No, not a single one. The AQ was born with a Spektrum connection.

Also DSMX

I bond a satellite via the AR9020 on DSMX (via my DX18)

Than I connected the satellite only to the AQ6 and needed to put it on 11bit otherwise it is not working!.

Conclusion, DSMX is working here.

Drowned my Dex Autoquad on thursday - got it back on friday. Thanks to Dennis Frie for jumping in after it...

This is the first (and hopefully last) time I have filmed fish with a Quad

First LOL (sorry) luckily you could disconnect the LiPo quickly

Serious, why did it went down? empty LiPo?
(sorry for your crash, but great fish video)

Oh Jussi! Sorry for your crash But great video The fish coming to check it out is priceless... LOL And then I thought you'd hook the quad with whatever that pole was, for sure. So close! 20 hours in the water... ouch.

Maybe time for Menno's signalling add-on and a nice loud buzzer! Hope she recovers OK.

Oh boy, hope you'll be getting her back in the air. The AQ board still looks good - the ESCs don't.

Greetings to Dennis, must have been your hero of the day!

Again -

KA-PLOOSH!! (far right).

We were so close as we went fishing for it, the line is only an inch or so from grabbing it - Priceless!

Trivia - This image was shot from a quad in flight.

Yep, Dennis Frie was the hero of the day. And now our latest Beta crew member...

I am not gonna reemploy the ESCīs, but I am hopeful that the Motors and the FC could have survived...the baro is dead for sure and bearings will need to be replaced...everything has been rinsed in clean water and cleaned with alcohol afterwards.

But I am just glad I got the Frame and Cam back! The Dex frames are hard to come by and the recording is priceless. I would not go as far as to say it was "worth it", but not too bad..and the rest can be replaced.

Speaking of Dex, Denis just showed his new Pro8 frame. What an amazing frame, simply stunning:
