More SRXL2 Receivers coming - AR8020T, AR8360T, AR10100T, AR10360T


We've known about the AR8020T for a bit, as some metadata on Spektrum's website leaked its existence to google, but no details until now.

The certification details for the AR8020T just hit the FCC website - https://fccid.io/BRWSPMAR8020T/

Obviously this is the replacement for the AR8010T

Some details:

8ch end pin. A return to a single-row design like the AR8000, not the stacked dual-row 8010T design (so no more plug orientation issues). The manual specifically calls out decasing & heatshrink as a solution for tight installs. The Bind/Prog/SRXL2 port is the same as on the AR6610T & AR637T.

Button bind, SRXL2 remote, X-Bus and voltage sensor ports on the top (no temp/rpm, I hope new X-Bus versions of those sensors are coming.

Remote is optional, a first for the 8ch units.

Antennas are carbon-friendly, so this is a viable F5J RX

Alt/vario included.

For all intents & purposes, this is an AR6610T with two extra channels. All the 6610T features are there including the ability to set failsafe & trigger bind mode from the Forward Programming Menu. Looks like a real winner, but anyone flying fuel will need to consider if they care about temp/rpm data and either stock up on AR8010T's or wait for Spektrum (or a 3rd party) to fill that gap with an alternate sensor.

A couple typos in the manual, specifically it calls out 'Using an AS3X SAFE receiver requires a Spektrum DSM2/DSMX compatible transmitter with forward programming. The non-SAFE AR6610T and 8020T have no such requirement, they can use forward programming or the traditional bind method of setting.

The AR8360T is all new, or well I suspect it's the replacement for the AR7350 as Spektrum isn't doing new 7ch receivers since they don't make a 7ch radio anymore.

Data here: https://fccid.io/BRWSPMAR8360T

It's clearly the AR637T equivalent, matching the AR6610T/AR637T pair, now in 8ch form. Case is identical to the AR8020T aside from labelling. It does include vario/alt data (I think that's the new standard for Spektrum)

And it's SAFE. Finally a SAFE receiver with more than 6 PWM ports...

What is the typo? That it didn't include the AR8010T as well as the other two?

Two things.

1. It lists the old GPS sensor, not the new one (assuming that's a typo because they differ only by 1 character).
2. The sentence at the top of page 6 of the AR8020T manual applies to the AR8360T, not the AR8020T. (no requirement for Forward Programming to setup the AR8020T as it can have bind & failsafe set the traditional way, FP is merely an option)

Note the Optional Accessories table on Page 11 should duplicate the one from the AR8360T manual, the remotes are missing from the AR8020T version of the table.

So does the AR8360T have AS3X and Telemetry? Is it basically an AR637T with 8 channels instead of 6?

I think so, in the manual it says 8 channels, telemetry and AS3X. Probably the same features as the ar637t.

AS3X, SAFE & telemetry.

By the looks of it, you are correct in calling it an 8ch AR637T.

It brings SAFE to the higher channel count crowd. This will be great for warbirds as it will run retracts or bomb drops plus a full 4 servo wing plus SAFE & AS3X

I have an immediate use for this.

I wonder how long until it becomes available. This is what I have been waiting for.

Great news.

Build to fly, fly to fix
This is great news especially regarding the AR8360T. We have been waiting for a full house glider receiver with enough channels and built in vario, since the AR9320T was discontinued.

You'll want the 8020T for that, the 8360T is the stabilized version, but both have varios.

Any idea when we can expect to get these in our hands?

No idea, the FCC posting has to be prior to announcement, but timelines can get weird after that.

I've seen some get posted a week or two after announcement, but others were 3+ months (the iX20 was almost 6 months between FCC docs and release, but that was an oops where Horizon forgot to request the filing be kept confidential until a particular date)

Updated the title to reflect more new receivers coming.

2 10ch units, the AR10100T and AR10360T were dropped on FCCID.io over the weekend.

Some changes vs the 8ch units.

They're about the same width, but thicker. 7 servo ports and the bind/SRXL2 port in normal orientation, plus 3 additional servo ports underneath. No remotes are included.

They also see the return of the RPM and Temperature sensor ports, plus they now have 2 SRXL2 remote ports and a micro USB port (so they should not need the SPMA3065 USB programming cable).

SAFE is included on the AR10360T, The AR10360T indicates up to 7 channels can be used to control SAFE/AS3X functions (flight mode, panic & up to 5 gain channels) just like all the other SRXL2 stabilizers. Of course all of those functions can be on channels higher than 10 so you don't lose PWM ports.

SAFE Failsafe is now a thing (actually introduced in the AR630 literature, and I expect the AR637T has it now as well)
