I wholeheartedly agree with that.
There seems to be no chance of a lockout. Oh, and the SPC connector allows you to keep constant power to the RX so if your BEC sags on you and you lose control of your servos, your RX will not lose its bind and will immediately work as soon as the BEC provides enough power to run the servos.
Ah, exactly like a DSMX receiver, very good!
Oh yeah, if you do like to use Lipos for your TX, Hitec makes it easy as it runs on a 2 cell lipo. Spectrum has an unusual voltage need when compared to lipo voltage....
What? We use standard a LiPo (low C, perfect for transmitters). Nothing magical about the voltage, iit's the same standard values as anything else! When fully charged (8.4V) the Spektrum battery will last for several days of flying before needing a recharge. It even alarms you when the voltage is getting low so you can land and recharge if needed.
And for re-charging, there's no need for a special wall wart or anything. Just feed it 10-15V AC or DC and it's happy.
