The only use of "dry" that makes any sense at all is dry cell battery i.e. primary zinc or alkaline batteries rather than rechargeable Nixx batteries. That's my guess.

* Radiocommande 6 voies SPEKTRUM DX6I 2.4Ghz mode 2
* Récepteur 6 voies SPEKTRUM AR6200 DSM2
* 4 piles pour l'émetteur
* Notice complète en francais
comes with 4 Alkaline for the Tx, for that price you'd be better off with that Graupner MX-12 which is a much better radio. Spektrum now uses DSMX, DSM2 is still valid but will eventually fade away. Being in Europe the Hott 2.4Ghz system makes more sense than Spektrum.

DSMX is disabled in FR mode until the full 2.4g band is available as in other countries.

dsmx will kill dsm2...

And graupner doesn't give many parts, like rx and others...

Sure that dsm2 will no longer be avaliable ?

DSMX is the new protocol ised by Spektrum, it is FULLY compatible with DSM2. Your existing DSM2 receivers will still work.

Yes, but i wanted a nice radio, which i could keep a long time.

So receivers will still work, but radio wont.

Sorry to be heavy, but it's big money anyway...

All DSMX transmitters work with all DSM2 receivers.

All DSM2 receivers work with all DSMX transmitters.

DSM2 is NOT "going away." You will be able to keep your existing DSMX2 and DSMX receivers and use them all with any of our DSM2 and/or DSMX transmitters.

Your English is better than my French!

You will enjoy the radio, I am sure.
