Default which Spektrum receiver for park flyers??

Which Spektrum DSM2 receiver would you guys recommend? My planes are Super Cub, E starter size. I have several AR6000s that I have been using with my DX6. I just got a DX6i.

Nicest thing about the DX6i .... The cheapest one. If AR6000's are working for you... stick to them. You have the option.

Yeah. my AR6000s are fine but I can see the day coming when they won't make them anymore and I will have to use DSM2s for any new planes. That was part of the reason that I got the 6i.

6100/6100E's are cheap enough

I have mostly those, with a sprinkling of 6200's in some of the larger planes, and a AR7000 in the MiniUltraStick to handle quad flaps.

"Spektrumized" Futaba 9C, so 6000's aren't an option for me.

AR6100es for me. I hated the top pins on the AR6000s' the main reason I wanted to switch to DSM2.

I jsut flew an AR6100 and an AR6100E in my Ninja slopers... took each up and as high as I ever go with this type of plane.. 600 feet or more.., and pushed the "bind" button on the transmitter, a DX-7...
As advertised and expected, the receiver's "failed safe" to neutral aileron and elevator, and after a couple of seconds reestablished the link to the transmitter after I'd released the button.
