With Spektrum you put the bind plug in as many recievers as you want to bind, you power them up (so that they are flashing in bind mode) and then power up the TX with the bind button depressed. All the RX's should bind.

Like others said here, all the channels would be identical in all RX's; so just plug in to whatever channels you need for any given RX.

This is a great solution for aircraft with a lot of channels in the wings, or float planes, where you can stuff a small battery, small RX and a micro servo in a pod in(or on top) of the float to steer the water rudders.

As also mentioned, make sure each RX gets sufficient power. Separate power may be necessary if you are driving a lot of servos.

Pick your number of pins needed and one plug connecting, and they lock.

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

Re: Double receivers

Thunderbolt RC also sells the same concept pre built.

I also use a dual receiver system (JR and SPEXTRUM) in two of my largest airplanes. I run 1 side from the other so if a failure occurs with one receiver at least I have some control.

Re: Double receivers

As mentioned earlier, each receiver unit will have an independent power and switch.
The idea is to plug the wing into the fuse, And fly and not do any electronic connection or power between the two receivers. Although taking signal at the same time, but they will be complete autonomous from each other.
Thanks for all the input, the more I get the more I can isolate any potential surprises that may jump out later.

Sam, follow the thread you might want to do the same. Why don't you post your new baby.

Re: Double receivers

Why not upgrade to an S.Bus rx? Only 1 cable to connect, run the decoder after that and split as needed.
