spektrum dx7,AR6100 receiver

would a spektrum dx7 and AR6100 receiver work with brushed motor and its speed control? or that is two different families we are talking about? if any of that works, what are the combinations? thanks

Radio talks to receiver so DX7 and AR6100 = OK
brushed motor requires brushed esc = OK

If your esc has a Futaba style servo connector you may need to trim the excess plastic off in order to fit the port style of spektrum but they will talk to each other just fine.

Simply no issue. If the ESC connector fits the receiver, it will work.

Why don't you list all your equipment, a photograph of the installation, and settings such as throttle trim? Many ESCs need throttle trim all the way down to arm properly.

We can't help you much without complete information.

the glider has only rudder and elevator, so the AR6100 receiver, has elevator servo hooked to elevator and rudder to rudder. the first goes for the little that used for binding, and throttle for throttle. so for throttle trim down, do you mean the in dx7 menu there is throttle trim high and low? so the low one should go down? and the high by how much. give me an idea so ill start some trial and error.
thanks

What ESC are you using?

To set the throttle trim, you use the throttle trim on the front of the transmitter. You also need to have the travel setup on the throttle to 100% (at least) for most ESCs.

Try this:

Reset the model you have. Re-bind the transmitter and receiver. Make sure your servos all work. Now tell us what is happening in detail.
