Only transmitter I have come across that has given me issues is the Futaba Attack 2ER (AM transmitter), a BIG thanks must go to Bruce for designing a little signal amplifier to make this work... it was a strange one, as the signal seemed quite strong until the DIY kit was installed - then the signal went all wonky!
(By the way, Jaycar did replace my Oscilloscope probe, with a better one too - which did fix some of the wonky signals!)

I am currently looking into a way to convert a Spectrum DX6i transmitter over to Corona using a Dimension engineering "anyvolt micro" step mode voltage regulator. Could be interesting since the DX6i only runs off 4 AA cells, and the DIY kit requires between 6-13V input...

I have installed this module in an older Futaba 6Xsuper that was originally 35Mhz. I am in the US, and cannot use 35Mhz anyway. I have had great luck with this module, and have not experienced any hits, fades, or brown outs due to the receiver, module, or any signal issues. I did loose a beautiful 8' Telemaster due to a faulty NiMh receiver battery. I like this system very much because of the better than Spektrum DSSS system, and because of the cost of the receivers. I purchased 8 receivers for $102 USD on an Ebay deal.
I like the method of transmittion in the FHSS system better, but until they become more cost effective, I will stick with my Corona systems.

Mine came with a bad module and HK lost my return. I have since ordered another since I can not see having a perfectly good (I hope) receiver laying around .
