I'm wondering if they will make 7ch ones (like the AR7000) to use with the DX7...

No doubt it's only a matter of time.

One wonders if they're all coming from the same place. It's odd that there's suddenly a flood of 6100 clones hitting Ebay and HC at the same time. Good price though...if they work.

So how do you find these new clones on ebay?

I've tried every combination of DSM2, spektrum, compatible, clone, AR6100, 6100, orange, and can't find anything

Just curious - I agree, let someone else wring them out and see if they're any good before I even consider buying one.

Of course, since these are technically obsolete right now (replaced by the AR6110 ones), who's to say they're not offloading these ones at bargain-basement prices?

AR6100/AR6110, easy to mix them up when they're not seen side-by-side. I didn't realize they were the older models. Still seems like a great price if they're dependable. I just checked out a "6100 vs 6110" thread to refresh my memory on the difference. From what I read the 6110 features 3 upgrades: smaller size, antenna orientation configured for better diversity and a diagnostic light. If the 6100 is as dependable as the 6110 the savings seems worthwhile in my book.

Your link appears to be broken...

I think this is the one you were shooting for. https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...0&postcount=45

It's interesting because he is aware of legal issues yet he is cloning them himself and charging more than he recommends people should pay for a clone from other (re)manufacturers.
