JR 11x DSM questions
Its been a while since I have spent much time on the sticks of a radio. I now have my Phoenix sim loaded back into my daily use PC. Have my 11X connected through a Sim Stick. That is bringing back some muscle memory of flying, feels pretty good. I was never that great of a pilot to begin with so it shouldn't be hard to get back to that level.
As for the topic of this thread, My 11X DSM is one of the first 11X's with the pre DSMX protocol. My 550 size electric helicopter has a HC 3SX with 2 satellites connected. Just getting back into the hobby, what I am wondering is should I purchase a different radio for actually flying models and use the older 11X for the sim?
Is it ok to use my older radio to fly a model?
Can my radio be upgraded to DMSS?
I also need a TX battery to replace the NiCd, any suggestions on lipo replacement?

Jr 11x while now an "older" design is still a great radio. if it is pre DSMX it means that it is DSM2... no biggie. Still works fine. I am sorry I sold mine so long ago.

Don't stress it... just fly...

I do still like the 11x alot. I spent alot of time holding various radios at IRCHA some years ago, the 11x fit my hands like a glove. Similar to how i ended up purchasing a Sig P320 over a Glock.
So being on DSM 2, is there a greater risk of having my signal disrupted potentially causing a failure?
Battery replacement suggestions?

Look at hobby king they have a LiPo that will slip right in that TX. You will have to take it out to charge it. I recommend purchasing 2 batteries and hot swapping them that way you always have a charged battery to install when needed
