Need Help ID'ing Transmitters NOW WITH RCVRs

I have been given a large batch of micro RC gear. It came in boxes and was largely without instructions, manuals and unidentified. Since I received these things it, I've been trying, without much success, to determine what the stuff is, and its usefulness.

My interest is to build micro a/c and fly them in my yard, about the area of a two or three basketball courts, so I don't think range is a real issue.

I need to know what aircraft they were originally designed for, what receivers would work with these transmitters, and where I might find manuals for each.

Will any of this gear work with the AR6400 receiver?

Are they "bind and fly" and will work with a number of receivers or are they "aircraft specific" and will only work with the plane they were built for?

There are 4 types and I will post fotos below.

Thanks for any help/info you can offer.

This would be Group "A" . The markings indicate that its Parkzone and is 2.4 GHz. There is also "Minimum 3" written on the front.

Here we have group B. This one is also marked Parkzone ... but has a larger ETOMIC sticker on the bottom. The sticker also indicated "2.4 GHz Spread Spectrum Radio.

Moving along, we come to Group C.

This one is a Tactic 2.4 GHzx. TTX402

The sticker indicates that it is a 4 channel and has "Secure Link Technology".

Unlike the others, these transmitters have NO external antenna.

This one is labeled Flyzone, FZT-324. It is also 2.4 GHZ and the stickers on the face indicate that its a 3 channel micro radio system.

Wait untiI I post the pictures of the receivers and motors/gearboxes.

Again, any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.

ParkZone Cessna transmitter. May also work with the micro RX out of the early Kyosho micros. The "brick" looks like a Vapor brick with a red LED. If you don't have the RX brick to match it, you might get a few bucks for it in the classifieds.
Check the link for more info and pics.

Group B is a DSM2 transmitter and should work with most spektrum Rx's. It will not bind to a surface rx

ParkZone Citabria, Ember transmitter. Same compatibility as the last TX you posted. ParkZone Cessna, Citabria, and Ember. The ParkZone micros were not DSM2 until the Ember 2 was released

I think these will bind with with FlyZone brand gear, but I'm not sure if it is only the early (pre-Anylink) Playmate and Albatros, the current generation, or both. Check Flyzone, Hobbico, Tower Hobbies sites for documentation.

If you didn't get any receivers with the lot, you'll have to decide if you place a wanted ad for a compatible RX (buy CHEAP only) new AR6400L clones are ~$20 @ targethobby.com, sell them off, or usher them into the dumpster.

You should also be able to get a DSM2 compatible TX that looks like the one in your second post in the classifieds for ~$20 or less.

The tactic TX's will work with Tactic bricks, which can be had for cheap from people converting their planes to Spektrum. These are 4 Channel and 1.7g servos will plug in. They are a little heavier than an AR6400, but aren't too bad.

OK ... now its gets a bit tougher.

I have 6 different types of receivers ... all without any identifying marks. What makes this tough is that what manuals I can find generally do not show pictures of the receivers.

Above I labeled the transmitters with LETTERS.

I am labeling the receivers with NUMBERS.

If possible, could we match transmitters with receivers (i.e., A-3) and, as above, perhaps tell me which manufacturer and plane each came from?

Thank you for all your help.
