Hi everyone!!! I have a dumb question for you, I got a 9303 (Air) on a deal but I really need a heli version, is it possible to send it to JR and they could switch to heli?? I already tried to contact them on email but had no response.

Probably the answer is no but I just wanted to ask.

Thanks in advance for your help!!!

Mmmmmm... I dun know!!!!!

No real reason you can't use the radio as it is. I'd just take the rachet out of the throttle stick and maybe move the flight mode switch.
The 9303 air has all the same programming it just defaults to airplane mode is all...

Your request would not be a cost effective repair.

Would the Horizon Service center convert a Air 9303 to Heli-No

Please disregard my dumb question, the FedEx guy just walked in with my Tx and is the heli version, it has the T.Hold on the right, and on the display readx XP9303 (H) and has no ratched and has the 3 flight modes, heli, air and glider. So I guess I'm good.

Thanks for the help!

Mmmmmm... I dun know!!!!!

Even so, any JR service centre would be able to do that at minimum cost. It's a no brainer IF you know what you are doing.

Well, no.

Those are not modes, but 3 different types of programming.
Flight modes are normal, idle up 1 and idle up 2.

I'm nit pikin but thats the truth of it...

Anyway you gotta heli radio so that's good.

Software is identical between the air and heli versions btw, only different as noted is the switch location, throttle ratchet, and new model default type.

I ground down the "ratchet" on my DX6i so it would be a "heli" radio. It was very easy to do.
