Spektrum was the first company to use 2.4 Mhz and have been out for a while.

Stay tuned.
To give you an idea of 2.4 popularity, out of a recent event with 60 fliers, only (4) 72 mhz transmitters were impounded....hmmmmm

Re: Spektrum Issues

I found the solution to my trouble. If you read the AR7000 user guide, one of the FAQ for long time to bind is clearly posted

If the transmitter is too close to the receiver (less that 4 ft.) or if the transmitter is located near metal objects (metal TX case, the bed of a truck, the top of a metal work bench, etc.) connection will take longer and in some cases connection will not occur as the system is receiving reflected 2.4GHz energy from itself and is interpreting this as unfriendly noise. Moving the system away from metal objects or moving

And my transmitter was very close to the airplane when the trouble occured.

If all else fails, read the users guide!
Lead, follow, or get out of the way!
