Hey guys

I own a DX7 SE and I'm happy with it. Might need a slightly better calibration (since mid-stick doesn't match the color marks). so i bought a dx6i. definately not happy with it, got all the potentiometer problems and stuff. so i decided to swap for a dx7 or some other radio that's kinda like it.

JR does have a DSX7, is it just a copy of the spektrum one? who makes them? could there be any difference in firmware and/or hardware?

is there any other 7-channel radio on the market that works with the dsm2 codec?

JR and Spektrum are (to the end user) the same thing.

2.4 is proprietary so they arent cross compatable.

Other manufacturers wont work with each other.

JR and Spektrum are the same.

JR wont work with Futaba or Airtronics stuff etc

You can recilabrate it yourself. There`s a fix if you search

Flybars. Who needs `em.

that's actually not the point i was getting at.

@tosh - yep, thanks. i've already got all the information to do the recalibration

just wanted to know what's different between the JR DSX7 and Spektrum DX7 and if there's another JR radio that's 2.4Ghz and fits in the price spectrum of a dx6i & dx7 (se)

just buy an JR X9303 or better and be done with it. the cheap radios are just that cheap. DX7(SE) is a good radio but lacks alot of features the better radios do.. and the 6i.. well its a cheap toy for the most part.

I used to have a Futaba 7C, but I hated that it lacked the servo monitor. Besides that, it was ok. I'm actually not missing anything, but a working trainer plug, on the dx7se. but i'm think of switching to futaba or some other brand. :-/ but there ain't much choice besides jr, futaba and the german graupner ones.
