Video Overview

Overview

The DX7 Microlite system includes the feather-light, 3.5-gram AR6100 Microlite Receiver and three DS285 Digital Sub-Micro Servos. In addition to being the lightest receiver in its class, the AR6100 can be operated with a wide range of input voltage (3.5V – 9V). And the digitally precise DS285 servos offer more than enough speed and torque for any small electric application.

Detailed Information

THE TRANSMITTER:
The DX7 DSM2 transmitter features airplane and heli software, 20-model memory and all the programming functions you would ever need for anything requiring 7 channels. And the large dot-matrix, LCD screen makes accessing and using the software simple and straightforward.
3-Position Flap Mixing:
The DX7 incorporates a three-position flap system that allows the flap and elevator positions to be preset in all three switch positions. An auto function automatically retracts the flaps when the throttle is raised above a preset point such as during an aborted landing or touch-and-go
.
Switch Assignment:
The DX7 offers switch assignment that lets you conveniently combine dual rates on one of many switches or program them to be activated separately.
Single Screen Dual Rate/Exponential:
Punch in dual rate and exponential values in the same screen for aileron elevator and rudder and see the result clearly and graphically depicted on the displayed curve.
5-Point Heli Throttle and Pitch Curves:
Four flight modes (normal, s tunt 1, stunt 2 and hold) are available, each with its own five point throttle and pitch curve. Graphical depiction of the curves makes adjustments clear and easy to understand.
Servo Monitor:
Keep real-time tabs on each channel’s control position, direction of movement and mixing relationship with this all-in-one servo monitor that can help you visualize mixes before flying.
CCPM Mixing:
The DX7 supports mechanical mix helis as well as 3 types of CCPM mixing, including 2 servo 90°, 3 servo 90° and the most common 3 servo 120°. Swashplate aileron, elevator and pitch values are independently adjustable, making precise setup easy.
Gyro Sensing:
The gyro function allows two gyro gain presets that can be automatically accessed via flight modes or with the
rudder dual rate switch.

What ESCs and servos can I use with Spektrum Receivers?

Spektrum receivers are compatible with most popular speed controls and servos on the market.

What is DSM?

DSM or Digital Spectrum Modulation is Spektrum's proprietary method of implementing 2.4GHz spread spectrum technology for the R/C industry. DSM divides the 2.4GHz band into 80 individual channels (frequencies) and incorporates direct sequence spread spectrum with an embedded GUID (Globally Unique Identifier) code. DSM has been painstakingly optimized by our engineers for RC surface and aircraft use, offering the most robust RF link in the industry.

What is DSM2?

DSM2 is the 2nd generation of Spektrum DSM technology and remains a premier 2.4GHz choice even today. Using the same superior wideband DSSS foundation that all Spektrum technology is based on, DSM2 consistently provides faster response and more precision than most non-DSM 2.4GHz protocols.

What is DSMX?

DSMX is a natural evolution of DSM2 technology that is the result of several years of development, optimized for pilots and combining Wideband DSSS and Frequency Agility. It builds on what has come before and takes DSM to the next level of robustness, reliability and efficiency without leaving current DSM2 users behind. DSMX represents the world's first wideband, frequency-agile 2.4GHz signal protocol and the most advanced spread spectrum RC technology to date.

What is Frequency Agility?

These systems usually transmit a narrow band signal and rapidly jump through a fixed set of frequencies, spending a few milliseconds on each frequency.

What is Wideband DSSS?

The foundation DSMX is built on is the same foundation as DSM2™ - the superior on-channel interference resistance and coding gain of wideband DSSS. Compared to the wideband signal of a DSM2 or DSMX™ system, the narrow-band signal of other 2.4 transmitters is more likely to suffer crucial data loss in the event of on-channel interference. Think of wideband 2.4 as a river and narrow-band 2.4 as a stream. It takes much more interference to stop a river than it does to stop a stream.

The big reason wideband is so robust is coding gain. Essentially what this means is that the unique coding in a DSM2 or DSMX wideband signal allows it to be heard well above the noise of surrounding 2.4GHz signals without requiring any more power. In fact, a Spektrum wideband signal can achieve as much as 3X the range of its narrow-band competition using the same amount of power.

Are DSMX and DSM2 equipment compatible with each other

For the most part, yes. DSM2 transmitters are forward compatible with DSMX receivers and DSMX transmitters are backward compatible with DSM2 receivers. And because DSM2 and DSMX share the same wideband DSSS foundation, all Spektrum users will enjoy superior range, speed and precision whether they're using DSM2 equipment, DSMX equipment or a combination of both. The only exception is the DXe which is DSMX-only and not compatible with DSM2 receivers.

Are DSM2 transmitters eligible for a DSMX add-on?

Yes, but DSM2 users who rarely, if ever, fly in big events or other "noisy" 2.4GHz environments may find the DSM2 equipment they have now is all they will ever need. The difference DSMX makes is only apparent when hundreds of 2.4GHz systems are in use at once. To see if your transmitter is eligible for the DSMX add-on, please visit horizonhobby.com, click on the “radios” tab, and select “DSMX addons” for more details.

What is ModelMatch?

A safety feature that prevents a pilot from flying a model when the model selected in the radio is not correct.

What is Servo Sync?

A resequencing of the data a Spektrum transmitter transmits based on the type of mixing you select. This feature helps to sync control services that are connected (such as a swash plate on a helicopter) and is used in radios that have many channels.

What is X-Plus?

The Spektrum™ X-Plus™ 8 module lets you add 8 fully proportional channels to specially equipped Spektrum transmitters and receivers with 10 or more proportional channels. Just plug it into the X-Plus port of a compatible receiver. It is ideal for scale modelers who like to push realism to the extreme with working accessories and lights in addition to the regular control functions. The DX10t and DX18 offer X-Plus.

How much range can I expect out of my radio system?

You should have no problem maintaining control as long as you maintain direct line-of-sight with your model. If you try to fly behind a group of trees or otherwise obstruct your direct line-of-sight, you could be susceptible to losing your control link.

Where can I find Spektrum Apps?

You can download Spektrum Apps from the Google Play Store at https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=Horizon+Hobby,+Inc. or from the iTunes store at https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/horizon-hobby-inc/id415542050

Can I change/shorten/lengthen the antenna on my Spektrum Receiver?

The length of the antenna is on a Spektrum receiver is set and tuned to optimize the range and performance of the receiver. We do not recommend altering the length of the antenna on any Spektrum Receiver.
