I THINK so. How many different companies can be manufacturing knockoffs of the 6100 DSM2 receiver? They're becoming more common with slightly different packaging.

I'll compare the pcb to the Lemon pics and vids when it arrives

Checked out the powerUp picture. Didnt know they sold that.
Its not the LemonRx. I have one in front of me and measured. Its not as wide as the powerUp and the antennas are different. PowerUp pins look gold plated but might just be the yellow reflection.

If you're going by the specs on the Power Up, I think it has a case on it (probably added by headsup to get their logo on it)... which could explain the dimension and weight difference. I guess I'll find out when it gets here.

Doesn't make sense though that he would have Lemon's product and that he wouldn't just sell it as Lemon brand.


But, then who makes this?

If it was a lemonRx the antennas would go straight out 90 degrees. Thats part of the design made to reduce something or make something better, i forget.

The Asian dude that makes them talked about it in the Lemon thread in Radio section.

Yeah, I've been reading the Lemon thread. From what I can see in the pics and videos, the antennas are 180 degrees to each other on them though, like the Power Up one. You have one, don't you?

Was wondering if anyone has used it. I'm going to go look at a google map of my flying area and see how far 1500 ft is

EDIT: what's the range on the stock receiver?

http://www.headsuprc.com/servlet/the...hz-DSM2/Detail
Not to be facetious, but 1500 ft is over 1/4 mile. Personally, I can't see the orientation of my plane in perfect light conditions, i.e., from behind me to the plane in front of me, without a wing waggle past about 1/8 mile. (Is it turning toward me or away from me?)

If you can, I say bravo. In less than optimal light, back lit plane, even with the Tx held up in front of me to block the sun, it can be worse. I've had my Radian to 1380 vertical feet, (others have gone higher, of course) and no way could I really tell what it was doing. My vision is pretty close to 20/20.

I use an orange 5 channel Rx with satellite in both the Radian and the SC and have no problems even past the rare 1/4 mile - I had many brown outs prior, even with a capacitor as a means to make up for a high draw on the batt from less than perfect servos or high maneuvering. My SC has ailerons controlled by a single servo and a flattened wing, but nothing else out of the ordinary. I live at about 7300'. Just my personal experience.

Fun flyin'

Yep i got all 3 versions here. Gonna be putting one in the superCub and see if my brownOut issues go away.
The powerUp antennas are different because yes they are in the same location. But they dont go out 180 degrees of each other. They leave the RX going straight up instead of sideways. Which is something they do not recommend doing to the lemonRx antennas.

Oh and make sure you cover the ends of the old brushed motor leads--that would be bad if they touched

Makes no difference. If the motor runs backwards, reverse any two leads.

Just so as you get this right, the throttle wire on your ESC connects to the throttle terminal on your receiver. This lead also supplies power to your receiver from the ESC.
The battery connects to the two power leads on your ESC and the three leads on the load side of the ESC to the motor.
As robschonk says, if the motors spins backwards just reverse any two of the three motor leads.
The battery and motor leads from the standard brick should just be taped out of the way.
Good luck!
