Spektrum AR636 6-Channel AS3X® Sport Receiver
Spektrum AR636 6-Channel AS3X Sport Receiver - SPMAR636
This new generation Spektrum™ AS3X (Artificial Stabilization – 3-aXis) makes it easier than ever to fly your planes. What is AS3X? It is essentially a 3 axis gyro built into the receiver. This gives you the feeling your plane is "on rails". The AS3X can be programmed so you can turn it on and off from your radio. Some people only want to turn it on during landing.
The AS3X is completely programmable. You can program the AS3X using your apple or Android smart phone or tablet for programming. You can also plug it into a Windows computer or laptop for programming. An application is required which can be downloaded for free. The programming application for Apple devices is currently available. The application allows you to very simply program the AS3X.
The app allows the following to be programmed:
- Select from one of 3 AS3X modes: Off, Conventional Rate, or Heading Hold
- Activate flaperon/dual aileron, delta/elevon, V-tail or dual elevator mixing
- Take advantage of servo setup options like balancing, travel adjust, absolute limits, reversing and more
- Set output and gain settings for each individual channel (change sensitivity)
- Programming via PC or iOS/Android mobile devices
- Perfect for enthusiasts interested in park flyers up to giant scale aircraft that want to take advantage of AS3X technology & stabilization
- AS3X technology—3 axis stabilization
- 3 gyro modes allow customization of the gyro performance and feel of the aircraft
- Programmable from mobile devices (iOS and Android) as well as PCs—easy setup at home or at the field (cables not included)
- Compact design
- Standard servo connectors
- AS3X Programming Cable - USB Interface - SPMA3065 (For PC) OR

Take sme time to learn to program and you'll love it
I have 26 AR636 receivers in service and wouldn't use anythinng else. Yes, it takes a little time to learn how to program it, but it is worth it. I have them in all my warbirds (B-24, F4, Spitire, Mustangs, Corsairs) and in my 3D planes, Beast 60, Yaks, 4 Extreme Flight 64" MXS/Edge/Slick, as well as others. The new wireless connecctor works with my Samsung Edge just fine. Usually program 3 flight modes, 1) fly around gains in the 25-30 range, 2) grains in 35-50 range with some heading hold for knife edge on rudder and aileron, and 3) 3D mode with gains upward of 80% for both rate and heading. On the tail dragger warbirds, even programmed high heading and rate gains on the elevator and rudder with take off flaps which corrects the left turn on the runway during takeoff from prop wash and gives a nice smooth lift of. On landing flaps, I use high rate gains only for smooth landings. The one MUST is that you program the receiver orientation in the initial set up correctly or the receiver corrections will be in the wrong direction and CRASH! To check if you have done it correctly, set one mode with all 3 surfaces having high rate and heading hold, and make sure when you move the plane it corrects in the proper direction, then reprogram that mode back to wherever you want it. For more advice, Specktrum has been invaluable to me, or you can look on my thread in Hobby Squawk for specifics under Hugh Wiedman and ask me any questions.
Great little receiver; have serveral and they are great. Makes me look good in the air. Well worth the money.
AR636 6 channel
i have had great service from these i have a E-Flight F4U Corsair with the AR636, has 193 flights w/2 crashes no receiver problems ever.
rate spectrum ar636 receiver
1. Great sport receiver 2. Light weight 3. All channels operate excellent 4. Range exceptional 5. Quality excellent
Died after about 50 flights
Fortunately it died on a soft landing right at touch down. The throttle went wide open and the elevator went full down. All it did was chew some grass. But what if it was up 300 feet?. Horizon replaced the receiver but I have issues with trusting it. I have been using me AR 600 which is working great. Has anyone else experienced catastrophic failure with the AR636
Only receiver I use.
This is the receiver I use on all my airplanes. It's reliable, easy to use, has AS3X technology. I don't want to risk my models, so I always use Spektrum.
Spektrum refuses to provide any programming examples or provide any working tools to program the AS3X feature. The supposed mobile app for android "Spektrum AS3X Programmer" Does Not Work on any of the newer phones. Do not waste any of your money on any AS3X receivers. I do like the AS3X technology, It's Spektrum's declining support and quality that is really going down hill fast.

Perfect for astute students
I have several and once you learn to set them up, what once took days now takes minutes. I do not use the Relative Gain Setting to make changes from my radio, I have had issues with that and only use my IPad now for setting changes. They are pricey but I've had cheaper ones fail me.
