I am going to add one of these to my JR 8103. Could I get some feedback from some users on these? I have read a lot about them and have read good and bad about each but wanted to get a few opinions from some RR users. Thanks.

I have had 100% success with the Spektrum gear for over a year now, I highly recommend it.

I have tried the XPS gear, and it worked, but the owner of XPS seems shady at best and many of his claims have been proven exaggerated.. I really dont trust using his radio gear at this point. You can visit rcgroups and search out xps if you have about 12 hours to burn

Just food for thought..

Yeah, I read all of that thread but I still liked what the XPS system had to offer. That is why I am torn between the 2. Thanks for your reply.

What does XPS offers that you like? As it stands the claims have all been proven to be false.

You're right. There have been a lot more posts since I read the threads there last week, especially the new posts today. Now I see why not to get an XPS system. I am thinking Spektrum now. I originally thought the only problem with XPS is the low voltage power issues but I see that is not the case anymore. Thanks for the heads up everyone.

The XPS Rx is really sensitive to interference from servo leads running close by (ie closer than 3cm). Manifests as random servo jitter & wander. I don't think that's good enough, and cannot recommend the system.

I got low voltage issue on Spektrum also. However, keep the voltage over the recommended point is not that difficult. Get a good regulator/BEC and a good battery pack (lipo/liion) and you're good to go. Now I'm running 2s 2500 evolite regulated by Fromeco The Regulator and it is just so reliable.

My problems have nothing to do with voltage, as the Fromeco setup works as advertised.
