Thread: Teeny Tiny Receiver?

  1. #1
    Hi all,

    Basically, just looking for a recommendation. After a 2.4ghz Transmitter that comes with a teeeeeny tiny receiver for a really compact ant build (I'm currently using Planet r6m which classes itself as a micro receiver but I still find it to be too big lol).

    I don't need anything too fancy, just something which can do forward/backwards, left/right, and maybe opporate a servo/extra weapon motor.

    Anything anyone can recommend would be amazing! Thanks

    There's this one: https://hobbyking.com/en_us/orangerx...___store=en_us

    As I understand, it's basically a normal OrangeRx 6 channel receiver without the connectors for normal servo leads. You have to solder the connections on yourself.

    Lemon Rx used to make one too I think, but that was DSM2 and they've now discontinued it (possibly they'll bring out a DSMX version at some point?).

    Thanks man! Not gonna lie I've always been a 'plug in, try different wiring combinations and hope for the best' kind of guy so that one does look a little daunting haha! Are there any good tutorials on how to wire up a receiver like that?

    Also, do you know if it's open to any 2.4ghz controller or only specific ones? (My area of roboteering is more fabrication than electrical aha....)

    I use these ones with a spektrum dxi

    Oh nice, guessing they're pretty 'open source' as it was then? Haha.

    Cheers guys, I'll do some more digging into this receiver.

    The DSM2/X protocols are for Spektrum radios - so if you have a Spektrum transmitter you can use this, or a Devo that's been flashed to be compatible. If you have any other transmitter it won't work, as far as I know.

    BTW, if you want something that's quite tiny but still plugs in as normal, LemonRx might be a good bet. They have all the normal pins to plug in servo cables but without a plastic shell, so they're less bulky/heavy. Probably twice the weight of the OrangeRx one, especially when you factor in that you won't need the connectors on the servo leads, but it may be a suitable halfway house that saves a bit of mass and volume but keeps everything plug and play.

    Thanks for the reccomendation! After a spot of looking I managed to find the below:

    I've ordered both to see how I get on with them and how many channels I'll actually need. Stay tuned! (This will most likely be updated in my build diary haha).
