Question about the new Spektrum AR7200BX - BeastX

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi Guys,

Last night going through some of my previous purchases from LHS and I mamange to exchange some for a Spektrum AR7200BX, I was wondering regarding the Spektrum AR7200BX - BeastX if installing on a Trex 600EFL Pro would you recommend in using an extra satellite?

Also, could I use the USB key of the BeastX alone to upgrade and use it to upgrade and play around with the software?

And if anyone has sometime to load some photo that would be awesome.

Best Regards
Chris (Heligunner)

Re: Question about the new Spektrum AR7200BX - BeastX

I would absolutely use a satellite receiver on a 600 sized helicopter. There's lots of carbon fiber that can easily block radio waves. When I had mine on my 600 ESP, I mounted it on one of the rear mounts, and then mounted the satellite receiver on the opposite side of where the antennas came out. It worked very well. Sorry, I don't have any pictures of it. It's no longer mounted on that heli.

Satellite makes sense and is recommended in the manual for anything over a 450 I believe.
Why are you wanting to upgrade it? I have two flying now and the software has been flawless so far.
