Have Corona changed their DSSS V2 8ch RX???

Postby JBC » Wed Sep 01, 2010 2:37 pm

I was just looking at a couple 8channel Corona DSSS V2 receivers I have and thought they looked a little different. First I noticed the different colour stickers, the old ones are purple and the new ones are black with the logo in a slightly different place. Then I opened them up and noticed the newer one has done away with one circuit board where the old one had 2 and the chip layout also looks different. I'm not sure if this will affect performance, I certainly hope not as I know the older ones work quite well and have proven themselves and I have 6 more(I'm guessing they'll be the newer ones) currently on order from HK. Can anyone shed some light??? I've attached some pics....


Extra circuit board, different colour label, logo in different position

They've obviously made it simpler/cheaper to manufacture and hopefully they've also added some extra functionality (perhaps persistent failsafe now?)

Can't really tell just by looking though.

I will ask my contacts at Corona and see if I can get them to reply directly. I hadn't even noticed the change myself and I've sold enough of them...! The newer ones all seem to work fine as I have them in my models and I haven't had any issues yet - though just recently a customers' one did go puff on its second use in an RC Car... the replacement one is working fine (and Corona are standing by their warranty on replacing faulty units...)

I will state clearly here though, for anyone thinking of using a DIY Corona Module on an (old) Futaba Attack 2ER, Don't! Even with a signal amplifier the signal is still too weak, best not to go there..!
