My friend would have the same problems. We also sent our Futaba's in for service and asked them to be sure to check the solder connections. We went to Jim's system because, we both really liked our old 8U and 9C's and we both had a lot of compatable 72 receivers we could go back too if need be.
We have since discovered that any non-hopper system is questionable to fly at our field. We have both went to a hopper system, him to Futaba and me to Hitec and eliminated our problems. So-my question is this, has Jim went to a hopper system?
BTY, I had a module, xdp, and about 10 receivers.

yup, the XPS system is now hopping full time. I started using it after this update, but in use at events like SEFF, I've had no radio issues.
