non-updated R7003SB useable?

  • Hi there,

    I have an early version of Futaba's R7003SB receiver which I would like to hook to the Competition SRS via the S-Bus connector as one of the receivers. I am hesitant now to do so after reading that the first series of the R7003SB receivers may possibly need a "pull down resistor" on the S-Bus between signal line and ground for the S-Bus to work reliable. An initial try worked fine though.

    What do you think? Can I have trust in using the R7003SB (non gold dotted version) or do you see a potential problem?

    Thank you!

    Best regards
