Default 8103 Programming - Complete Guide

Danny,
Will there ever be an article written like Len Alessi's JR 10 programming guide for the 8103? It sure would be nice for someone to come out with a indepth video that shows what is being described in these articles and to visually show REAL planes, radio functions and adjustments, servo installation and adjustments, electrical hookups etc. I can read about pitch roll all day long but without seeing the actual movements of an aircraft, I just keep guessing until what I think is working (whether it is or isn't).

Let's get together and produce one of those videos. We'd make a fortune, just at my flying field alone.

Example: 1- JR 8103 Radio..................................... About $500
1-8103 Complete Programming Video..... About $500

Default Agreed

I found the things that I understood about programing easy. The things that I wanted the 8103 for, were just far too difficult for me to understand and program. I ended up doing research on the net for after market books and found "Harry Higley" had one out there but couldn't find one as it was obsolete. I finally got one from Canada.


Night and day,,,, it has layman's terms and visual (photo) aids every step of the way.

I take it with me on every trip to the field

Do you have the programming guide that our product support department can email to you? That is all that I know of at this time. I do not know if there will be anything more in depth like Len's guide. If there is interest in this, it is possible to do.

dsnyder,
I recently purchased an 8103 and I love it! I use it on both my planes that I have now. I bought an Ultra Stick 60 and followed the programing guide to set up the quad flaps in sail plane mode, and it works great. However I too am a little confused with a lot of the language in the manual to do all of the other things that this radio is capable of. I am very interested in a video production of what it'll do!

I think there is a whole bunch of interest in an 8103 in-depth programming guide.

Start a poll to see!

Another Aye here! At least there should be a re-write/expanded manual for the 8103; take a cue from the more recent radios from JR (662, 378) which imo present a little more info on each function and its application.

Default 8103 Programming - Complete Guide

Got my 8103 in this afternoon, and by the evening I had couple of setups going that used most every available function, for the fun of it - didn't really have to refer to manual either (after having read the PDF copy about twice). Prior experience with the 652/662 made the transition easy. Comparing to the 662/378 manual, the later has a great beginner's approach that gives you a little more background on specific functions, eg Aileron Diff; the 8103 just drops it in front of you. Another example is for eg a recommended EXPO rate to dial in - also missing in the 8103.
Still I'm sure there's lots of tips and tricks that they should add to the manual - a cheap way for JR/Horizon to add value to the radio imo.

Tips and tricks are always welcome.

But basic programming on JR Radios is a piece of cake, just read the screen.
