Has the LMA had a chance to look at these Rx's and decifer their suitability for Over 20kg models?
The Multiplex description is:
Our premium range of M-LINK receivers: 9-channel MULTIPLEX 2.4 GHz units for the demanding modeller. These receivers feature two complete receiving circuits
operating in parallel (receiver diversity). In conjunction with a special signal amplification circuit this ensures very high sensitivity, excellent reception quality and maximum effective system range. All three receivers feature replaceable aerials; fitting aerials of different length enables the user to deploy the aerials efficiently in any model. The aerial connectors are fitted with high-quality gold-plated contacts.
The receivers also feature a MULTIPLEX M6 high-current connector which provides a reliable connection for the receiver power supply; an external high-power supply unit is not required. Another interesting feature is individual protection for each servo socket against overload and short-circuit; this ensures that the power supply to the rest of the system is not adversely affected if a fault occurs in one component, such as a defective servo. Yet another special feature is the cable securing clip. This can be fitted to the case when required, and protects all cables from working loose accidentally. Highly recommended for models where vibration is a serious problem!

They talk about two complete receiving circuits operating in parrallel...but only one power input. Do they mean that there are 6 pins on a Multiplex M6 plug and you can have 3 power inputs? I don't think so.
I first thought that ONE of these Rx's might satisfy the Over 20kg models...but I am having second thoughts now.
Anyone know anything more about these?
