Please Note - Flydream is virtually finished in Australia - just some receivers left now!

Simple low-cost conversion of your existing radio to 2.4 GHz
Have you avoided converting to 2.4 GHz because of the cost? Would you like to be free from interference and from worries about someone shooting you down? The FlyDream conversion option gives you the latest technology and peace of mind at minimal cost. This is V.3 equipment with the bugs worked out - the biggest problem - the refresh rate - has been solved. You will not crash your plane waiting for this gear to refresh!

Modules are available off-the-shelf that plug straight in to your JR or Futaba module-controlled Tx for the low cost of $40. There is even a Do-It-Yourself module that can be fitted to other brands or to non-module transmitters. FlyDream has already been used to convert Multiplex (module and non-module), Graupner MC24, Graupner MX22, Eurgle, JR-2610 and JR-3810. It seems that any radio will accept this gear!

JR module - $40 (see photo right of module being fitted)
Futaba module - $40
DIY module for any brand Tx - $35

Receivers - there are three different receivers - they are all small, light and inexpensive. It will not cost you a fortune to convert. The aerial wire is short (100mm long) and the last 30mm is the active part of the aerial.
