Honey Bee FP with Optic 6 radio?

In a cavalier (read: "stupid") moment this morning, I kept the rechargeable AA batteries in my stock ESky radio, and plugged my charger cable into the charger jack on the back of the radio. After a short sizzle and wisp of smoke, I decided that this method would not work and I disconnected the cable.

So now onto my question: would an Optic 6 radio with the Spectra module work with the stock ESky rx without any mods or additions to the rx? I can buy one locally and I had been considering it anyway, so I can have one radio for my two helis and whatever I get in the future.

yes, it will work as long as it is on the same freq. Besides that you can leave the xmitter in airplane mode with a 4 channel heli.

Well, this is weird, but it turns out that my radio isn't fried after all. Though there was a sizzle and that "special smell," the actual problem was an intermittant connection in my battery pack. Why this happened to coincide with my charger goof, I can't say...but after straightening out a spring, I'm flying again.

Thanks for the help Darth...I'll probably still look at the Optic 6.
