The JR 347 is and old (but good) radio. The follow-on model is the JR 388, which is what I fly. (Even the JR 388 is pretty old.)

My JR 388 does not have CCPM. I'm betting that the JR 347 doesn't either. However, you can send a JR 388 to Horizon Hobbies, and they will update the 388 for free so that it can do CCPM. (I just sent mine in, in fact.)

A URL for Horizon Hobby support-
(I'd call them to see if a JR 347 can be upgraded for CCPM)

I'm getting the CCPM upgrade for an MS Hornet electric heli. What are you going to use it for?

I hate to argue but the JR347 DOES have CCPM as an option, page 64 of the manual tells you all about it, either 2 servo Heim or 3 servo 120 degrees spacing.
You may have guessed I also have a JR 347 (and a JR 3810 (8310 in the US))

JR needs to knock this off, seriously! Mode 1 and 2 are more than enuff to know the diff.

hear hear, my JR X347 is a UK set (cos thats where I live) and it is as I described.(it is PCM Z compatable but not PCM S)
I use my X347 it to fly my Rappy as my JR3810 ADT isnt mode changeable and I fly helis throttle left and planes throttle right. I love JR gear but sometimes............
I guess I will get a JR3810 ADT in throttle left mode soon are there any differences with the JR8310 ADT apart from the model number? Any idea ball park street price TX only w/o module

Thanks for that guys. Looks like my old JR X-347 cant do the ccpm setup. It is an old radio (1990) but its done a good 12 years.

I Have An Old One
I just knocked the dust off my old X-347.

Seemed like I remembered something about swashplate mixing being in there some where.

Go into the model setup menue.
Hold both mode buttons down while turning radio trans on.

Scroll through setup options and see if you have mix SWAS.
Mine does.

With the + & - keys you can then select between NORM, 2SRV, or 3SRV.

I have never set it up for swashplate mixing, but looks like that ought to give you option of two or three servo CCPMing.

I got the radio without manual, but ordered one from horizon.
The manual I have does not mention any such mixing option and no directions for it. Might be a feature added to that radio model near end of production and the manual I got never caught up with new feature.

I will just have to hook up a flight pac one day and play with things till I figure it out.

Anyway...Check it out, yours might have CCPMing after all.

Anybody got the manual with CCPM instructions for that radio????
