I have a DX6i and I've been waiting for these to come out. I'm clueless though.

What spectrum rx uses "micro JST" connectors? I don't knwo these interfaces and I've only dealt with horizon boards with integral servos.

I think we should wait till someone actually gets one.

Why?

HobbyKing are notoriously creative with their descriptions of things like connectors.

If it's the MICRO JST that's the one the AR6400 brick uses. If it's the MINI JST, that's the one the AR6300 Nanolight 6Ch Rx uses.

Knowing HK it may well in fact be neither of these, but the Futaba mini style Molex connector they fit to their 2.2g servos. Sigh.

If you buy the kit only and not the RTF, you can fit whatever gear you want.

I ordered a PNF Mig and an ARF Sabre and the 370 Nanotech batteries.

Should be fun to mod.

JJ, thank you very much for explaining the entire situation. I'm not going to be buying stuff that isn't plug-and-play with my DX6i. So I'll wait and see if the RX-ready setup is what is best. If not, a kit and Spectrum goods are what I'll need.

I really like the look of the AR6300 setup. Not held back by the onboard servos.

If these end up being any good, you know Horizon will be embarrassed by being beaten to UM EDF. People who know nothing about RC are very interested in EDF. Jets... are jets.

NitroCharged - great minds think alike mate! I've also got the MiG on the way with some HK MiniMan servos, and will use a 8/10A ESC I've got here at home. Receiver will be a HK DSM2 dual-antenna thing, they only weigh about 3g.

Afraid - You got it on the Jet thing... people love them. The sound, the looks, the speed all add up to make an attractive package. All my mates ask the same question about a plane, to: 'How fast does it go?'

BTW just a quick question, does anyone have experience with the 350mAh Flightmax 20C 2s packs? I ordered four of them to go in the MiG but have no idea if they'll let out enough current or not. I've got a NanoTech 370mAh 2s for comparison if they're duds, but knowing beforehand would be nice.

Cheers - boingk

Thing is it works out cheaper to pick up just the airframe versions. The PnP retails for $60 and then you add $22 postage, making it an $82 bird. The ARF retails for $35, servos for $10.50 (3 x $3.50) and ESC for $7, with postage at $22... making for an identical bird at $75, or $7 less.

If you already have a suitable ESC or servos at home then it technically costs even less, as it the case for me. I've got an 8/10A ESC lying around that was supposed to be used in something that got a better ESC instead, so I'll simply use that.

Another advantage is not having to use a micro-connector accepting receiver as the supplied servos (and ESC?) with the PnP version have those tiny little white JST connectors instead of the more usual JR-style.

Cheers - boingk

Kit on it's way!

Having a look at the photo, this could quite easily handle a 40mm fan, even 45 would fit. I'm planning on using 30mm though, as I've got a fist full of the suckers. 100w should do nicely, and it looks like the fan should be easy to swap in/out. Could make for a good aerial test platform.

(That, and the mig looks sheckshy!)

I was thinking the same thing, Odysis... it could easily take a 40mm unit. I reckon these little things might just be good to keep light though, and see what you can get from the 35mm unit they come with.

That goes boom, you can always shove a 40mm in there!

I've got one F86 and one Mig on the way to fly stock for a while, and one F86 to mod all the way. Different decals, different fan, different power system. I doubt it will ever go 100mph, but who knows...
