Compatible Receivers ??

Hello to all, I have inherited a Futaba T7CAP transmitter system along with a Spitfire plane, but no receiver? Is there a compatible modern receiver I can use. Thanks allot Mickey P

    What frequency is your 7 running on?

    There are receivers around still that you can use, but you will not get the rock solid link and interference resistance you get with a modern 2.4GHz system.

    Thank you WTWUK, its transmitting frequency is 50 or 72 MHz. If I try to complete the Spitfire project it looks like it would be better to buy a modern transmitter and receiver then. Do you have any recommendations, I would need at least 6 channels. All the Best Mickey P

    You would be better off with a modern system for sure.

    You could do worse that getting an FrSky Taranis X9D Plus with say the X8R receiver.

    The Taranis is a game changing bit of rc kit. It gives one of, if not the most robust rf links and whilst programming of it can be a steep learning curve, it is a system that will provide every concieveable setups and will never be obsolete.

    Had the Taranis been available when I started RC flying in earnest, I would have saved a small fortune in trying various radios. Have a google and see what info there is about it. Quite a marvel of a thing.
