DT 2.4GHz Spektrum Compatible RX's "NOW" available from BSD

I thought I'd let people know that the DT Spektrum Compatible receivers will soon be available from BSDmicroRC here in the US. Here's the web site for Dave's receivers
http://www.deltang.co.uk/

The receivers BSD will be stocking are:
RX33 (plugs compatible with PZ linear servos)
RX35-V (plugs compatible with JST ZH equipped servos such as Blue Arrow)
RX43 (actuator receiver)

Note that the actuator receiver works with low resistance actuators such as the 50 ohm Plantraco and similar actuators. Fly actuator planes with your Spektrum transmitter.

I will be using one of the RX33 receivers from BSD in an outdoor 20-inch Cartoon Pitts I'm working on. It will use four Parkzone linear servos and the DT receiver. This will be my outdoor micro-ish plane for NEAT.

[edit: recievers are now on BSD's site and available for sale)

Prices are listed in pounds on the DT site I linked above. Convert those prices in pounds to dollars and the BSD prices should end up very close to those.

Think Bob can start a trade-in program? Send in Plantraco stuff for DT discounts?

I doubt it. The fact that Plantraco has been running 2 for 1 "sales" on their receivers for close to a year now tells you something about demand for Plantraco gear in a Parkzone-Centric micro RC environment.

Total newbie question here: The 1s power lead gets soldered to the PCB, right?
I see no plug-in in the Deltang photo/specs.
Also, brushless requires an external ESC?

Yes, solder power leads to the board. The onboard ESC is only for brushed motors so you would need an external ESC if going brushless.

Here's the BSD site:

www.bsdmicrorc.com

and the page for the DT Rx's (2 for servos, 2 for actuators):

www.bsdmicrorc.com/index.php?categoryID=42

Seems like reasonable prices, I bought one RX43 direct from the UK site a month ago (just received it about a week ago) and with shipping it cost $50 so that shouldn't be too different from BSD's price ($48 + shipping?). Sure is a SMALL Rx (going to really challenge my soldering skills since I got the one without connectors and those pads are REALLY small). Hopefully get around to trying it out in another week or so.

I have purchased two of these directly from DT, and before the DelTang website went up. No problem binding to my DX6i.

As for Plantraco trade-ins, keep in mind, that there are at least a number of these Rx's that have an actuator mode.

More details on the already mentioned DelTang website.

Actuator Rx for really small models, for the servo models not being stuck with the AR-6400 brick layout and need for multi mixes in some applications and more convenient if using a Futaba/Hitec Tx with Spektrum module.
