I have a X8103 Xmtr running in SPCM mode. I am experiencing some glitching on one heli (I know the source) that I believe would be resolved by going to 2.4 ghz.

I want to try a 2.4 ghz system without going the full route right now. Is this: http://www.ronlund.com/rcheli-prod/SPMMSJR710.html a viable alternative for the short term for doing that?

Thanks

Jack

I also had a jr8103h, and I have that module, It did not work good for me and I was experiencing some major chatter, it would work great when I hold the module in the back, but thats hard to do when i am a pincher.

I have the Jr11x now, and would like to use the 8103 radio as a back up if needed,

my dx8 went back for repairs so I picked up the 11x, now I have the dx8 for sale, no more spectrum brand for me,

That indeed is a viable alternative. One person's bad experience does not set a trend. The air module system works well and can breathe new life into your 8103. Just make sure to set the modulation to PPM or the thing won't work.

Re Air Module!
I also have had great results with both a XP9303 and an 8103H with the Spektrum DSM9 module. I have also used it with a number of BNF micros from Horizon. You can not go wrong and as I fly my planes on 72mhz I can switch as I need!

The original air module transmitter RF section apparently had some "fit" problems in certain transmitters. I believe there was a "fix" kit for it, to make it fit the TX more securely.

The newer version with the integral transmitter doesn't seem to have had many reported problems.

You may want to send it in for a checkup.

Original DSM9 Module
The original DSM9 modules had a separate antenna with a wire to connect them. The newer version has the built in antenna and you can plug the opening or leave the original in (My choice as I still like to see the fishing pole when I fly!
Horizon was updating the unit at no or little cost and I beleive they still will so check them out!
Good Luck Nasty1!
