Mike, that practice ensures you retain control over the system at all times, regardless of signal type.

Even if your Rx has failsafe programming, (such as to set low throttle and neutral flight surfaces with loss of signal) not a good idea to power down what is setting output on your receiver.

Re: Yesterday at the field

I know that my 72 MHz systems would move the servos if the transmitter was turned off first but neither my 2.4 systems have that problem that I have ever noticed.

Re: Yesterday at the field

Did Futaba eventually incorporate Model Match?

This is a great feature which I believe Spektrum patented.

My Graupner systems have had Model Match for years. Not sure how they got around Speks patent.

Re: Yesterday at the field

FRSky doesn't call it model match but the later RXs can be bound with an RX number and will respond only to that number so it works the same as model match as long as you set it up properly.
An older RX doesn't care about the model number and responds to any model on the radio to which it's bound.

Re: Yesterday at the field

The gist I got was you could do a "Matching System" as long as it did not work quite like Speks. Spek was hard coded to be non-optional. The others like Graupner came out a few years back with optional system. Speks is now optional that you can stick with normal or override and have two or more model memories for the same Rx.

I don't know for sure what the specific thing is that makes them different enough. Something deeper I suppose.

All the RF chipsets in use in our 2.4 RC systems have peer to peer modes with MAC address, or GUIDs or pipeline IDs depending or the chipset. Spectrum didn’t invent this! Spektrum just made a protocol layered on top of these matching mechanisms that all the RF chipset support or better put are dependant on. So as long as you use the RF chipset pairing/matching and don’t “procedurally” duplicate the spektrum binding/matching process, there is no infringement, and anybody making a 2.4 system these days is effectively “model matching”.
This hobby is a Slickness!
