Default Jr Pcm9x

Hello Danny

I'm about to order a JR radio for our Raptor 30. Fellow pilots have recommended the 3810 for it's ease and versatility. The PCM9X has just arrived on the scene, however. What are it's advantages, and will it take over from the 3810? Should I stick to tried and tested, or go for the latest? Cannot find reviews or information on the web, hence the post to you!

Regards
Pieter

Actually to date we do not know what the features will be of the 9 channel system, we've made requests for features, but do not know what will be included. We've found that most customers do not use all of the features of the 8103. The new system will likely have more features, but it also may be more complicated.

Thanks for your prompt reply, Danny.

Looks like we'll go with the 3810 then! (I assume this is similar to your 8103.)

Have a great day
Pieter

Yes, the 8103 is the US version of the 3810, there may be some slight differences between the two, but they are very similar.

As far as the servos are concerned, would 4X8201, and the 810G (with the Futaba gyro GY240) for the tail, be a reasonable setup? If you think I can do it more economically or effectively, then I'd be keen to hear.

Many thanks
Pieter

I actually do not have any information on those servos, they are not model numbers that we carry, though they may be the same servo as servos we do carry.
