    RE: Help me decide on a radio


    ORIGINAL: HoundDog

    Watch what XPS presents at the AMA show in Onterio next week .... Price and capability that's unbelievable ....
    Oh dear XPS rears its head again, the last XPS only hopped channel when attached to a Frog, Graupner dropped it from its books very quickly.

    RE: Help me decide on a radio

    I used the XPS in a Futaba WC2 and it locked out in three separate positions on its first flight, even though a range check before flight checked out OK, further testing lead me to the conclusion that I will never trust anything from them again, the thread of dissatisfied customers was an epic of complaints from all over the world with no explanation from them except a withdrawal from the market, once bitten twice shy, never again.

    RE: Help me decide on a radio

    the thread of dissatisfied (XPS) customers was an epic of complaints from all over the world
    I don't remember who said it but my favorite quote from that thread was "it worked great until it didn't"

    RE: Help me decide on a radio

    My favorite was the picture of the Frog with the XPS Rx strapped to its back with the caption "I finally got it to hop".

    RE: Help me decide on a radio

    Hi George,

    I would be comfortable with a Weatronic Transmitter if I could get one.....otherwise it may be the DX18/QQ...

    Hope all is well with the jet.
