Walkera & Spektrum

Hello All,

RC Newb here wondering if a Spektrum receiver will work with Walkera Helis. I read on Helipal.com that Walkera would NOT work with Spektrum receivers. But I wanted to verifiy that first and make sure that wasn't good Ol' Advertising to buy a Walkera transmitter.

Thanks for the info,
JD

The two systems are not compatible. There are ways to remove the Walkera receiver and install a Spektrum receiver in the heli, most of them are discussed in the Microheli forum and some require either a boost converter to power the receiver or a modified receiver to work on single cell (assuming you are looking at one of the smaller helis).

Generally speaking 2.4 radios from different manufacturers are not mutually compatible. In some cases, the same radio (e.g., FlySky) is sold under different labels (e.g., Turnigy, Eurgle, etc.). Spektrum DSM2 technology is used by some JR radios.

Not sure what radio Walkera is using but for sure it isn't compatible with Spektrum.
