As stated in the review I bought a DG-1000 and then got assigned one for the review. The picture with the non Futaba receiver also shows a repaired crack in the trailing edge of the wing near the fuselage. That was the one I bought. I was anxious to get it in the air and flew it with radio gear I had on hand. If I had looked closer I wouldn't have posted that picture. My bad.
The newer "review" sailplane has only flown using Futaba radio gear. I purchased the Futaba receiver for the saiplane. No attempt to mislead. I am pretty sure it would fly nicely with the Multiplex and Airtronics radios I have reviewed in the past.
