Default "JR" new 2.4 is called DMSS????

Is this true from what I have been reading around the web?

Is DSM2 already dead?

Oh boy here we go......

JR is a Japanese company and has had ties with Horizon for some time. JR was forced to go into partnership with Horizon for the 2.4 GHz market, but they could only supply DSM2 radios for 9 channel and above. They were not allowed to produce under the JR brand anything below, Horizon/Spektrum were supposed to all the lower end sets.

When Horizon/Spektrum showed the DX8 and DX10, it basically meant that the agreement had expired. Now, in Japan DSM2 is not allowed to use 100mW as the authorities classify it as a DSSS system and not a FHSS system. Therefore JR and Horizon came up with DSM(J) for the Japanese home market. DSM(J) uses the exact same hardware but with different software embedded, meanwhile it seems that JR was reviving their original 2.4 GHz system and have released it as DMSS. (Dual Modulation Spread Spektrum )

The same system will be used for ground based RC and will use DSSS but when in a airborne system will use FHSS as the scheme. I have to assume that this will depend on the receiver being used, it also supports Telemetry !

The current set is called the XG7 with a possibility of an XG11 being released next year.

The export manager for JR has stated that they will continue to support DSM2 for the forseeable future.

Another reason is that JR want to enter the entry level 2.4 GHz arena and currently they cannot due to the licencing agreement with Horizon/Spektrum for the DSM2 systems.


There is a bit of info on various other RC Forums including the statement from JR's export manager.

Google it and a few things pop-up. I have a lot of money in DSM2 receivers and would not be a happy camper if they already switch technology.

While we won't see it offered through HH at this point. This site makes it quite clear that this is aimed at many markets. Check the add, there is a place to select the type of AC plug for different markets, but the charger is only for areas on 220-240Vac. If FCC approval is granted, then look to see them hit our shores, though product support may be a problem for a while.

MacGreggors in the UK certainly seems to be promoting it.

As I said earlier, Mooney Takamura has stated that they (JR Propo of Japan) will continue to support DSM2.

Remember that Horizon/Spektrum own DSM2 and that JR manufacture under licence, so even if (or when) JR wind down their DSM2 operations, you will still get DSM2 stuff from Horizon under the Spektrum brand.

JR Prop has a 7ch DSMJ radio below the 9ch Tx in Japan.

It is actually a improved "7ch" JR 2610.

Spektrum DX7 is based on a JR radio.

It's some kind of strategy, Spektrum is placed as a budget brand, JR Propo as top class brand in the US.

Strategy- I'll say !
Horizon has simply run away with the 2.4 market.
The 2.4 as sold here work extremely well and the various radio features such as Bind nFly -simply OWN the small model marketplace.
