Amazing what can be done with photo software these days!!
 Yes - damned clever the way the artist has managed to Photoshop out the long serial number you were holding under your chin in the original photo..............

Hi all,
As I was the person who originally asked about Spektrum DX5e and different receivers I can now confirm previous posts that mention you can bind more than one receiver to a DX5e tx. I have used AR500's and bound three to the tx. Yes, they all respond if switched on simultaneously but I only operate one boat at a time!
Now it wasn't complicated,  just unknown to me. I even emailed Horizon Hobbies and they told me I had to re-bind each time. It was as a result of posts on here that I went ahead and bought more receivers- so thanks to all who answered.
I can now say that I think 2.4GHz is brilliant, not complicated in it's uncomputerised forms amd solves quite few  little problems. Aerials are easier to cope with, no more crystals, and less batteries to worry about in the tx, smaller aerial on the tx.
I have yet to find a downside apart from cost of equipment which, when all is said and done, is not that great unlessyou are expecting to get such brilliant technology for nothing. It's still cheaper in real terms than my first 27 meg set was thirty years ago.
Best wishes all,

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
