If those are your absolute choices, I would choose the JR ......

Neither would be my personal choice but again , I’m not just looking for “bargains” .... 😉
Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

Yep they are my absolute choices and a I have a JR XP8103 too... All good old school transmitters.. “bargains” are my game.. Though I do have a spektrum module (For the JR), so I can use the AR7010 receiver that I have too...

Oh. Whats wrong with using the JR with a really nice touch screen..

WOW I was wrong. You still a JR guy.. Guess what. I was able to solder in a Coin sell battery holder (Like in Computers) into my 10x.. Now it's very easy replace the backup battery... I did it because I wouldn't find a battery with the correct solder tab spacing..

I was thinking the same as well , ie soldering battery holder. Did you end up removing the old battery after soldering as I'm sure there 's still some residual voltage. Or does it matter to the electronics that a little more voltage is applied and not fry anything ?? Thanks

I would think that original battery would have to be removed so that the holder can be soldered in its place .....

I was just thinking of soldering wires to the PCB ,as I understand that removing the original even for a second renders the transmitter inoperable and it's not just losing the settings and needs sending the unit to the factory or something like that .

The purpose of that button cell is to act as a “back up” to the main battery in the event the main battery goes dead OR if the main battery is removed for an extended period of time.

If you remove the button cell AND the main battery at the same time, the transmitter will not become “inoperative”. What would happen is that you will loose the model programming.

You can send Tony @ Radio South an email to verify this info before you proceed .

If you leave the old depleted button battery in place and solder leads to connect another battery, then both batteries will be connected in parallel. Hence the button battery will have a lower voltage than the new battery draining the new battery until both reach equivalent voltage level. Not a good idea, button cell should be removed. However, to Juan's point, check with Radio South if by removing the button battery your transmitter becomes inoperable as per your concern. I highly doubt it, but I don't own JR.

Na both legs are solder in.. Had to solder a resister leg to get the Coin battery holder to the correct spacing, and the X-Cell heli is still programed in (Didn't loose the Heli information) Anyway Guys, here's how far I've got with my Raptor 90. Almost finished, as for the flybar.. I used a T-Rex 700 one on this head (Raptor 60/90 too short).. But I had to grind new flats on the bar, because the grub screw holes are further a part than on the normal 60/90 head (Plastic). Please take a look.. And let me know if anything is out of order...
