AFAIK DSMJ does not have any functional or performance advantages over DSM2 other than being legal in those geographies where DSM2 is not.

The big mystery to me is what the "zero" hype is all about. On the surface marketing your shiny new product as a complete zero seems rather odd.

JR systems using DSMJ (AKA DSM3???) are being distributed in Europe and South Africa.
AFAIK DSMJ does not have CE certification (yet) and therefore would not be legal in Europe.

Quoting here from a team JR member on another forum.

"All of JR's Japanese releases are FHSS. The radios that come to the US are the same by physical appearance only- and even then some things are changed around slightly. Horizon takes the base program and their engineers modify it for the US market, and for all of the 2.4 radios now, they use a Spektrum RF board and antenna.

I'm sure you guys have noticed that JR has their own 2.4 modules, however they're not sold in the States. The JR Japan 2.4 modules resemble the Futaba modules.

If and when this radio is released in the States, it will be DSM."

It's all new design from "zero". The new OS have a lot of nice functions, such as 4 ailerons, 2 rudders, 2elevators mixing. 11X position as 9X upgrade, so the price will be not too high.

I second that unless they make a module that could add these better functions. Then I'd use my X9303 as a backup radio, even though its not even 2 years old...

Airpac is that a hope that we all share or are you hearing something from a source?

Sorry, I can not say too much before getting trouble. Just a little hint, the set up function will looks like 12X + 14Mz, very user friendly. By the way 11x have SD card.........

Looks either like optimus prime, or a cylon as someone else pointed out.

I'll stick with my Futaba 10CG for now.
I do love my fully assignable switches, back lit LCD panel and throttle linked timers

Wow, if it has an SD card, someone must have kicked JR in the butt. That should have been standard issue on the 12X.

honestly, I'm kind of in opposition to that trend.

the 12X has, imo, the closest to the optimal solution.

plenty of model memory, even the 9303's 30 is a pretty reasonable number. then, allow the TX to be cabled up to a computer, and save the memory files to the computer.

apparently, and I've not seen this for myself, the 12X PC-software also allows you to edit radio programming from your PC.

that's a real good idea.

IMO, the SD cards are a step in the wrong direction.

(12FG owner, with an SD card slot).

I don't know about you, but i like SD card in my 12fg. If sometimes my 12fg would have to be send to service i have all my data on SD card and i can use my data on another 12fg.

With a flash card of any sort you can store more models, easier to interface to a computer, able to update the Tx firmware for added features without having to send the radio away and if the software is done right, you could edit files on the PC then store the new file on the card, plug it in and off you go.

I've got both a 9303 and 12X. It is much more of a hassle to hook up the transmitter than simply taking out the card and putting it into a card reader. Plus there is the convenience factor. I have models that I haven't flown for a while but I do fly them. I store the setups for the unused ones on the PC. So if I decide I want to fly one of them, again, I have to hook up to the PC to get the program back into the TX. If I had massive flash card storage I'd just leave them there, with a backup copy on the PC. So decide to fly a model that hasn't flown in a while, no problem, take the Tx and go vs. having to hassle with getting it back into the PC.

The present JR solution for storage works and most people would think 30 or 50 models is more than sufficient yet there are those who want greater flexibility. Having it via a flashcard satisfies everyones needs, where as limiting it doesn't. Plus if a transmitter like the Polk tracker can have 100 memory slots why can't a top brand radio like the 12X have at least that?? JR has been far to conservative in adapting modern day electronics, hopefully with the 11X they will actually enter into the 21st century.
