i'm doing it.

yes you can run without the satellite, i can't tell if my full range has diminished at all. I'm running it in a small electric so it doesn't get very far from me.

I was told i could not bind the reciever without the satellite, so i plugged in the satellite, bound the reciever, unplugged the satellite and have been using it ever since without any problems. never lost bind and never had any issues. i was told this basically becomes a 6100 reciever at this point.

never did try to bind without the satellite ... maybe next time i'll try it just to see ... cause alot of people throw out what they've heard without ever trying something for themselves ... which isn't a bad thing, but sometimes we get sidetracked with mis-information.

Re: Spek Ar 6200 receiver

Mine will bind without the satellite. I have read its to do with the firmware. I got the rx in a heli combo almost 2 years ago(without the satellite) and have bound it a few times from the 450 to a parkzone wulf back to the 450.

Re: Spek Ar 6200 receiver

Mine won't bind either without the sat antenna. Also, I was told that ANY Spektrum sat antenna will work with ANY Spektrum receiver...not true...at least not with the AR8000.

The AR8000 and all the new DSMX RX's ARE NOT backwards compatible with the older satellites for obvious reasons.

Also, the AR8000 will not work without the sat installed. Regardless of how you bind it. This may be true for all the new DSMX RX's as well.
