    Hi there,

    I am currently working on a robotics project and am in the process of designing a 4 channel AM remote control. I am a little new to the whole process but think i have found suitable components but have a small question about receivers. Heres the components i have chosen so far.

    Transmitter: QAM-TX1 found here

    Encoder: RF600E
    Decoder: RF600D

    for the receiver i am looking at the following two.

    QAM-RX4 and the QAM-RX2.

    Found here

    One is a superheterodyne receiver and the other is a super regen reciever. I have looked them up in textbooks but still struggle to find an answer to which one is most suitable for this application. i have a funny feeling either would be suitable but just wanted to check. any advice would be most appriciated.

    thanks,

    Lewis

    Hello,

    I would take the superhet, QAM-RX4.
    Superreg recievers can make some RF noise.

    Most super-regen receivers are used in cheap toys and do not perform well.
    Most super-heterodyne receivers are high quality and perform very well.
