OrangeRx Spektrum DSM2 Compatible 6Ch 2.4Ghz Receiver


I saw people selling this receiver for 39.99 on ebay (they should be a shame). You can have it for $12 with swarm instead on 14.95.

I joined the orange rx swarm but the wait logo just keeps on spinning like it won't complete.
If I try again , do I have to buy 2??

I think it went through.

Don't worry about the spinning wheel, look below that and while logged into your account, enter your email address on that line and click the enter swarm sale button. Then wait for another 4 people to do the same and you'll get an email with a code to put into the checkout area.

guess I'll find out in the morning.

BTW please post the time when you enter the new swarm so one can tell when the 12 hours would be up.

You can get the 30C lipo for the same price for the swarm sale.

I know this is a few weeks old but I agree. For me, the Turnigy's are better than all of them at HobbyKing. Better & last longer than the Flightmax, better & much lighter than Rhino. I've never used Polyquest, nor have I ever seen anyone else use one, but they seem excessively expensive & if I'm gonna pay $70 for a 3S LiPo I'm buying Thunder Power. I remember reading a while back, some talk about who makes the cells for Thunder Power, a company called Enerland. Supposedly some of the Polyquests are supposed to use Enerland cells. I'm not sure though and I've never seen it confirmed really anywhere.

Polyquest do you Enerland cells, they are from S. Korea. But these new Nano-tech lipos from HK are awesome too.

Anyways, I started a swarm sale of my own on some Turnigy Motors for building a hexacopter or octocopter.

I'd probably like to participate in a swarm sale but why not list the items you would like to get without creating the swarm. Wait for 6 people to agree they want it too and then start the swarm. I only check this thread at most once a day. But if we agree to a future time to create the swarm some time after we get at least 6 wouldn't we have a better chance of getting this to fly??
Just my $.02
