I was really excited about this radio until I held one at ircha. It felt/looked "cheap" compared to my 11x. Maybe that's just because it is lighter and has a more plastic look. The gimbals were great but the screen is small. The rubber switches were nice. I would have to fly one to really know but holding it didn't make we want to buy one. I hear good things about the new jr protocol, I hope the put it in a 11x shell.

JR says they are going to announce new products at the Tokyo fair Sept. 16. It may just be XBus stuff but it looks like a no brainer to put the new sticks and XBus in the XG11 box/screen.

Still you don't fly the screen and the price is right. I plan on buying the XG14E just to try a tray radio with switches on the sticks. Note that it has 7 point curves now (with EXP smoothing). Rumor is that it has the same s/w as the XG11 - that's where the 7 point curves came from. The dark TX looks better than the shinny one !

EDIT: I am happy the new JR is not backward compatible.

I'm not vested with JR currently, so I don't have mixed Receivers.

What is another mid to high end JR radio to look at ?

I fly Futaba now and never liked the engineering in Spektrum. No BNF either.

I also held the XG14 at IRCHA. I'd have to say the feel didn't appeal to me. It didn't feel as nice in my hands as my old 10X did.

Point taken. Fortunately I want the XG14E.

Question: Is the XG11 balance function screen an actual graph ?

They are already available in europe, and I like mine a lot. For me it is mostly the shape of the TX that makes it the best available. Also xbus is nice but hopefully they will upgrade the xg8 to have it.

I am old and have tried everything else so I want a tray radio with long sticks with switches on top. I only use two switches when flying anyway. Len promises to import this radio when available. It ticks me off that other brand radio sales and marketing types want to dictate to the customer base what they want to buy and fly. If you wanted to be like Curtis you would want a single stick radio. I see no reason why you can not buy one as well. Tim Schoonard also did very well with a single stick in F3C competition.
