Transplant a Walkera receiver on a Trex Clone?

Hi again. I'd like to transplant a Walkera receiver (off of my crashed Creata) and transplant it to a KDS 450SV (no flymentor) because I'd like to use the Walkera 2801 Pro Transmitter instead of the one the KDS comes with.

So, both receivers have claim the same number of channels. The Walkera actually has an extra slot. Both are 2.4 GHz. And, I believe the channel allocations are the same (and I'd make sure if I do the transplant).

I'm just not sure if this will or (since I'm new at this). I a bit worried about blowing the KDS' ESC or Gryo. Also, if it did work, would need to manually reset all CCPM and tail servos? Actually, the Creata isn't a CCPM it's a NOR. Would that make a difference?

Thanks again.

The Walkera's receive say 2801. I did try a swap but the spacing of the channels or shape of the plugs is the problem. They're too close.

I tried using my Walkera transmitter (2801) with the KDS but do luck.

Thats a standard reciever isn't it not 3 axis. Some of the servo connectors have a tab so that they only plug into receivers one way and have to be removed for universal use check that but be carefull about the polarity when plugging them in if you remove the tab worth looking at also I have one spektrum reciever that my servo plugs have a very tight side to side fit and it takes some fiddleing with to get them in Good luck. I found a picture of your reciever and it looks like it has the slot for the keyed servo connectors so forget that idea bummer

Not a problem. I was able to get my KDS' transmitter sorted out. Elevators kept working in reverse (and using the REVERSE setting wasn't helping). Turns out, I needed to turn the elevator swash mixture -50 to get it to work properly.

I took mine out of my crashed Creata, and it's working fine in my pro clone, I've got an rx2702v to go on the clone when I upgrade my transmitter to the pro version, and when I repair the Creata the rx2801 will go back on that one. The clone flys great with that receiver though, I'm running 3 turnigy mg90s on cyclic, an emax es9257 on the tail and a copter x mem gyro. It runs a treat!
