which receiver to use

Hi fella's

I know that you have to use long antenna receivers for carbon fiber fuse, but do you still need it if you got a fiber glass fuse or can I just use my spectrum Ar 7000 or 8000 with Satellite.?

Re: which receiver to use

Fiberglass poses no problem for radios. Unless there is something funky in the resin you should be fine. Do a range check from all directions around the A/C and have fun!

Be aware of what paint might be on top of the fiberglass. Some paints are not RF friendly.

Electric flying is pretty much seeing how close to a dead short you can run without setting it on fire.

Re: which receiver to use

Like David C says... range checking is a must with any new aircraft radio setup. Yes the paints that would be first suspect are the ones with any metallic particles in the pigment ( paint makeup). Also be suspect to iron on coverings that had metallic pigments in their makeup . Ultracote made a line of coverings that used a silver base with colour pigment that caused problems with radio signals getting though the material. After the first batch , a few years ago they also added a warning to the instructions...... but then who reads instructions as all too many have the answers. LOL

Range checking would show up the problems.
