"I had the 9303 in my hands today!"

Hi guys,

Talk about coincidence! I am working a trade show in Windsor England and an
Aussie friend who sells a small loader has rigged it with servos and got the
new JR 9 to run it.

He flys IMACC gas stuff and JR.

Here's some stuff about it for those of you thinking of getting one.

First it is very much the 8103 program, so those of you already with an 8103
programming is normal for an open class ship.

It has Stylus style sliders on the sides.
It has a sort of rolling pin 1" long vertical 'mouse' on the right side of
the screen which allows you to rip thru the menu choices extremely
effectively. No hunting back and forth trying to 'see' where you need to find what you
want to change. You can do switch assignments. It is very light and uses the
same battery set up as the 8103 except for the pack has 9v battery
connectors on its end that slide into terminals, you know the mail and female ends on
a standard 9v alkaline type connectors (at least thats what they looked like
I didn't actually pull the battery) I did note that it does still have the
little plug on the board that the 8103 battery uses so I am guessing either
config works.

The screen size is very nice and there are 3 small rectangular buttons on
the left side of the screen that allows access to the 'adjustment' menu. To
get in the main menu, you simple hold down the 'mouse' roller, yes it not only
rotates for moving the cursor around on the screen it also acts as the
'enter' button.

No it does not do shift select. Z and S PCM and PPM same as the 8103.
Unlike a Stylus you can switch from aero to heli or sailplane models without
pulling cards or losing setups.

It has a two position switch on the top back right and a three position
switch on the front left face. Likely a little soldering could move them to swap
positions if you wanted the same access to flight modes (Launch, thermal,
reflex) like the Stylus. But from what I could feel, using the face switch
during launch proceedure would be no problem accesswize.

For those of you using lame ducks (versus the JR whip), the 9 uses the same
'inny' antenna as the 8103. (the Stylus uses and outy..screws into a mount
on the top, instead of deep inside).

Module is the same and there is a fuse still buried in there (pretty sure)
to protect the system against our charging abuse.

Shortcoming to me is digital trims on elevator, it would be neat if the
right lever could be used as elevator trim...beep beep beep beep..(question...was
that up or down trim movement:-).

So eat your hearts out....Gordysoar got there first again ;-)

Looks like slope west of London this Saturday with the British Nats Champ
again...gorgeous weather is supposed to end tomorrow nite.

North Dakota Sunday nite!
Gordy

No you didn't! The software for the US market is very different than the
9X. The case and face are the same from what I can tell. Hopefully though,
many of your comments will be true with the 9303. Hope you had a great trip
to England! gv

Hey Gordy.
I have been using a 9Z for several months now. George says that the software for the US market is different. I don't know. I have found the 9Z to be a nice radio, and a good replacement for my 3810 (8103). Spring is here. When are you coming back for a visit?

his Tragi and actually using it...

The XP9303 is not in the hands of Gordy. The trany he was playing with does not have the US software. It is VERY different from the 8103 programming. Should be out very soon.
