Can I use a AR6200 without the second receiver/antenna?

I have a spektrum AR6200 that came with my dx6i. I was wondering if I could use it without the piggyback receiver/antenna on my EXI450?

Yup just figure out a place to mount it. Alot of people mount it on the tail servo, there are alot of options though.

Don't remove the satellite, even though the RX will work without it.

Why? A 450 heli is dangerous, and the satellite makes the link far more reliable. The weight is negligible.

There's no need to use it if you can't find a good space. I used to run a AR7000 on my 450 but I now have been running a 6100e, same IMO but lighter.

Then again the 6200 is lighter than the 7000.
