The new Spektrum compatible receiver with diversity and PPM output. Diversity offers the benefit of two antennas that can be position differently. The stronger signal will automatically be selected.
|Type:||DSMX Compatible PPM 8-Channel diversity antenna receiver|
|Number of Channel:||8 (PPM signal)|
|Modulation:||DSMX Compatible (Also DSM2 backward Compatible)|
|Dimension:||25(L) x 35(W) x 7(H) mm|
|Voltage Range:||3.45 - 7.2V|
At last, a PPM solution for Spektrum users. PPM allows full 8 channel communication over 3 wires (power, ground, signal). This gives a very clean setup and frees up the pins on your Naze flight control board so they can be reassigned to other things like GPS, OSD, telemetry etc. Also features configurable failsafe.
Please note there are no traditional PWM (analog) outputs on this receiver - it is PPM only.
Channel mapping is TAER1234 (same as Spektrum). Here's the mapping of aux channels from a DX8 to a Naze control board
Comes with bind plug and double sided tape for installation, Be careful with carbon fiber frames to ensure the pins on the bottom of the rx are not making contact with the electrically conductive frame.
A failsafe position can be set in the even the rx loses contact with the transmitter (but still has power).. You choose the stick and switch positions you want and set those in the rx. If you don't set a failsafe, everything will remain as it was when you lost communication. i.e. if you were in forward flight or ascending rapidly, it will continue to do so until the link is restored.
To set failsafe, plug in bind plug, provide power, set transmitter sticks and switches to desired positions and press the failsafe button.
The green LED will light up indicating failsafe has been set. Remove bind plug. The green LED will remain on, indicating a failsafe value has been set.
To disable failsafe simply rebind without pressing the failsafe button. The green LED will no longer be lit.
