XPS has a warning build in to warn us about this situation. the drop-out voltage of XPS is higher then the one of the competitors - so as a user we have to pay special attention to this. JD has announced a significantly lower drop-out voltage and the ability to send the servo signals sequentially again for his new upcoming designs - so obviously he knows about the vulnerability. whilst this is not the most critical element for me personally it is a point of concern to worry about and take into consideration when setting up a plane. (i had to drop BECs in several larger size planes and put in A123s because of this - which i regard as inconvenient - and BTW this is real i did have lock-outs in flights)
So you think a123's are only important to use with xps 2.4ghz systems, you need to reread the quotation you inserted. He quotes one competitor as being lower, not all. I beleive that is Futaba and what I think was said in same piece you have edited from was that new XPS gear will be matching that low end voltage rating.
Also on yr other post re small receivers, the same post you have edited from also states the Pico etc receivers are at FCC for approval and will be released some time in the fall. It is only 15 days into fall with apx 75days to go. surely you can hold off changing all yr equipment for such a short wait.
If you cant go buy Jetti, ahhh but thier tied up in FCC now too so I guess it is a level playing field.
