Compared to the non-clone JR and Futaba prices, you could build in rx's in each airplane.
By the way, HK shipped my radio! I better start bearing down on those manuals.
Thanks again for the great help.
As it turns out all of the different systems are only compatible with themselves. It has to do with how they communicate and transfer data. So Spektrum will only work with Spektrum. Futaba only with Futaba and so on. Now to make things confusing the 9x radios are all made by a company called Flysky in China. Then they get rebranded with names like Turnigy, Eurgle, and some others. There is plenty of information to be had in the forums about which ones are flysky and so will work together. Another issue you may run into is V1 vs. V2 of the Flysky receivers. Probably you won't find a V1 receiver anymore but if you are unsure post a link to the receiver you want in the forums and someone will help you decide if it would be right.
