AR7600 Receiver

Looks like pilots have another option for a RX. I usually use the 921 RX or 9300 RX for sailplanes. They fit fine. I have seen a number of AR7000 installs with the antennas folded along the RX. Not good for getting a good signal. The antennas just stick out the wrong way for a small sailplane fuselage.

The new AR7600 looks like it might be good for pilots who want a less expensive RX with the antenna oriented better for installation in a sailplane.

Remote Relays for Base B Buzzers

I have a solution that I like to replace the base A to base B cable. It's a Spektrum transmitter, receiver and Dimension Engineering PicoSwitch. The Picoswitch plugs into a servo output providing a nice remotely operated relay. See
