How would you like a plane that you can fly with any 2.4GHz radio you like? Any brand! That exactly what you can do with the new “Transmitter-Ready” (Tx-R) airplanes and all it takes to make it happen is a little black box called the AnyLink™.
Adding the AnyLink to your transmitter unlocks its true versatility. It retains the ability to fly the same planes it flew before — and it gains the ability to fly any Tx-R airplane you want. If you’re like most pilots, all it will require is plugging the AnyLink into the trainer or DSC port of your radio.
Once that’s done, your transmitter will be broadcasting a true, interference-free, 2.4GHz signal compatible with the SLT receivers in every Tx-R airplane. Link the receiver to AnyLink and you’re set.
Right now the list of Tx-R airplanes includes:
- Great Planes F-86 Sabre Jet EDF
- Flyzone Albatros and Fokker Dr.I Triplane
- Flyzone Playmate and Super Cub
- Flyzone Cessna 350 Corvalis and Cessna 182 Skylane
- Flyzone Sensei trainer, Switch, and Sky Fly Max
- Flyzone Classic Cub and FW-190 German Fighter
So how do you know if your transmitter is AnyLink-compatible? Once again, the answer is: “Very simply.” Clicking here will take you to the AnyLink Compatibility Chart at the www.tx-ready.com website and you’re in the know. It will not only tell you if your transmitter is compatible with AnyLink, but which (if any) optional adapter cable you’ll need.
- AnyLink works with virtually any transmitter, regardless of brand, band or modulation.
- AnyLink enables your transmitter to send out a true, 2.4GHz signal — and operate with all of the interference-free dependability of a frequency-hopping, spread-spectrum system.
- AnyLink offers all of the convenience, versatility and benefits listed above for far less than the cost of a new 2.4GHz radio system.
If you own a Tactic radio, there’s even less to do. Nothing, in fact! Tactic transmitters (and receivers) use the same SLT protocol used in AnyLink. And because they do, you can use your Tactic radio to fly any Tx-R airplane as is…without AnyLink.
So this cross brand radio technology looks like it’s going to shake things up in the RC marketplace. We’ll keep you posted as more information on the Tx-R Airplanes series and the AnyLink modules becomes available!
