I have used the HK system now on both my DX6i and newer DX7, both 2.4 Ghz and had no problem hooking it up to the antennas.

There is absolutely NO interfearence with the Tx radio. As with the radio and RX you have to bind the receiver unit to the transimtter unit but it is very easy to do. I have had my plane fly quite a distance out from me, actually a bit too far to be comfortable, and there was no loss of signal to the Quanum receiver and the readout remained crystal clear.

For only $60 I thought it a great deal. I really like it and once you use it, you will never want to go back to guessing how much power remains in your batteries while flying! Say goodbye to ESC cutouts and dead stick landings flying electric airplanes. ( Extra Tx units can be purchased seperately to put in additional airplanes)
