Default $10 RX for DSM2??

Got this email from HobbyKing...I think a lot of yall probably did as well.

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...Receiver_.html

I have no idea what channels do what on an aircraft RX...but would it be possible to use this on a scaler rig? The compact size should be very easy to fit inside any waterproof box!

Says it binds with any Spektrum DSM2 TX.

I don't see why it wouldn't. Heck, it's only $10 buy it and try it.

The only problem I can see is that it is an aircraft receiver and may have different protocols than a surface receiver which could be incompatible with a ground transmitter. Remember that Spektrum makes aircraft DSM2 radios as well as surface radios which do not play well together.

But at $10 + s&h it may be worth a try. So please let us know if it does work with a surface radio.
