Default Jr 7202

Hi guys

Thinking of upgrading from my optic 6 to a jr 7202. I really like JR's programming features and the 7202 is the right price for me. I should be able to grab the 7202 and an extra pcm 790 reciever. I need 2 pcm's, one fore my GP 27% cap 232 (currently running on FM) and my stinger 50 heli. I have a few other planes that don't need pcm and currently have tower(futaba) 7channel recievers. Since the 7202 is synthesized and can use any channel is it possible to use it with a futaba reciever.

Thanks
Cameron

No, Futaba and JR are NOT compatible, something that has to do with the frequency shift. I can never remember which is positive and which is nevative, but FUTABA and JR are different.

If you are going to buy a new radio now is time to switch to 2.4. You don't have that much invested in 72. Do it now or later. Dennis

Not a bad idea i guese. I could always go DX-7. Is it possible that i can order it somewere without the servos. I am little concerned about this low voltage cutoff with 4.8v. My 27% cap has a 6v setup but i am concerned about the 4.8v on the heli.

That is everywhere on the web-----After one full year that is the only place I've heard of it!

Can it happen? YES. Does it happen____ I've yet to see it and I can't find anyone who has.

There are posters on here like one "BillS" who doesn't have the DX7 but knows all about it. These are the types putting out that information.
All you have to do is exercise the same common sense required on all RC systems and you will be home free!
We have a load of DX7's in operation and even the newbies haven't screwed one up yet.

The only cases that have even sounded like they were real were electrics with BEC's which couldn't handle it. Apparently some ESC's also. I don;t fly electric so I cannot comment on that.

I know that we have electrics flying with DX7's and they are as happy as the IC guys.

Your choice but I dropped a 10X for the DX7 and have never looked back. Flawless!

That is good to here onewasp. Concidering i realistically only do 1-2 flights on my heli I think it wouldn't be to much of a problem. Was thinking of going DX7 with AR-7000 for heli and i think AR-6200 for plane since i don't need 7 channels.
