Looking at a Lemon 10 channel with sat. I was looking at an ar8000 spektrum but the review were bad.
Price of the Lemon is about a 1/3 of the price of the ar8000.
Have any of you used the Lemon 10 channel?

No lemon but two 8000s. Not sure what anyone would complain about.

I've used a pile of AR8000's in review models, no issues for years.

As for Lemon stuff, I wouldn't use it in anything that cost more than the receiver.

Maybe the review was from when they first released the ar8000. Thanks for the info. I will keep looking for a rx.

HELP!!!!!!

Okay, got new ar8000 installed. Bind works, ailerons work opposite of each other. Rudder works. Elevators both work but work like ailerons opposite of each other.

DX7s is not seeing the receiver as it is setup. Not showing Aux1, aux2 or aux3 on monitor screen. I am not able to mix or set master/slave, because aux1 through aux3 not visible as an option.

Yesterday when doing setup of dx7s to ar8000 it did show the aux1 - aux3 on the setup screen and let me mix, but the elevators were not working correctly, so I reset the model and went to start over. Now no AUX1-AUX3 options showing.
Today I set it up with what I have with no mixing.
Monitor on DX7s shows
Thr
RAL
Rel
RUD
GER
LAL
LEL
Wing type set to dual ailerons and dual elevators
Plugged battery in and bind.
Ailerons work opposite of each other
Elevators work opposite of each other so no lift just roll
Rudder works as it should

Am I suppose to use a Y cable for the Elevators to get them to work the same?

Receiver is plugged in as follows:
Bind plugged in bind/data
Thr plugged in ESC
Right Aileron plugged into AIL
Right Elevator plugged in to ELE
Rudder plugged into RUD
Nothing plugged into GER
Left Aileron plugged into AUX1
Left Elevator plugged into AUx2
Nothing plugged into AUX3

Did a firmware update to DX7s yesterday thinking this might resolve some issues, now at 1.03

Am I missing something here? This is getting frustrating to say the very least. Your assistance is appreciated.

Ken

Firmware only fixes bugs, you don't have a bug.

Like I told you on RCU, reverse the elevator servo thats moving the wrong way. If the result is they are both going the wrong way, reverse both.
