    What brand of transmitter do you have? If you don`t have a transmitter yet, a Spektrum DX6 with an AR610 receiver would be a good choice.

    DSMX is more expensive, but it is much better than DSM2. And yes, everything over there has to be DSMX since DSM2 has been banned.

    DSM2 is only 'banned' in Europe on new transmitters for sale. You can still legally use DSM2 if you have older DSM2 equipment.

    As for receivers. The Lemon Rx range in my favourite, i've used them on everything from small foamies to 700+ helis: DSMX Compatible

    For the model in question I'd probably go for this one if you just want a basic 6 channel Rx: Lemon Rx DSMX Compatible 6-Channel Receiver with Diversity Antenna

    The Stabiliser receivers are good too, like turning down the wind: Lemon Rx DSMP/X 7-Channel (End Pin) Stabilizer PLUS with Diversity Antenna (Fully DSMX and DSM2 compatible)

    Thanks for the correction Steve. I thought they banned them completely over there.

    Do the Lemon stabilizer RX's work with helicopters? What I read only say airplanes.

    I wouldn`t try them on a helicopter It seems to me, that it would fight the FBL controller, and defeat the purpose of both.

    Gerna, I was wondering if it was like the Spectrum receivers that have self level in them. A combo receiver/FBL.

    As Geena said, the lemon receivers are meant for fixed wing only, not for helis. They dont have 'self levelling' type stabilisation anyway, all they have is a rate mode gyro that helps correct if the plane gets hit by a gust etc.

    The standard (non-stability) Lemon receivers could be used on a heli of course. I use the Lemon satellite receivers on a few of my big helis, i prefer them to the genuine Spektrum units.
