Default Multiplex Royal Evo 12 who uses it for jets?

Just wondering how many use Multiplex for their jets????

I currently have a JR 9XII (9303) and am looking to up grade?

Also curious to hear what radio is the most popular for jet pilots??

I use the MC4000 (now with Weatronic 2.4 conversion) for all my jets. It's one of the better combinations of RF link (2 way) and flexible programming (you tell it what you want, no need for matchboxes, etc) that I have seen.

You will probably find that Futaba and JR middle to high end sets are amongst the most popular for jets.

I use an Evo 12 for jets, although to date it has only been on my Boomerang Intro and Boomernag Nano. I'm currently setting up a little Goldcat 44, and this year I'll be setting up my Harpoon too. I'm using it in conjunction with a Jeti Duplex RF module at present, but I do have a Spektrum RF module in there too for the bind and fly and other parkflyers that I have. It works really well

I use a Multiplex 4000, if I could no longer use that I would use an Evo (actually it is a Royal not an Evo, Evo was just a version of the Royal and it is now discontinued and replaced by the Royal Pro). The reason I use Multiplex is that their software was light years ahead of Futaba and JR, though the Japanese are catching up but haven't done it yet as they stick to a very different methodology.

I am also using my Mc 4000 with all my Jets and still find it the most flexible set out there like you said Rob you can assigne any thing to any thing I have also just started to use the Royal-pro 16 with the new 2.4 M- link and I must say I find it very nice as well,a little different than the 4000 but also rock solid with the new 2.4 ,as of now I have not used it in any Jet as the bigger recivers are not out just now the only one out now is a 7 chanel light but the 9-12 and 16 chanels should be out soon and of course all with telemetry .
I am now using Multiplex for the last 28 years and never had any issues with it, all I can say you wont be disapointed with Multiplex!

all the best

I'm using Royal evo 12, now upgraded to Royal Pro 16, I appreciate the very easy programming and the very smart and simple hardware design.
I'm still waiting for the 2.4GHz conversion, 'cause I need at least 12 channel receiver and the RX-12 Pro M-link will be available on the market by the end of March.
I'm very happy of it, even if some menus are not so advanced as in other famous brand radios, but for my type of flying is perfect.

I have used the Multiplex 4000 with originally PCM, then upgraded to IPD for about a dozen years now on jets. I have just bought the Royal Evo 16 for the inbuilt telemetry capability and a conversion module for one of my two 4000 Transmitters. I plan to convert all my jets to 2.4 this Multiplex year.
In 40+ years of modelling, Multiplex is the only brand that has never let me down.
Regards,

John

I use the Evo 12 in my F-16 and Flash.
Still waiting to see which is the best 2.4 solution for the EVO as we can't get MPX M-Link in the states [:'(]

I also have a F16 and currently use a JR9XII or 9303 equivilant. I need at least 10 Channels to make things easier. I have the opportunity to prchase an Evo 12 for $400 USD, but will need to covert it to 2.4. So all up will cost me approx US $650?$700. Or do I wait for the JR 11X?????

I would need to learn the new program logic after many years of JR use!!!!!!!!!!! Or spend half this and get an Aroura 9 Hitec???????????????????

Thoughts please.

I used the Profi 4000 on 72 MHz for about 8 years in jets. Never an issue, awesome radio. But I am considering the Weatronics upgrade to 2.4.

While the Hitec is cheaper than the Evo and actually uses some of the MPX features, you still only get 9 channels. The Evo is way cheaper than the JR. The reason I like mine so much is the programming. Once the programming clicks for you, you almost never need the manual again.

I am using a Multiplex Royal Evo 12 on XPS, rock solid combo!! The only thing I dislike on the Evo is that you don't have different expos on each flight phase...

I hope to have time to do a 72mhz shoot out with other radios on same frequency some day, at ground level. I do worry that the increase of 2.4 has made 72mhz users lazy about frequency control and there seems to be a trend for meets going to 2.4 only. That has not been a problem for me but I hope to do some RC traveling this year. I did buy up some 72 mhz multiplex receivers as the prices tumbled because there may yet be a fly in the 2.4 ointment.

EVO12, Profi 3030, 4000 x2 etc- Its just a addiction I can control it, er anybody got a multinaught for sale?

Profi- more mixes that a bag of rats in a burning meth lab! However wait until HAL get here

Now needing to buy a new radio and very interested in the Multiplex Royal Pro 16. Primarily to be used for IMAC and with a tray. Are there any Pro 16 reviews or copy of the manual available? David.

Hi Andy,

Thankyou for taking the time to reply to my post. I have owned 3 new MPX sets since 1986 and currently have an Evo 12 which is just used for the simulator. My other brand radio had a major malfunction just before test flying a new 3m Compy 2 days ago so I am going back to MPX. For knife edge coupling do you assign a switch so that it can be on or off and what function do you use to set up the Couplings? Also, does the 16 have automatic adjustments for multiple servos on one surface, eg, setting up ailerons?Any other tips you may offer will be gladly received. Thanks again. David.

Good to hear from you guys. Have now ordered a new Pro 16 and going to send my Evo 12 in to be upgraded to 2.4 and to more channels, so will have two sets eventually.  Are there any retailers in Europe who stock a big range of MPX - our suppliers in Oz don't supply everything?

Look in dealer lists and you will see dozens of European retailers. In the UK Puntillio is the biggest stockist I believe.
