AR635 First Stand Alone Spektrum RX with AS3X


Just found out today that next week a SPMAR635 Spektrum 6ch Sport Receiver will be released with AS3X technology. RRP is £79.99.

See Below full information now available:

Product Description
Key Features

Combines the security of DSM2®/DSMX® technology with the precision of the AS3X® System
Designed for park flyers, sport planes, and 3D airplanes
Compatible with all Spektrum™ DSM2/DSMX and JR® DSM® transmitters
Three AS3X System settings: Sport, 3D with non-computer transmitter, 3D with computer transmitter
Fully-adjustable, dual gain settings for aileron, elevator and rudder

Overview

Bring a whole new dimension of precision and stability to your 3D or sport flying experience with the first 6-channel full-range receiver with AS3X® technology for park flyers, sport aircraft and 3D planes—the Spektrum™ AR635 sport receiver. Its built-in AS3X (Artificial Stabilization – 3-aXis) System counters the effects of wind and turbulence using 3-axis sensing and exclusive flight control software tuned by world-famous RC pilot, Quique Somenzini. There is no delay in control response or limits on the control throws. You'll simply feel like you're flying an expertly tuned model that does exactly what you want it to.

No special interface or transmitter programming is required. All adjustments to the type and amount of stability the AS3X System provides are made using LED indicators on the receiver and your transmitter's control sticks. You also have the option of flying with the AS3X System off, but even expert pilots will find flying with it on feels completely natural.

Going by the part number, I should imagine it is a AR600 receiver with AS3X built in.

Wonder which servos they recommend for it?
Would digital metal-geared be up to the task?

combination will cause several issues, including oscillations and
unwanted reaction.

so, will dual channel ailerons possible? ie. will we be able to set up our own dual aileron config or limited to mirrored aileron ch like the micro bricks?

Differential, spoilerons, flaperons etc.

manual is pretty helpful in answering questions like this.

Thanks, I must have missed that.

That is disappointing.

The manual does say that mirrored/reversed aileron channel is an option, so strictly speaking a Y harness wouldn't always be required.

Looks great, I would prefer independant wing/elevon control but maybe that will come in a future release. Will give one of these a run in a turbo raven I am building for Spring.

does £80 not seem a little pricey?
