Possibly Changing Transmitter


Hi all, been flying this plane for a while now, learning IMAC. All of the setup has been working well.
Iím thinking of selling my DS12 and using my DS16. So what would be the best receiver setup since the 900 NG isnít an option.
I donít totally understand the difference between dual path and clone mode.

I like the CB200, 3 x R3's (one is wireless switch). I start this setup at the 100cc size plane.

But which is better, dual path or clone?

I like to get telemetry from all RX's so for me all my planes/jets are set up dual path...

Ok thanks.
The plane has a Rex7 in it now, and I have a couple of those and a R7 plus on hand. Any of these will work wonít they?

Yes pretty much all the RX works with the CB’s….

So you know the advantage of the Rex RX is a dual ExBus connection and more computing power…I used a few R7 and R9 not a problem

So if Iím lucky enough to get the model transferred from the DS12 to the DS16, can I expect the throws, trims, and mixes to stay the same, other than switches of course?

Yes,

But you will be missing the sound on events if you have them….

If I remember the set-up for the CB200, it has to be dual path. I could be wrong.

Mine are set up dual path.

IMAC 4 LIFE!
I'm setting up a CB210 with 2 x R3s. I can bind the two R3s separately but when I connect either R3 to Rx1 on my CB210 it doesn't see it. Problem with the CB210? It's brand new but I've had it for over a year but never set it up until recently. Thoughts?

Iím probably not much help here, but be sure that R1 in Central Box is set to Exbus. Itís been a while since I set mine up, but donít remember any issues with it.

The R3 port for exbus is the EXT make sure it’s set to ExBus……and you should see the CB210 under the RX1 , otherwise your connected to the second receiver switch them around…..

It’s a simple setup as long as the TX see the Receivers

The CB RX1 and RX2 are set to ExBus….

If you still have problem take some photos ….
