Introducing the new Spektrum Synapse Flight Stabilization Module. It’s unlike any stabilization module we’ve made before because everything has changed. That’s not hyperbole. This isn’t the old AS3X. It’s something revolutionary.

The revolutionary Spektrum™ Synapse™ Flight Stabilization Module is vastly improved over its predecessor, the AS3000. Equipped with the all-new AS3X+ stabilization algorithm, the Synapse has been rigorously tested by experts throughout the hobby and has been put to the ultimate test. Spektrum has taken years of customer feedback on the AS3000 and purpose-built the Synapse with turbine aircraft and giant scale in mind. Its lightweight design and innovative features make it the ideal choice for pilots needing the best in-flight stabilization in today’s world of complex models. Discover the difference today.

Check out the AR20410T with Synapse here.

The Spektrum Sky Remote ID Module (SPMA9500) is shipping to consumers and retailers in the United States.

Although at this time we don’t have inventory to cover all current backorders, we are working diligently to get more inventory to meet the demands of the unit. Keep in mind that the FAA moved out the Remote ID enforcement six months to March 16th, 2024. We advise customers wishing to fly outside a FRIA to secure their place in line for this high demand item by placing a backorder online or with their local retailer.

As part of the Sky Remote ID Module release, have updates for NX and iX transmitters as well as receiver updates that are required to allow Sky telemetry messages to display on the RC Transmitter. Please note that these updates are not required to use the most basic features of Sky. Sky only requires power and to be registered with the FAA to be compliant with remote ID regulations. Plugging Sky into the Xbus port or any servo port is the easiest solution to supply power. Be sure to purchase a SPMA3065 USB Updater cable to keep your Sky Remote ID Module and Spektrum receivers up to date. For further information regarding Remote ID, head over to the FAA website by clicking here.

Important Update for Powersafe receivers

This update improves AS3000 functionality and user friendliness. Please see the change log for full details on this and past updates.


Download the Powersafe Change Log file here.

To install this update, you will need our SPMA3065 USB Programming Cable and the Spektrum PC Programmer App found here.


When flying basic foam, wood, or fiberglass, electric, gas, or glow powered models at typical distances, the signal-to-noise ratio (radio link) is very favorable providing a robust control link even in the noisiest of RF environments. With more complex aircraft like turbine jets, giant scale aircraft etc. that are equipped with systems (like turbine engines with metal tail pipes, large fuel tanks, large gas engines, retracts or anything else that is made of metal or carbon) or are flown at great distances, proper radio equipment selection, installation and testing can be critical to provided and verify adequate radio link performance. This is especially true for transmitters that are EU compliant (EU-328) with limited EIRP power output (<100mw).


Spektrum systems offer features and functions that allow you to optimize and test your Radio Link performance prior to flight, on the ground and then in the air providing you with exact information as to how each component of your system is performing in actual use.

Click here to read more about John Adam's recommended tips that will allow you optimize your installation and to safely evaluate the RF link performance even before flying.
