Yeah, that should be Ok.

I'm not able to put any kits together for the next week or two, but will hopefully be able to start putting new kits together after that.

Just to keep this thread up to date, The new NanoTwo V2 kit has been released. It is more robust and slightly thinner than the V1s. It also now uses a proper bind plug, and has all wires coming out at one end to make it easier to fit in a small chassis. The datasheet has been updated to include the changes.

The initial batch of 11 have all now been sold. It's unlikely more will be made until late May due to exams.

The kits are only compatible with DSM2, and that TX seems to use the FrSky protocol, so no it wouldn't be compatible. Just as a warning, that controller seems to be sold without an RF module, so you'd need to buy that separately for it to work at all.

Unfortunately, DSM2 is quickly becoming an outdated protocol so it's difficult to pick up new TXs that are still compatible. The Devo 7 (http://robotwars101.org/forum/viewtopic ... evo#p56251) and Blade TXs seem to be some of the few remaining options.

I have looked at updating to DSMX, but haven't yet found a suitable RX.

Ah intresting, kinda all new to me, I bought a spectrum controler years ago second hand so never looked into diffrence
So am I right in thinking this controler that mentions Dsm2 is right?

Yup, that's the one I use, but be aware that shipping for those is around £40.

I've just had a email from Lemon-rx that they will be phasing out DSM2 (I was asking about a 'no-pin' DSMX version of their 5 pack):
Hello Andy,

Thank you for your comment.

We will eventually fade out DSM2 and replaced with DSMX receiver (capable of DSM2 reception).

I will let the team knows about it. Thanks!

Best Regards,

Hello Alex,

Thank you for your enquiry.

Yes we are actually working on migrating all product to DSMX. For your information, we will have Molex 1.25mm spacing connector DSMX stabilizer plus receiver in about 1 month. Thanks!

Best Regards,

Lemon Rx Officer
I've been bothering them aswell for a No-pins DSMX RX
