I also use Micron, excellent service and they can add wires including P pads which helps me.
I worry sometimes about long time availability of Deltang products. As far as I know DavidT is a one man business and if something should happen to him!!!

My future proofing involves buying more Rx than I need but it would be good to know there were other Rx that would work with Deltangs Tx

I wonder how long a Rx would last. I have a loco that has not been used for 3 years and it worked first time when I switched it on. At my age I am not looking for 50 years of use but 10 to 15 would be good.

A number of years ago ( MANY) there was a large US CLUB layout using IR and they had mirrors around the layout that they bounced the IR signal off to a hidden section.......it was a start.......now we have Starship Enterprise controls............:old dude:

Dave.
I know of no combined Rx/ESC products that can work with any Deltang TX2 based DSM2 equipment.
It is a lot easier with regular servo control Rx's. Pretty well any DSM2 Rx can be used. I prefer Lemon brand, but Orange brand also works well.
No automatic binding or directional lights though. No servo programmability either, but there are plug in low cost servo reversing modules made by Turnigy.

I think I've been at this for close to 4 years now and have yet to have a failure with anything I've gotten Deltang related and thanks to Tony W!!!  And that's with even going "inside" and adjusting the settings of the Rx.  Funny thing is once you make adjustments, you realize it's easy to do if you know what to look for.

I keep reminding myself of the miseries of running fancy electronic equipped engines on a 3-rail track with upwards of 21VAC on the rails.  With all the arcing and sparking (and the high speed at which they are usually run) it's no wonder people have trouble.

Dead Rail has it's advantages for sure :2t:  I think it would take off if a manufacturer offered a quality engine with BPRC already equipped.  3-rail folks don't get that BPRC can be run on the same track as their command and control engines without interference.

Gents,
could you please refrain from posting DT related stuff here? We have threads dealing with Deltang stuff -THIS THREAD is about IR-RC!
