View Full Version : Hobbico quick field charger for receiver
01-20-2005, 10:19 PM
I have a Hobbico Quick field charger(Not MK2) that I will trade for a 7 channel receiver for a futaba transmitter.
I have a Futaba reciever that I will trade. Not sure what it is as I am a JR guy. But I will check when I get home from work on the night shift tonight. I will let you know.

Ok let me know. Thanks
The receiver I have is a Futaba FM 7 ch. FP-R107N. The receiver is on channel 44 or 72.670 frequency. Let me know if your interested.

Is this receiver narrow band? I'm not sure if it's the same as older transmitters but I know they put a gold sticker on older transmitters with they were retuned.
Email me at email@example.com
We will work something out.
I'm not sure if there are any "receivers" that are narrow band. It is my understanding that the transmittiers are tuned for narrow band but I not sure if the receivers changed at all when this new regulation took affect back in 1992. You would have to check on that one to be sure.
The only sticker on the receiver is the channel sticker and it is silver with the channel 44 and the frequency of 72.670, which is also the same frequency on the crystal.
I would like to be able to give you more information but I don't have any more on this receiver. I have this receiver because it came with a plane I got from someones estate. It was inside the model, ready to fly. This modeler had been featured in RCM for several design and build articles. I would pressume/assume that if he was willing to use the receiver as it is then it was safe to do so. I also noticed that the receiver wire has been soldered. I am trying to find out what the correct length for this frequency to verify that this is not going to affect the receivers performance.

the receiver info you are looking for is at

It's says there that it's wide band. I also read on Futaba's website that if the receiver was manufactured before 1991 then you should replace it.
I would like to know if anybody still uses these receivers, and if they have any problems.
I'm a little bit nervous about putting an older receiver in my plane.
Do you know if the person you got it from used it recently?
I had no idea this receiver was that old. I'm not sure that I am confortable with the idea of you using it. To me it sounds like nobody should be using it. I was also wrong about narrow band and wide band with reference to receivers, I didn't think there was a difference. Now I know. I think I am going to pull this receiver off of the bargaining table.
As far as what the previous owner was going to do with it, my understanding is that he installed it into a plane that he just finished building and had not flown before he passed away.

How much for the charger outright?
01-23-2005, 04:13 PM

To bad it's an older receiver. You don't happen to have any pictures of it with the cover off do you? I'm looking for a ceramic filter out of a futaba receiver.
I don't have a digital camera. What does the ceramic filter look like? I have the cover off as I type but I'm not sure what to look for so I'm not sure if mine has one. Do you have a picture of what you looking for?
At $30 bucks I would like to see a picture of the charger if you can as I might buy it from you out right. I want a charger that I can use to charge my radio batteries at the field.

I don't have a pic of the ceramic filter I need yet. I'll send you one if I do actually need it.
Here are some pictures of the charger. It's works perfectly, the only reason I'm selling it is because I bought a triton charger.
Do you have the original instructions that go with this unit? How old is this charger? Did you buy it new?

I have the box and original instructions. I'm not quite sure how old it is but I can find out if you really need to know. I bought it from a friend who sold it because he bought a computerized charger. I've only had it for a year and mybe turned it on 3 times. I never really needed to charge batteries at the field until I got my Zagi. But I bought a triton for that.
