Default JR XP6102 or X-378 (Just got the 378)

I changed the topic subject:
My new question is on my last post. Thanks.


--------------------------------------------------------------

Hi, I'm thinking on buying the JR XP6102.

Does it have the timer function? Because I think this is very important.

Thanks

It has a total model timer, but not a flight timer.

I was going to buy the 6102, but because there is no countdown timer I stoped to think more about.

So I found the JR X-378 that have 1 more channel, and the count down timer.

I live in Brazil, here I can buy then for (changed to dollars):

6102 + Complente Kit with PCM receiver = $350
X-378 + Complente Kit BUT with FM receiver = $437

This is the only options I can afford, and have to be a JR radio, the 6102 is cheaper and comes with PCM receiver, the 378 is more expensive but have 1 more channel and countdown timer and more functions. I will not use any Gas plane, so the PCM receiver will not make a huge difference, but the 378 is a lot more expensive. Here in Brazil $87 difference is 3 times more than there, so it's a lot of money to me.

So that is my dought. What should I do?

Thanks

Serio cara!! De onde você é?

Aqui em BH o 6102 ta custando R$1050 e pode-se dividir em 3 vezes sem juros, novo com receptor PCM.
É numa loja que sempre compro as coisas, pessoal gente finissima lá.

Chama-se Speed Hobbies, fala com o Leonidas ou Lucas, e fala que foi o Rodrigo Abras que te indicou, que era para fazer preço bom!

Valeu pela informação! Eu sou de Porto Alegre RS e principiante no RC. Estou pesquisando um pouco antes de comprar meu radio. Estou entre o jr 6102 e o futaba 7c.

Abraço

Cara, eu só vi os preços na internet. O JR X-378 é bem mais caro do que os demais (não é pro meu bico) mas também é bem mais sofisticado. Pelo que eu vi no manual ele tem 6 mixagens livres sendo que duas incluem trimagem. O 6102 tem 4, uma com trim. Já o 7c tem somente três e nenhuma com trim. A trimagem na mixagem é importante caso você queira usar um servo em cada metade do profundor ou dois lemes etc. Para mim o mais importante é a qualidade de construção do radio. Eu não sei se nesta faixa de preços os sticks são os mesmos dos rádios básicos. Eu sei que o jr 652 tinha os mesmos do 8103 !

Abraço

I just got the 387. I'm very impressed with it. It handles very well and it's very beautifull.
The Screen is perfect and the menu are very easy to navigate. In 20 minutes I already learn everything (reading the manual and trying) that the radio can do.
I sure I got the right one for me. 387 it's better than 6102 for me.

Thanks for everyone.
