receiver compatibility

Just received Flyzone's new DHC-2 Beaver for Christmas.
Can I use a Spectrum AR500 receiver in lieu of one installed ?

yes, but flaps will have to be on channel 5 (gear channel) meaning you'll have to mix your flaps channel to the gear channel to control them from your usual switch/slider.

AR500 receiver use

Thanks for the response. Can I just use the gear switch for flaps instead of flaps switch (DX6i) ?
Also, this plane has lights. Can these switches be plugged in ?

With just a 5 channel Rx you will need a Y-harness so you can plug the lights in parallel with one of the other channels. The lights just require power, no signal needed.

yes, just using the gear switch will be fine. Lights can be plugged into any channel with a y-harness.
