Rx61 DSM2/DSMX 16V 9 Channel Receiver with Bi-Directional ESC
Rx61 is a 9 channel (1 ESC, 8 'P') DSM2/DSMX compatible micro receiver designed for use in surface vehicle: cars, boats and train locomotives. The receiver is designed to operate from 3-13v DC. This allows it to be used with many battery combinations. 1S, 2S and 3S lipos are common choices (3S = 3 cells in series).
The motor output (H1) can supply up to 1.3A when the motor is stalled at 100% throttle.
The receiver is available as a bare board with 2.54mm pad space for ease of soldering and with lead-out wires for battery and motor. Please
contact us if you need wiring for other receiver outputs - e.g. servo/switch channels.

All versions of the Rx61 are the same hardware, the only difference is the program settings. The Rx61 settings can be changed in the usual fashion via waggling the sticks of a standard Tx or the
PROG3 / PROG4 programmer may be used. A guide to setup using a standard Tx is available here.
The 'Direction' feature in the table above indicates whether the receiver ESC uses the throttle (chan 1) as a centre-off or full-range control. Centre-off is the default setting for most variants. When configured for full-range (by programming), a seperate channel is used to set the ESC direction - this is channel 3 for the Tx2x railway controllers.

The receiver has a low-voltage cutoff facility which stops the motor when the battery has reached its discharge voltage. The default setting is for LiPo batteries. If you are using NiMH, the LVC should be disabled - see
Low Voltage Cutoff tab.
