lol. well the AR7000 is for big electric and IC planes so I dunno if you needed it but the different modules can be bound to transmitters supporting the same DSM / DSM2 protocol so it's not a big deal. The AR6100 receiver seems like it would be the better choice to put in a brat or a scout though just because it's smaller... plus I can use it in my planes. Oh wait did that slip out?
Well there were a few things that sort of made the decision for me. The first being they don't offer any of the airmods with that receiver.
You basically get the AR7000 for $10.00 though. It's got to have the best reception which will be important with the open loop nature of the keypad functions.
Actually the combination you picked seems to be the lowest price so it is probably what I'll buy... and maybe an AR6100... oh wait... um... did you consider that you may be able to cut/mill a pocket in the top plastic there to let the module snap in place just like on a r/c radio? You could quite literally just scre the antenna onto it's output connector without needing to mount the thing internally and provide a mount for the antenna.
Yes I plan to try to make the top panel so the transmitter will snap in if possible. I don't think the airmods actually includes the antenna. I will know soon enough. I have some 2.4ghz antennas left over from the BlueSmirf projects.
