AR6210 Receiver Installation in Belt-CPX

by babiator » Sat Sep 10, 2011 3:05 am

I want to replace the Esky RTF receiver with a Spektrum AR6210 Receiver so I can use it with my Spektrum DX6i Transmitter. Has anyone successfully gone through this upgrade? If so, can you post procedure and pictures of placement? In particular, I'm wondering about the secondary (remote) receiver. I assume the primary goes where the Esky receiver was. Where's the smaller one go? Thanks in advance.
May you be blessed with gentle winds and soft landings.

hi, i dont know if they are exactly the same, but i have the ar6200 rx on my king 2, and i put the primary in the normal position, and have stuck the secondary one on the side frame on the right, just behind the canopy. this allows areals of the secondary to point in a different orientation to the primary, ie they go up/down while the primary rx areals goes side to side. i think the idea is you get the best reception redundancy (ie if you lose reception in one part of the system you have less chance of losing it in the other)

E-Sky Receiver Channel to Spektrum AR6210 Receiver Mapping

by babiator » Wed Jun 06, 2012 12:55 am

Hello folks. I'm replacing the RTF receiver in the E-Sky Belt-CPX with a Spektrum AR6210 to be used with my DX6i Transmitter. The CPX receiver had channel numbers (1-6 +B), whereas the AR6210 has channel labels/tags (THRO, AILE, ELEV, etc.). In cross-referencing the Belt-CPX manual, some are obvious (e.g., CH2-ELEV to ELEV, CH6-AIL to AILE, CH3-Brushless Speed Controller to THRO, B to BIND/DATA), but others I'm having trouble reconciling their respective mapping. For example on the E-Sky side: CH1-PIT, CH4-Gyro, CH5-Head Lock Gyro. And on the Spektrum AR6210 side: RUDD, GEAR, AUX-1. (Presumably, E-Sky CH1, 4, & 5 would map to RUDD, GEAR, AUX-1 but not sure of the precise mapping.)

I'm including a picture of the main receiver on the E-Sky Belt-CPX page that enumerates the channels for the RTF receiver. Any guidance you can give me would be greatly appreciated:

Also, this was my first heli. I wrecked it first flight, and realized I'm in way over my head. I have since been working with my two simulators, as well as a fixed pitch Blade 120SR, and collective pitch Blade mCPX mini. I have since repaired the damage to the Belt-CPX (head assembly, feather shaft, flybar) but I've got very little experience working on and fixing it, so any helpful tips in doing this Spektrum receiver modification would be greatly appreciated! Also, although I repaired the damage from my first crash, I haven't tuned the pitch, etc., so again, helpful advice falls on grateful ears. Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.
May you be blessed with gentle winds and soft landings.

St. Bosse, yes I had seen your post before and actually printed that off this winter. (Finally getting around to being itchy to fly the 450 again.)

CyprusDave, thank you for the assist!
