Diversity vs Satellite

I am about to buy a new receiver for my DX8 Gen2. Should I get one of the Diversity receivers or stick with a regular receiver with a Satellite?
Do they achieve the same thing?
Is the newer Diversity better of just newer?

Thanx in advance Rich

Not sure what you mean. It is the remote receivers that provide diversity.

I believe he is referring to the smaller receivers that do not use remotes. they are advertised as full range. might be more appropriate to ask over at RCG in the Radio forum as it is Spektrum supported.

If you are talking about the AR620, I have been using 2 of them with good results on a foamie and a 60 inch EF Extra. Some bad mouth it, but every time I land, I look at the fades and holds. Typically I see 2-5 fades and have never had a hold. I was concerned about the carbon fiber blocking the signal, but I mounted it so that the chamfered back face that contains the PCB antennas have a clear path.

The diversity remotes are for serial connections for quads. Your looking for the 410 or 610 sport or a standard receiver with remote receivers.
