You have a good point in that you should buy the same brand radio gear as
the club instructor and make sure you can "buddy box" with him/her. I had a
lot of problems teaching a new member to fly because I had a Futaba radio
system and he had a JR. We had to resort to the "snatch the transmitter
away" mode of instruction. However, I wonder about incompatibility of two
radios of "the same make and model series". Could you elaborate?

For the most common, less expensive radios, I know of no such
incompatibility. There might be something about trying to connect
really expensive high-end radios together, but the average beginner
normally ends up with a simple, inexpensive 4-channel radio that was
designed to buddy box with its own kind.

My Futaba 6XPS is not budy box compatible with the 6X without PCM
modulation. Since the 6x is the most common at my field, this greatly
limited who could instruct me.

Hi Sisyphus,

Is your Futaba 6XPS not compatible with a 6X when you as slave are in PCM?
Or when the master is in PCM? Or both in PCM?
I'm greatly interested, as to complete my website by mentioning such "small"
and irritating "details".

Thanks in advance,
Olivier

Re: Incompatibility? Was: Need ideas for first RC plane

Gladly,

My 6XPS will slave/master with another 6XPS, provided they are both
transmitting with the same modulation, (PPM or PCM). The 6XPS will not
slave or master with a 6X, no matter what the modulation is set for.

(I have only touched a few of these radios and cannot rule out the
possibility of slight product variations or malfunction)

Regards,

What is a 6XPS? What is a 6X? I've never heard of either model.

Neither of these is a current Futaba model in the USA, and therefore
such information will only be confusing to the newbie.

We regularly connect various models of Hitec and Futaba transmitters
to Futaba 6XASs, the current model in the USA, and it always works.

Re: Incompatibility? Was: Need ideas for first RC plane

Gentlemen,
To clarify, he is 100% accurate in that the 6X, as an entry level
radio similar to the 7U, cannot have a PPM (FM) slave box when the
master is in PCM. Therefore, if his student radio is PPM only then he
cannot use it for training.

However, the misunderstanding is that just because he purchased his
system as a P (6XAPS) he believes he can do PCM while his insturctors
radios cannot. All 6X's ever produced and sold, at least in the
states, can do both PPM and PCM. Your instructor need only change the
setting on his radio, turn it off and back on, and you are compatible
and ready to fly.

Sincerely,
Mrs AnnMarie Cross
