Just want to let everyone get an idea of what radio/TX is used by most people.  This would help newcomers make purchase decisions.

If your radio is not listed, please reply here and we will add it to the list.

Also, if you are using a module on a different brand, then you should vote for the module brand. For example, if you are using a Spektrum 2.4 module on a Futaba radio, then you should vote for Spektrum (since it is the actual transmission technology you are using).

Anwar ,
I think you should split this poll to transmitters and receivers . I would suggest you include multiple choise within  each section as well and consolidate the results only . may be like a questionaire.The reason is as per the current scenerio  receiver brands are not restricted to the radio Eg . Saju uses a Graupner Radio with a Turborix receiver in 40 Mhz .
Especially more so among electric flyers , I know of glow flyers  who use corona synthesised receiver with  a Futaba tx .
You get receiver brands like turborix/ Art tech  that are compatible with futaba tx.In fact Art tech has a switch to switch beteen JR and Futaba . Corona Synth. has automatic shift .

If you can split the Tx further into computerised and non computerised  this is what will make a lot of sense for beginners.
The reason I say it is because there are a few people who use External V tail mixers  to fly elevon planes with a non computerised radio.

There are a lot of persons using E Sky and E Fly Radios as well as they buy these as a combo with ready made RTF's and then use the same radio with other planes . Eg in My case I got one with the E sky Honeybee  but I have used this radio to fly my Tiger 60 as well.

I myself have Futaba Skysport 4 , JR 8 , Turborix 6 channels and E Sky Tx 's  and receivers of Futaba , JR , Corona Sythesised , Turborix , Sunip , Arttech etc .

I myself have sold from the time I started in excess of 50 radios manufactured by W FLY but sold under brands like Turborix , W Fly , SAPAC . I have had no complaints from these .
I have also sold GWS 4 Channel radios

Hence trends are changing and the poll should reflect these .
In my opinion it should be an on line questionaire with only results dispalyed  for it reflect details that would be useful to a beginner.
I know of beginners  who have bought very high end radios due to confusion which would not help them in any way

Hello Sai -

The simple response to your concern is that this is a "transmitter module" poll; more than a "transmitter" poll or a "receiver" poll. 

I am aware of the fact that people use various combinations, but I was trying to aim at is what exactly is the "brand" that is doing the actual "transmission of the signal".  I think that makes the whole issue simple to look at.

We can of course have a separate poll for receivers, but it is kind of difficult to have multiple choice polls using the SMF software we are using. 

I will add the brands you listed to the poll choices.

Also, this is why I urge everyone to post their hangar.  They can list their equipment there, including details of the receivers they use.

In fact, this place could get a lot interesting if everyone made one thread for each RC model they own, with the details of all the major parts that went it setting that model up.

I use both Futaba 2.4 Ghz and Spektrum 2.4 Ghz.. But i have voted for Spektrum since Futaba is lying around with dad right now.. Double Thumbs Up for Spektrum.. not a glitch or a problem till date.. Golden Rule for 2.4 : Keep the voltage high enough and you are safe!!

Since people are always interested in this topic (and there have been heated arguments over this), I am bumping this topic so that newer members of the forum can vote.

If you have more than one radio, please vote for the one you use most of the time.

We have over 400 members as of now, and only 38 votes !

Hmm.   Out of 41 votes so far, we have 22 for FM/Mhz bands and the rest 19 for 2.4Ghz.  I was hoping that the majority is 2.4Ghz even in India already  Roll Eyes

We have more than 50 people logging in every day, but only 41 votes. Please continue to vote, if you have not done so  Thumbs Up

Some help needed please...
I have 5 makes of transmitters with me

1. Sapac (40Mhz) and (do not use this much now)
2. Esky 4 channel (35Mhz) (do not use this much now)
3. Graupner 6 channel (40Mhz) (actually belongs to my nephew... but I use it most as he is settled outside India) In use... very reliable
4. Futaba 6EXAP (40Mhz) switchable to ASSAN 2.4Ghz  In use ... very reliable
5. Airtronics RD6000 Sports (35Mhz)  In use ... very reliable


How should I vote ... or rather how can put all this info in one vote ? I find that if I have to vote further each time, my previous votes get cancelled... In other words, this sytem of voting is based on the premise that each logname has only one vote...

Please help

Actually I made this a poll with 2 votes sometime earlier, since I realized that many people tend to have two radios (or even more, but two are used frequently).  But I also realized that it gives others the ability to influence the poll by just voting for something else that they may not actually own.  So it was safer to just allow everyone to pick the one they fly the most with.

I fly with both Futaba and Airtronics very often... Airtronics is attached to my Easy Star which has an outing every time I go to the field and so does Futaba as it is attached to my Slow Stick and now the 2.4Ghz Assan.
You choose what I should show in the polls. Either way it will be incorrect.

I guess what I meant is, there are very few people who cannot decide or determine what they fly most !  Wink  And if that is a tie, another way to look at this is what receiver will you buy next !

Anwar ,
In case of electrics we  have many models to fly , some park flyers , some gliders etc etc  hence practically all model memory of both my radios are full  as for the receiver  that really is not a factor either  as  Corona 72 mhz can practically be used with any transmitter .

Hence   to know the true picture  restricting  the poll is not   really  the solution  because some might  treat it  as a wish list . May be you could split  the poll into the most popular entry level Tx and the most popular 2nd level radio  that would serve the purpose or the intention of the poll in the first place .

Any poll for that matter is not 100%  accurate at best it gives a general picture hence  even if 90 %  sincerely put their opinion the true picture will emerge.

This is just a suggestion of course  but  rest is up to you

Actually this is very much a non-issue.  The vast majority would have a single item to vote for (because they have "one radio" or one "primary" radio).

Hopefully everyone has seen this topic and voted, because all these discussions.
