Optic 6?


Was told by Horizon that you no longer make the Optic 6. Only the Optic 6 Sport. Just trying to verify if this is true or not.

Correct, the Optic 6 with removable module is no longer available
ex manufacturing facility in the Philippines.

Doubt it will return any time soon as there is little price difference with the Eclipse 7 Pro
which has additional features and on screen telemetry.

Alan,

One more quick question and I'll get out of your hair. Can the Eclipse 7 Pro be used as a Master with my older FM Optic 6 as the slave without upgrading the Optic 6?

TIA,

Don

No problem at all except for a different cable as the Eclipse 7 Pro uses a stereo connection
rather than a 6 pin DIN plug. Please refer to
. Eclipse 7 Pro as Master, Buddy or Slave

Which also covers Eclipse 7 Pro & other Hitec RCD transmitters,
note there are also schematics for DIY adapters added in post #5, #13 & #15.
