Will failsafe be triggered by lack of input, when PPM is used?

In any case, I like this modular idea and I am happy to hear the FCC would not be involved. These AMA expo samples...would they be take-home-to-test samples?
No, they may not even be functional samples if they don't get back to me in time.

When will the 10 channel expander and the connecting wire to the Nano receiver be available?

No release date, but I am showing prototypes at the AMA expo this weekend.

A little concerned about that snap-on coax connection. It's fine inside the radio / TX module where it doesn't move around, but could be troublesome inside a fuse? I assume these are the RF modules we're looking at?

Are the 10ch boards in yet?

looks nice, i suppose you will supply antennas of various lengths?
a question; what happens if the two connectors are rotated so that they touch.
(accidently, of course)

The RF unit will be inside of the case with the snap-on u.FL connectors glued. All you will see is two coax wires.

10 channel boards and RF unit boards won't be available until March.

No, there is only one length, which is a tuned coax (yes, it does matter). That length is 230mm with a 28mm strip. The connectors won't rotate, but if they did, they are both ground so nothing would happen.

Thanks for both responses Jim. I'm going to allow myself a little "woohoo!" on that date.

Given this expander and RF unit, are you still contemplating that integrated 9-channel with telem or is that over with now.

Out fo curiousity - why are the antennae longer for these than the nanos. I suspect this is a simple question with a complex answer...
