New Spektrum TELEMETRY receivers AR6600T/6270T/8010T/9030T/9320T


After ages and with every other major manufacturer having receivers with integrated telemetry it seems that Spektrum product management woke up from their snow-white's sleep and brought us this (release date August, according to a big Austrian hobby-shop).

They are moving in the right direction. We are still missing a telemetry enabled sum-receiver like the AR7700. Every heli pilot with a FBL system and copter pilot is waiting for something like that....

Also "official" links available:

Edit: Added 8010T, 9030T, 9320T.

YES!

Given the minor extra cost of the AR6270T and the fact it's end-pin, I see a lot of glider guys liking it.

As long as they get them into stores reasonably fast these are going to be a real hit. They just solved my biggest issue with Spektrum.

Still a bit pricey for what they are, but overall a major win.

Also bind buttons on the Rx. No plug needed.

That's good, because it's the latest addition to the Sailplane line (AR6250, AR6255, AR6260...).

Wanted for breaking Ohm's Law

They look promising. If I read correctly there is no built in altimeter, so if you want that you need to add the external sensor?

Does this use the same telemetry sensors as the TM1000?

Yes, since it has the X-bus port that the TM1000 has.

Yes, the only built-in Telemetry is Rx voltage & signal (which is typical for telemetry RX's from all vendors)

It can't have an integrated sensor and be used in competition. A few months back people were complaining about us and telemetry and such, and I was saying we had a plan, etc. This is what I was talking about.

Thanks Andy,

As another glider guider, I greatly prefer having a vario/altimiter as a separate unit.

That way there's never any doubt as to what's installed in the bird. I'd rather have a separate unit for the sensor and zero questions as to what's SAP-legal or Competition legal.

Nice fact: The 6600T has an additional remote RX port. Even better coverage.
Please Spektrum don't ruin it this time with a buggy firmware. Have it tested really and thoroughly.

And release one with a different firmware for copters/helis (SUM, Remote RX and SRXL).

Yes please one with Remote rx or SRXL output would be awesome for us Heli pilots!!!
