JR XG11 MV - Opinion
 
Hello, I would like some review, issues and opinions about the JR XG11-MV with DMSS Module. I have the JR XG6 and a couple DMSS Receivers, but I'm looking for more channels and resources. I found the XG11-MV with good price, but I didn't found reviews of this transmitter to take the decision. Thanks

The JR XG11-MV with DMSS Module is a quality transmitter. Although it is an older model it still offers almost all features of any current 8-12 channel radio. Being module based it allows use of various other 2.4 modules as well a older JR 72mhz (or other frequencies). I believe the current JR distributor will still service this transmitter.

I owned one several years ago that I bought at an estate sale, liked it very much. Being a Futaba guy I let it go to a club member who uses JR equipment.

I currently have two JR XG6 transmitters using Corona DMSS receivers in a couple of sport planes. Great radio, no negative issues of any kind.

A web search will yield a number of reviews and operating videos.

Buy it.

JR Propo / Dee Force Aviation is selling their last units at $600, https://www.deeforce.net/product-pag...mv-dmss-module The XG series is no longer being manufactured, so even new it is one step closer to not being supported. The XG11MV is physically larger than your XG6. As it is designed to support the older 72 MHz modules, it uses a 3-series LiFe battery rather than a 2-series used by rest of the XG line.

The XG11 programming is the most sophisticated of the XG series. On the other hand, the XG11 capacity for handling multiple servos is less than the XG14. In ACRO without resorting to the XBus, the maximum aileron servos that are supported is four. These four are meant to be grouped into a pair of two-servo gangs. In GLID configuration, it is not capable of handling the programming for an aircraft with a wing that has more than two ailerons and two flaps without resorting to do-it-yourself program mixes. The XG14 programming can support a six-aileron channel wing in ACRO and a four-channel wing in GLID.

I have both an XG11MV and XG14. I prefer the XG14 for my powered planes as it is lighter and its programming is sufficient. For my sailplane where the programming can become more involved, I use the XG11MV. As the XG11MV supports XBus, eleven channels are more than sufficient for aircraft that require multiple servos per flying surface.
