For what it's worth...I just received a couple of the 8 and 6 channel
Seeker receivers from Polks...priced right and bench tests are very
good..using either Hitec, JR or Futaba. My only complaint would be
the very thin wire used for the antenna... I plan to test fly them
this weekend... both are dual conversion and once locked on the
particular transmitter they were set on..they stay there until
re-programmed. This type of receiver and the synthesized transmit
modules (Hitec had one, Futaba just started shipping theirs and JR
just announced theirs, too)(and I have one of the Polks Tracker 3
systems on back order as well. It holds 100 plane setups and has a
built in scanner...and comes with receiver, battery pack and one
servo..odd, just one servo...oh, well...and the transmitter will work
any FM PPM receiver....the whole thing is $250...and as soon as I test
fly these receivers in my old trainer test plane I will post on this
link...and when I get the transmitter set next month I will post my
findings on it. If anyone else if flying these, I think we all would
like to hear your findings.
Regards to all...
