Super small and light, designed for indoor aircraft, does not support failsafe.
We highly recommend picking up some micro servo pigtails if your servos or battery do not have the correct connectors as the micro connectors are nearly impossible to crimp yourself.
Compatible with all FrSky modules (telemetry (D series) and non-telemetry (V8 Series)
(The VD5M can talk with either system, but it does not send any telemetry information back to the transmitter.)
Number of Channels: 5
Operating Voltage Range: 3.0V-7.2V
Operating Current: 20mA
Operating Range: >300M
Compatible with micro connectors only (Molex PicoBlade 1.25 pitch - as used on Futaba, FlyDream, Walkera)
Replacing a brand T*c**c in a small micro. Ever so slightly bigger than the original Rx. While the added connectors are a nice gesture, the contacts are so small, it is quite difficult to work with. I tried soldering wire in addition to crimping (needle-nose pliers) but was disappointed. Ended up using some different terminals just to power up the receiver to bind. Cumbersome, but got it done. Need to range-check yet.
Another disappointment was that it appears this receiver has no way of setting fail-safe. So...I'm a little nervous for the first flight.
Also, just in getting this receiver installed, the antenna wire "glue" joint cracked. I re-secured the wire with a small dab of "shoe-goo" type adhesive. Rx works...yay. Now onto next step.
(Note from Aloft: There is no fail safe on this receiver as it is intended for indoor use. We also sell micro pigtails for these to make things easier.)
