AR410 4-Channel Telemetry Receiver
The Spektrum™ AR410 receiver is a full
range telemetry receiver featuring DSM®
technology and is compatible with all
Spektrum™ and JR® aircraft radios that
support DSM2® and DSMX® technology.
The AR410 receiver features fly-by
telemetry data for flight log information
as well as receiver battery voltage. This
allows flight log and receiver voltage to be
displayed on telemetry capable Spektrum
transmitters in fly-by range, typically 300-400 feet.
For information on Spektrum Telemetry Sensors visit:
The AR410 is not compatible with the Flight Log, SPM9540. Flight Log
information is only available through a Spektrum Telemetry capable transmitter.

Receiver Installation
Installing the Receiver
Install the receiver in the normal position recommended by the airplane’s
manufacturer. Double-sided tape or foam can be used to secure the receiver
in place.
The AR410 receiver must be bound to the transmitter before they will operate.
Binding is the process of teaching the receiver the specific code of the
transmitter so it will only connect to that specific transmitter.
1. Push and hold the bind button on the receiver while powering up the
receiver. Release the Bind button once the orange LED starts to flash
continuously, indicating that the receiver is in bind mode. The receiver will
also enter bind mode if you power on the receiver and then press the bind
button before the receiver has connected to any transmitter.
2. Put your transmitter in bind mode.
3. The bind process is complete when the orange LED on the receiver is solid.
4. After you set up your model, always rebind the transmitter and receiver to
set the desired failsafe positions. See FAILSAFE on the next page.
Failsafe position is set during binding. In the unlikely event that the radio link
is lost during use, the receiver will drive all channels to its pre-programmed
failsafe position.
SmartSafe + Hold Last
Preset Failsafe
If loss of signal occurs, SmartSafe™
technology moves the throttle channel
to its preset failsafe position (low
throttle) that was set during binding.
All other channels hold their last
position. When the receiver detects
signal from the transmitter, normal
aircraft operation resumes.
Preset failsafe is ideal for sailplanes,
allowing the aircraft to automatically
dethermalize if the signal is lost. With
preset failsafe, all channels go to their
preset failsafe positions if the signal
is lost, preventing a flyaway. When
the receiver detects signal from the
transmitter, normal aircraft operation

Testing Failsafe
Secure the aircraft on the ground and remove the propellers. Test Failsafe
by turning the transmitter off and noting how the receiver drives the control
Receiver Power Only
• With SmartSafe or Preset Failsafe, when the receiver only is turned on (no
transmitter signal is present), the throttle channel has no output, to avoid
operating or arming the electronic speed control.
• All other channels have no output until the receiver has linked to the transmitter.
Range Testing
Before each flying session and especially with a new model, it is important to
perform a range check. All Spektrum aircraft transmitters incorporate a range
testing system which, when activated, reduces the output power, allowing
a range check.
1. With the model restrained on the ground, stand 30 paces (approx. 90
feet/28 meters) away from the model.
2. Face the model with the transmitter in your normal flying position and place
your transmitter into range check mode.
3. You should have total control of the model with the button depressed at 30
paces (90 feet/28 meters).
4. If control issues exist, contact the appropriate product support department.
Advanced Range Testing
For sophisticated models that have significant conductive material in them, the
Advanced range test using a flight log is recommended. The advanced range
check will confirm that the receiver is operating optimally and that the installation
is optimized for the specific aircraft.
1. Standing 30 paces away from the model, face the model with the transmitter in
your normal flying position.
2. Put your transmitter in range test mode. Range test mode reduces the power
output from the transmitter.
3. Have someone position the model in various orientations (nose up, nose down,
nose toward the transmitter, nose away from the transmitter, etc.).
4. Observe the telemetry on your transmitter. Note any orientations that cause
higher fade or hold values. Perform this step for at least one minute.
5. Re-position the receiver as necessary.
Receiver Power System Requirements
Inadequate power systems that are unable to provide the necessary minimum
voltage to the receiver during flight have become the number one cause of
in-flight failures. Some of the power system components that affect the ability
to properly deliver adequate power include:
• Receiver battery pack (number of cells, capacity, cell type, state of charge)
• The ESC’s capability to deliver current to the receiver in electric aircraft
• The switch harness, battery leads, servo leads, regulators etc.
The AR410 has a minimum operational voltage of 3.5 volts; it is highly
recommended the power system be tested per the guidelines below.
Recommended Power System Test Guidelines
If a questionable power system is being used (e.g. small or old battery,
ESC that may not have a BEC that will support high-current draw, etc.), it is
recommended that a voltmeter be used to perform the following tests.
The Hangar 9® Digital Servo & Rx Current Meter (HAN172) or the Flight Log on
your Spektrum telemetry capable transmitter is the perfect tool to perform the
test below.
Plug the voltmeter into an open channel port in the receiver and with the
system on, or simply monitor the voltage on a telemetry capable transmitter,
load the control surfaces (apply pressure with your hand) while monitoring the
voltage at the receiver. The voltage should remain above 4.8 volts even when
all servos are heavily loaded.
How QuickConnect™ Techonlogy Works
• When the receiver voltage drops below 3.5 volts the system ceases to operate.
• When power is restored the receiver immediately attempts to reconnect.
• If the transmitter was left on, the system reconnects typically in about
4/100 of a second.
QuickConnect with Brownout Detection is designed to allow you to fly safely
through most short duration power interruptions, however, the root cause of
these interruptions must be corrected before the next flight to prevent a crash.
NOTICE: If a brownout occurs in flight it is vital that the cause of the
brownout be determined and corrected.
Important: Y-Harnesses and Servo Extensions
When using a Y-harness or servo extensions in your installation, it’s
important to use standard non-amplified Y-harnesses and servo extensions
as this can/will cause the servos to operate erratically or not function at
all. Amplified Y-harnesses were developed several years ago to boost the
signal for some older PCM systems and should not be used with Spektrum
equipment. Note that when converting an existing model to Spektrum be
certain that all amplified Y-harnesses and/or servo extensions are replaced
with conventional non-amplified versions.
ModelMatch™ Technology
Some Spektrum and JR transmitters offer a patent pending feature called
ModelMatch. ModelMatch technology prevents the possibility of operating a
model using the wrong model memory, potentially preventing a crash. With
ModelMatch, each model memory has its own unique code (GUID) and during
the binding process the code is programmed into the receiver. Later, when
the system is turned on, the receiver will only connect to the transmitter if the
corresponding model memory is programmed on screen.
If at any time you turn on the system and it fails to connect, check to be sure
the correct model memory is selected in the transmitter. Please note that the
DX5e and Aircraft Modules do not have ModelMatch technology.
Frequently Asked Questions on Spektrum 2.4GHz
1. Q: After I’ve bound the receiver to my transmitter, which do I turn
on first when I want to fly?
A: Either one. Every DSM 2.4GHz transmitter has a GUID (Globally Unique
Identifier) code imbedded in its signal. When you bind a DSM receiver
to your transmitter, this GUID code is stored in the receiver. If you turn
the receiver on before the transmitter, you don’t have to worry about it
responding to another transmitter. The receiver will go into failsafe mode
while it waits for a signal from the transmitter with the same GUID code
it has stored. See the Receiver Power Only section for more information.
If a DSM transmitter is turned on first you can expect it to connect within
6 seconds of powering on the receiver.
2. Q: Sometimes the system takes longer to connect or doesn’t
connect at all. Why?
A: In order for a DSM system to connect, the receiver must receive a large
number of uninterrupted signal packets from the transmitter. This process
takes just a few seconds, but if the transmitter is too close to the receiver
(within 4 feet) or near reflective material (metal objects, carbon fiber
material, etc.) it may detect its own reflected 2.4GHz energy as “noise”.
This can delay or prevent connection. If this happens, make sure you are
a sufficient distance from metal objects and the receiver itself before you
power up and try again.
3. Q: How important is Flight Log information?
A: All 2.4GHz signals, not just DSM, are affected by proximity to
conductive materials such as carbon fiber or metal. If you are flying a
model that uses a lot of conductive materials in its construction, Flight
Log information can be helpful. The information collected when you fly
can help determine the optimum location for your receiver(s) so you can
minimize the effects of these materials on your signal performance.
