are several posts where people lost the plane using Spektrum TX with Admiral RX. I just finished assembling my SU-35 and was planning to use Admiral RX1000 10-Ch with Eagle A3 Super 3. I have a DX8 G2 and iX12. After reading those post on Admiral RX problems, I am not sure if that's a good idea.

            Is anyone using Spektrum G2 or iX12 TX with Admiral RX with success?

              For the last year have been using an Admiral RX700T in my FMS 1700 F7F with a DX9 and no issues (knock on wood)
              I also use a lot of Lemon Rx's. Dropped Spektrum Rx's years ago after multiple losses on their stuff and their unjustifiable overpricing.

              • Do the Admiral receivers with telemetry show fades and holds on the newer spectrum transmitters?

                • Following for sure! Just purchased my first Motion RC airplane/jet and I ordered an AR630 (which isn't here yet) to install in it. Tonight I ordered 2 more Jets from Motion and decided to get the new Admiral RX600SP 6-Channel DSMX Compatible Receiver with Stability Plus Gyro which I plan to install in the new ones. Not that I'm a "Spektrum Fanboy" or anything, but I've only flown their products in the past. Either in the BNF format or installed it myself. Mostly BNF though. I'm running an IX12 and have been pretty happy with everything BUT, I've had several times that I have lost signal and the last one caused my Conscendo Evolution BNF to meet it's unfortunate demise. I thought I'd give the Admiral a shot and test the waters on the other side of the pond (So to speak). I'll try to post my results and thoughts once I get the new receivers and try em out.

                  • To N4Speed and others,
                    I just happened on this thread. I have flown my Freewing F-4 Phantom with a JR 9303 with a 2.4 Module/Admiral RX1000 10-Ch with no problems. I recently switched to a new DX9 and continue with the same Admiral RX1000. The F-4 continues to fly without any issues. I did recently find that several of my Spektrum satellite receiver "cables" were frayed at the base of the plug which can cause a loss of control so I suggest you always check them and replace with new cables as needed. The cables need reinforcement at that connection point of failure and coating it with liquid tape may prevent the fraying and loss of connectivity.
