how do jr compare with other brands?
Is there any variance in range?
My jr r700 has been reliable for the past 10 months and after a number of prangs, How old is your oldest reciever?

ya some do use jr and some use futaba but thats because theve ben using that brand for ever and they dont want to change. I have a jr 8103 radio i fly all of my 7 airplanes and my chopper with it and i even interlink it to my flight sim its great. i have jr servos, recievers, and some gyros like them a lot. Plus got to love the 3 year warranty!

i don't think we get a 3 year warranty down here, thats good incentive to buy. do you buy online or your LHS ?

Balch, I would recommend buying 649 pcm receivers, providing you have a pcm capable transmitter.

it is pulse code modulation. if you get a hit or something crazy happens the reciever will go to a set position on the servos that you have to set up it is called failsafe. i use futaba 149 dp pcm and it works great. it is the same qaulity as the jr rx.
trust me that the failsafe is a very useful item for an emergency.
