I have yet to use the one that you can hook up a satellite but I'd definitly test them in a cheap plane first. Most of them are park Recievers. Plus they don't have long sheilded antennas so you gotta make sure you put the antennas away from wires and stuff. Today I helped test fly a Nitro to electric conversion 53" Cap 231. The guy had an AR6100 in it. He had it close to the battery and on plane with a bunch of wires. About 200' away from me I lost connection for about 4 seconds. I tried to roll and NOTHING. I ran towards it holding his Tx over my head and regained lock. So before anyone blames anything on clone Rx, remember you still have to practice good antenna placement.
