DX7 rx compatibility

I have a gen1 DX7 transmitter. Can I buy any of the new receivers and expect them to work? Obviously, features like telemetry would be out of the question but it's getting harder to find the older receivers.

All true DSMX receivers support DSM2

Additionally, Horizon does offer a DSMX upgrade for DSM2 Tx's.

So yes, you can just buy a new receiver. Note that AS3X and SAFE do work with DSM2, but you lose the ability to adjust gain on AS3X.

Awesome. Thanks. Is the gain factory set to a reasonable setting so adjustment isn't absolutely necessary?

For the BnF/RTF receivers factory gains are preset to very solid settings.

For the standalone ones, you have to program them from a PC or Android/iOS device before AS3X is enabled, so you retain control over the settings (you just can't tweak in flight beyond selecting canned settings per flight mode).
