Title: The radio transmitter polls
Post by: anwar on April 01, 2009, 01:19:35 AM
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.

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 !

Post by: anwar on November 30, 2009, 09:09:59 AM
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  8-)

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

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 !  ;)  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

Title: Radio : Futaba or Spectrum
Post by: Cessna on July 24, 2012, 05:32:52 PM
Hi All

Happy to see all R/C enthusiasts at one Place.
I am new in this Forum.

I want to purchase 7 channel R/C 2.4 Ghz radio . But in a fix between Spectrum DX7s 7 Ch with AR8000 NO SX's MD2 [SPM7800] & Futaba 7 c . I  want to use radio for Airplanes & Heli,s both. I heard Futaba 7c better than Spectrum DX7 in terms of reliability when Spectrum uses Technology DSM2 . But now it is DSMX  . Anyone Suggest about selection of Radio . Can Airtronics or Sanwaa be a better substitute for Futaba or Spectrum ?


Title: Re: Radio : Futaba or Spectrum
Post by: SphereHobbies on July 24, 2012, 05:56:35 PM
Hello

This could be a very good point of discussion. What is better Futaba, JR. Sanwa, Spectrum etc... etc.. This list cannot end. Like all other products in the market, every product has one better feature to attract the customers.

Here what we suggest,
1. Simply do not look at the technology and features. Try and find out which company gives you better product line up for the hobby. Meaning if you are flying airplanes and want to try helis, would that company (Futaba, Spectrum etc..) have the product line up to support your next step?
2. How easy it would be to get the spares and other required products? (Prime question as we are in India :-\)
3. And finally, which product is used at the field where you would be flying. This is important as person who would training you might have different product and it might not match with your system.

If you decide (which we think you should) to go for Futaba, we generally have required sets in stock. Visit www.spherehobbies.com/india

Good luck and happy landings.

Spectrum has some good features like telemetry while futaba does not have telemetry.
but telemetry is really useful during flight ? have doubts?


Title: Re: The radio transmitter polls
Post by: anwar on July 25, 2012, 12:06:48 PM
With the world going electric, telemetry (of "remaining battery capacity") is extremely useful to such fliers.  Many people on our field are considering switching to radios (or thinking about getting add-ons) that provide this particular metric.  This allows them maximize flying time while preventing over-discharge of lipos. 

Futaba telemetry is available only on their highest end radio now... it will trickle down to others soon.

This is the single biggest reason for considering a telemetry equipped radio, as this is something that is useful every single flight.

When you are considering radios, some of the other considerations usually are :

1) Ease of charging and duration of how long a single charging lasts.

2) Availability and cost of additional receivers (if you have multiple aircrafts).

3) Compatibility at your field (for trainer/trainee sessions, availability of second hand receivers etc).

Basically think about things you will need routinely.  Not the one off stuff that you will need once in a blue moon.

I don't think that's true. I am using DSM2 since more than an year and there are no reliability issues.
Buy the one which offers good features at a good price!

Not sure that is true any more.  You are probably considering the active RC community of yester years.  The new reality is that shops like RCBazaar and RCForAll are now selling hundreds of Turnigy style 2.4Ghz radios every few months.

Plus many (most?) of the long time RC enthusiasts have now moved on from Mhz bands to the 2.4Ghz bandwagon.   

Just visiting any active field with lots of active members itself should put things in perspective.

I don't think that's true. I am using DSM2 since more than an year and there are no reliability issues.

Ah.. the radio wars again :)   

There are long threads here on this subject.  I am a Futaba user, so consider my take on this biased !

The simple fact is that DSM2 was replaced by DSMX.  The question is why ?  There are literally thousands of people who are happy with DSM2, without a facing any problems in many many years.  Yet, Spektrum changed the standard.  The reason, from what I could gather, is that there are indeed deficiencies in the DSM2 design that causes issues in overcrowded gatherings. DSM2 also seems to have a higher share of "unexplained" crashes/lockouts/whatever.  If you want to get more information, just search the US forums like RCG.

From an RF link stability perspective, probably Sanwa/Airtronics is the highest rated.  For multiple reasons (one of which is lack of proper marketing), it did not catch as well as it should have.  Futaba's FASST system has also stayed the same from day one, and is also considered a very very robust link (although they had other problems like some receivers being affected by heat, which was noticed and fixed couple of years ago).

These days, all 3 of these are similar (Airtronics, Futaba FASST and Spektrum DSMX).  Make your purchase decision based on features that are useful to you, cost of the system and availability. If I were to get a radio now, I would probably be torn between Futaba and Spektrum.  I am not that excited about Airtronics for only the reason that it never gained critical mass (which is not really a valid reason when you think about it, but does have implications on the field and in terms of resale value).

Don't know sir, but all the polls i have seen conclude otherwise

http://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=194243

Out of 111 users, 77 are DSM2 and 26 are FASST.
In that, 5% DSM2 users have experienced failures and 7% FASST users have experienced failures.


Title: Re: The radio transmitter polls
Post by: anwar on July 26, 2012, 12:38:41 AM
Many polls are misleading. Search for "unexplained crashes" on Google with the different brands, and read the threads from the various forums.  More importantly, there was a time when FASST had temperature issues plus a duplicate ZGUID issue, so polls from those times may indicate that.  What you need to look for is the actual reason for problems, and when you take out issues like manufacturing issues in particular batches etc (the ZGUID and temperature issues for Futaba etc), you will see that DSM2 has more unexplained crashes than FASST. 

Here is a post by Sushil bhai (sushil_anand), who has also come to the same conclusion :

http://www.rcindia.org/for-sale/futaba-14-ch-rx/msg35917/#msg35917

The fact that DSM2 had to be changed into a frequency hopping system (DSMX) itself proves the superiority of such FHSS systems (or hybrid FHSS systems, rather).  Both Airtronics and FASST have been freq hopping systems from day one.

Not trying to start another radio war but the high number of people using Spektrum radios is due to the influx of all those micro and bind and fly (BNF) models in the US which sometime come with a Spektrum as RTF or can only be flown with a Spektrum (BNF). A good marketing strategy on the Horizon Hobby part so most beginners begin with a Spektrum radio. I fly at busy flying fields and have seen many "unexplained crashes" and have seen many people moving away from the DSM2/DMSX when they advance in the hobby.

Well I used to have Flysky TH-9x then sold it but it was a Good Radio. But I See 74 % of the People Are using HK/KDS/FrSKY/Turnigy 2.4Ghz etc.
And then comes Futaba In Line.
Regards,
Aman. :)

One of the most famous brands known for their price and reliability and OEM the flysky. I am using FS-th9x from couple of weeks before that FS-ct6b.

FlySky is famous enough for price, and to a certain extent features

But build quality and reliability could do with a lot of improvement. Unfortunately that improvement comes at cost

See Reply # 76 above. If and when you move to larger models, which are significantly more expensive, and more importantly more potentially hazardous, reliability becomes paramount. For these small electric park size models, and FT type Depron models, I guess FlySky will do

The first time I got my rcb6i...... I thought I had among the beat radios in the market..😂😂😂

Would you recommand us to use Hi-tech transmitter for balsa rc plane?


Title: Re: The radio transmitter polls
Post by: K K Iyer on September 25, 2018, 11:53:25 PM
Would you recommand us to use
Hi-tech transmitter
for balsa rc plane?

Hi-tech?
What did you mean by that? Top level vs entry level?
Or Hitec (brand)?
Iím using using a Hitec radio that is still upto current standards after 12 years!

And the choice of the radio has nothing to do with whether the model is built of balsa or not.

This poll needs modification - FrSky (Taranis series) is becoming increasingly popular thanks to it's unmatched features and reliability, coupled with the flexibility of Open Tx and needs a separate listing, not clubbed together with others

RCB6I of rc bazaar is good for me.

but for fly sky- fst6, it is totally wastage of money. i want to know experience of  other fst6 users

I have a fs-t6. It was good. I used to connect it to the computer to train on simulators.
Once it was connected to another computer and worked fine. But when i came home, I found the channels were reversed and I couldn't enter settings or restore to default settings.
I contacted flysky but they did not help.

Actually this is supposed to be a poll, ie you vote, not talk about radios


Title: Re: The radio transmitter polls

But I think the poll is now closed

FrSky Taranis X9D+ 2019

My First Radio after going through and considering all the ranges of Transmitter.
Initially got inclined to Budget Radio but considering I'll be using it as my sole transmitter for next couple of years. And want it to be reliable and have extensive programming capability, I zeroed in to FrSky Taranis X9D (almost bought FrSky Q X7) but I preferred the additional Switches and Sliders on X9D for Gliders.

My preference is mostly Gliders and powered Gliders. And am using Mode 1. (both thumb and pinch).
