AR635 First Stand Alone Spektrum RX with AS3X

Just found out today that next week a SPMAR635 Spektrum 6ch Sport Receiver will be released with AS3X technology. RRP is £79.99.

See Below full information now available:

Product Description
Key Features

Combines the security of DSM2®/DSMX® technology with the precision of the AS3X® System
Designed for park flyers, sport planes, and 3D airplanes
Compatible with all Spektrum™ DSM2/DSMX and JR® DSM® transmitters
Three AS3X System settings: Sport, 3D with non-computer transmitter, 3D with computer transmitter
Fully-adjustable, dual gain settings for aileron, elevator and rudder

Overview

Bring a whole new dimension of precision and stability to your 3D or sport flying experience with the first 6-channel full-range receiver with AS3X® technology for park flyers, sport aircraft and 3D planes—the Spektrum™ AR635 sport receiver. Its built-in AS3X (Artificial Stabilization – 3-aXis) System counters the effects of wind and turbulence using 3-axis sensing and exclusive flight control software tuned by world-famous RC pilot, Quique Somenzini. There is no delay in control response or limits on the control throws. You'll simply feel like you're flying an expertly tuned model that does exactly what you want it to.

No special interface or transmitter programming is required. All adjustments to the type and amount of stability the AS3X System provides are made using LED indicators on the receiver and your transmitter's control sticks. You also have the option of flying with the AS3X System off, but even expert pilots will find flying with it on feels completely natural.

I wondered how long it would take someone to come out with an integrated Rx with AS3X. I will be watching with interest and probably purchase one. I have the Mig 15 with AS3X and love it.....

I enjoy the added comfort of stabilization when flying AS3X or other stabilizer gear. However Spektrum listed it in the US for $120. I would prefer an add-on module for say $40 that would use my current AR8000(2 each) and AR400(6 each) receivers before buying new 6 ch receivers that I don't need.

I thought that as well. Maybe they will add a module that would work with any tx. There is some major advantage here in reducing a lot of goo in space and wire. Probably more acurate and fast then injecting more levels of indirection.

I have a couple of the Hobby King V1 units and they seem to work pretty well although the pots are touchy to get adjusted to your liking.

I have no faith in HK products. Airframes maybe, but not electronics

Horizon Hobbies and Tower Hobbies along with my U2 from Hobby People have not let me down. My purchases of ARF from HK have still never flown.

Hopefully someone from Horizon will respond on Monday.

Well you could buy the asx and save the rx from that plane for another plane you don't want/need to stabilize. I guess using that logic, you save the price of another rx for a new plane. I think the combo does have some noticable advantages in space, wires, power, etc.

I agree. I would buy one quickly for $80 but $120 I can just fly the plane myself with the sticks. It's harder in wind, and AS3X is a dream because of the 3 inputs, but the price point is to high for park fliers

Looks like a good unit for a newbie flyer but the price here in New Zealand will put a lot of people off, I guess it would retail here for at least $200nz dollars

For years - the equipment at a pattern contest has been defined into specific weight and size.
Also no electronic help from the tx is allowed .
Real world.
Having watched a really good flyer win Expert flying an ARF .20 powered model, the fact that the really good flyer will have the best chance of winning - irrespective of equipment - holds true.
But the idea of others having some "advantage' discourages the less accomplished flyer -or newbie.
Does the AS3X help?
you better believe it .
The little SBach does excellent lines up/down - rolls- knife etc..
It shudders a tiny bit after flick maneuvers . as the "gyros" center up.
A SBach pattern class would be interesting - stock model - so all the difference would be skill. cheap and fun. but probably not of interest to someone who has been stoking a $$$$ into their dream pattern plane.
