AR630 6 Channel AS3X/SAFE Receiver
Before Purchasing the SPMAR630
Be aware that the SPMAR630 Receiver is an extremely complex component and that owners will need to read, and fully understand, the manual in order to be capable of setting it up for use.
The SPMAR630 Manual is available under the tab "Manuals" on this page.
If an owner's Spektrum Transmitter is NOT capable of FORWARD PROGRAMMING then a SPMAR630 cannot be properly configured for use in their aircraft.
Your Spektrum Transmitter must be capable of FORWARD PROGRAMMING in order to configure the SPMAR630 for SAFE, Flight Modes and AS3X stabilization, etc..
Most Gen 2 & Gen 3 Spektrum Transmitters have FORWARD PROGRAMMING installed that can be accessed ONLY when bound to a FORWARD PROGRAMMING device such as the SPMAR630.
Some owner's Spektrum Transmitters may require updating using a SPMA3065 USB Programming Cable, sold separately, in order to install and use FORWARD PROGRAMMING with a SPMAR630.
The link below is a video tutorial on setting up a FORWARD PROGRAMMING device similar to the SPMAR630. The video in the link can be used as a supplement to the information in the SPMAR630 manual.
The Spektrum AR630 AS3X Telemetry Receiver is a DSM2 and DSMX capable receiver. Its compact footprint is designed to fit in a wide range of aircraft models including park flyers and larger sport models. The AR630 is a full range 6-channel receiver with built in AS3X and SAFE stabilization, which counters the effects of wind, turbulence and torque using 3-axis MEMS gyro and exclusive flight control software tuned by expert RC pilots. There is no delay in control response or limits on control throws. You'll simply feel like you're flying an expertly tuned model that does exactly what you want.
- Antenna-less designed for easy installation, and increase performance
- Built in AS3X Stabilization System with SAFE flight envelope protection
- AS3X and SAFE set up through forward programming directly from your Spektrum transmitter
- Ready to use with Spektrum Smart ESC for one-wire telemetry data without the need of modules, links and wires
- Streamlined, end-pin design in a lightweight hard-case
- Bind button allows for easy binding and eliminates the need for bind plug
- DSMX protocol receiver with DSM2 backwards compatibility
- Fly-by range telemetry support
- Standard servo connectors
The AR630 features fly-by range telemetry and a bind button that makes it easy to bind with no plugs necessary and offers both SmartSafe technology and Hold Last as well as preset failsafe types set through forward programming. The AR630 also features Smart Telemetry support.
With Smart Technology the normal servo connector delivers the throttle signal to the ESC, plus the ESC can send telemetry data like voltage and current back to the receiver. The AR630 receiver throttle port (Channel 1 port only) will automatically detect when a Smart compatible ESC is connected. ESCs with Smart and IC series connectors can also pass along battery data from compatible Spektrum Smart batteries. Spektrum Avian™ ESCs are compatible with the AR630 receiver for Smart Technology features.
For Smart to function you must have a Smart ESC paired with a Smart telemetry receiver, and a Spektrum DSMX transmitter with telemetry. An update for your transmitter may be required for Smart features. See www.spektrumrc. com to register and update your transmitter. If a standard ESC or servo is plugged into the throttle port on the AR630 receiver, the throttle port will operate normally (PWM signal) like any conventional RC system.
Exclusive Spektrum™ AS3X® technology enhances flight stability by countering the effects of wind, turbulence, and other outside forces to help your aircraft fly smoothly and with precision. You'll feel like you're piloting an expertly tuned model that performs exactly as you want.
SAFE® (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology flight modes help pilots avoid over-controlling their models. SAFE uses AS3X to deliver normal flight performance, but with limited bank and pitch angles to prevent the aircraft from getting in extreme attitudes.
The AR630 features an internal antenna design that offers superior full-range performance. In addition, installation is easier than ever, plus there's no longer a risk of failure due to long-term wire exposure or abuse.
You can configure the AR630 receiver wirelessly, directly from any compatible Spektrum™ transmitter, through the Forward Programming menu. No separate computer or mobile device is needed for setup and adjustments.
To enjoy the full benefits of Smart™ technology, use the AR630 receiver with a Smart ESC and telemetry capable Spektrum DSMX® transmitter. The AR630 features fly-by telemetry and will provide vital telemetry data such as current, voltage, temperature and RPM is sent directly to your transmitter. The AR630 is not compatible with Spektrum telemetry sensors. For more information on Smart Technology please visit our Spektrum Smart Technology page.
