Full-range DSMX® receiverAntenna is enhanced for greater signal clarity4-channel—throttle, elevator, aileron and rudder channels for park flyers, trainers and many sport planesFlight log and telemetry compatible2048 resolution1-Year Minimal Service warranty


The full-range Spektrum™ AR400 receiver is quickly one of the best receiver values in RC. It integrates the speed and precision of DSMX® control with the signal security of an active enhanced antenna. This antenna allows the AR400 receiver to "see around" reflective materials on a design and prevent antenna polarization blind spots. It likewise enables the AR400 receiver to pick out its transmitter's signal with remarkable clarity in the noisiest 2.4GHz environments. All of this is matched by SmartSafe™ failsafe defense and the security of Spektrum QuickConnect™ innovation that provides lightning-fast reconnection in case of a low-voltage brownout.

NOTE: The AR400 receiver is not suitable with the initial DX6 DSM park flyer radios, not to be confused with the newer DX6 DSMX full range radios.
