I am converting a DJI S1000 to fly with a Pixhawk 1 flight controller and am in need of a radio receiver. My knowledge of receivers dates back to the 72 MHz days, so please forgive my ignorance here.
The radio is a Futaba 14SG so I'm probably stuck with a Futaba receiver, which isn't a bad thing. I am just not sure which one I need in order to control the S1000.
I am looking at the R6208SB specifically. Would this work with the Pixhawk? The docuemntation also suggets the R6303SB and R7008SB receivers.
Channel wise, I suppose I need the 4 control channels plus retracts, flight mode, and failsafe/RTL. Is my logic correct? I plan on using the SBUS capability if possible.
Price, weight, and size are not a concern. I would rather go overkill in case I want to use the extra channel(s) down the line.
