HobbyKing SuperMicro 2.4GHz system... New brushless brick!


SUPERMICRO RECEIVERS ARE NOT DSM/DSM2/Spektrum/ASSAN/FLYSKY/FRSKY/FUTABA COMPATIBLE. You can however connect a Spektrum satellite receiver to the SuperMicro transmitter module. Then it works like this: Spektrum radio -> Satellite -> SuperMicro Tx -> SuperMicro Rx

"Perfect for indoor flyers and anyone who likes to tinker with micro sized air craft. The hobbyking indoor 2.4ghz system has a host of optional receivers, ESCs and all-in-one units available for your custom projects. When keeping compent weight down is critical the the SuperMicro series is one of the most affordable and simple solutions on the market today."

Oh man!!.....

Just in time for the indoors season down here!

That in line twin servo is perfect for thinner fuses like the micro moth etc!

I received early samples of that system from the manufacturer some time ago. Worked fine. Looks like they have made some improvements on the layout. Nice to see they still offer an actuator RX. Actuators are still the way to go for really light aircraft.

I like the double servo as it works well for slimmer fuselages where an AR6400 brick won't fit. And yes, there is only 3 wires going to the RX! Obviously it will only work with the dedicated RX but work it does. Stick the RX on the back, remove connectors and solder leads directly onto the RX and you have a slimline brick weighing under 3 grams for around $25.

dang, does anyone know how to jerry-rig a module into a trainer port? i'd really like to add another module onto my futaba, but it'd have to go through the trainer plug.

I do. I'll take a picture over the weekend.

Thanks for the heads Up MT!

How does the twin Servo work. It looks likes ints intended for ailerons.

I'm trying to figure out how it does Rudder/Elevator with only 3 wires. Seems like a 4th wire would make it 100X easier.

Is that the MULCH in the RX doing this?

Probably some sort of multiplexing. It will work for rudder/elevator.

I read that the twin servo will operate both sides with a normal receiver, or as seperates with their receiver. It sends a twin coded signal to tell each servo what to do.

So...is HK-X600F good for my Futaba T7C? If it's good.. I will be very habby with a less than 1g receiver
Thanks

The receivers should be DSM2 compatible if they expect to sell them in any significant quantity. Few people are up to screwing with yet another proprietary system.

The servos look good, but I'll bet every listed weight is a lie and they come with "the heaviest wire know to man". "Without wires" is code for "we are lying about the weight because it is actually heavier than our competitor's product". It will be interesting to see some real world weights.

Edit: Just noticed the servo plugs are AR6400 compatible. Cool

I'm pretty sure I know the answer, but I'll ask anyway..

Will that JR module work with my Dx7? Or as I'm suspecting these only work with the older FM/AM systems.

I'll weigh the servos and post the weights here. I decided not to stock them because of the lack of DSM2 compatibility. I did ask the mfg if they had any plans in that direction but didn't get an answer.

Since I don't have a TX that uses modules I had to hack the module so I could connect it to my TX. Simple enough to do though.

The DX7 has no plug-in ability, the JR module will work with some JR Tx. It can be made to work with a DX7 but it will require some surgery! Another excellent choice for DSM2 system is this:

Fitting a 2.4Ghz module to a Tx that has no module compartment.


Dear epilot,

I am in the same boat. I have an old HiTec Flash X5 and I want to surface mount one of these modules to its back and connect the cable extrernaly to the training port using a DIN plug.

1- Are you talking about a similar method of mounting the module/ attaching the cable? Or did you mean that you will be taking the guts out of the module and soldering these inside the Tx case just like is usually done with a DIY (Hack) module?

2_ Would you know if the antenna on this module will clear the Tx carrying handle on the Flash 5x when the module is surface mounted on the back of the Tx case?

3_ Any chance you might show us some photos of your own conversion of your Tx to take this module?

Regards

MM
