Patented Dual-Path Signal Redundancy
Every 2.4GHz receiver, DSM-based or not, has to deal with two technical
problems common to all 2.4GHz signals - reflected signal fading and polarization
blind spots at long range from the transmitter. Both of these problems, if
not properly addressed, could mean the end of a model. Only patented Spektrum
MultiLink™ receiver technology provides you with the best way to deal with both.
Eliminates Reflected Signal Fading
Reflected signal fading occurs when a 2.4GHz signal is cancelled out at the
receiver by its reflection bouncing off a conductive surface. If the signal
reflection arrives at the receiver exactly 180 degrees out of phase from the
original signal the result is the same as a noise cancelling headset - silence.
That's a real problem if you're only using one receiver.
Only Spektrum MultiLink receivers give you the protection of a main receiver connected
to one or more satellite receivers. By mounting the smaller satellite receivers away from
the main receiver in different orientations, the odds of all of them experiencing signal
reflection at the same time are reduced to a statistical impossibility. No single receiver
can come close to providing that kind of protection.
Eliminates Receiver Blind Spots
The farther a 2.4GHz receiver operates from its transmitter the greater the
chances of signal loss when its antenna is pointed directly at the transmitter. This
is referred to as a polarization blind spot. By using multiple receivers with different
antenna orientations, the dual path diversity of MultiLink ensures that one or
more will always be able to clearly "see" the signal.
About Single Spektrum Receivers
Spektrum single receivers are designed exclusively for use in smaller RC
aircraft such as parkflyers and ultra micro aircraft that use materials which create
little, if any, signal reflection. Also, these models are almost always flown close
enough to their transmitters that the size and effect of antenna blind spots are minimal.
