It might turn out to be such a big undertaking that Horizon will just let it slide. In my little flying group there is at least 30 LemonRX receivers and we have only had one to go bad. They just had a price increase but they were $5.75 if you buy 5 at a time. I had one in a glider that got so far away I could not see it and a 14 year old boy had to fly it back for me. They work damn good, cheap and for small foamies is the way to go, so I guess time will tell as to what if anything will be done about it. We even have Hitec after market receivers that work good too.
I think you're worried over nothing as the release of the XPS transmitter is highly unlikely.....

I'll continue to use my old but trusted JR 9303 with XPS modules and receivers as they have been solid from day one.

My FrSky Taranis has been very solid for the past two yrs as well

Personally, I wouldn't touch Spectrum with a 10 ft pole . But of course , that just my opinion

Juan, yea I felt the same thing about Spektrum, but to fly my 30 plus and counting foamies not counting 8 or so gliders I was using a Spektrum module in my 22 year old Futaba 8 UAF until it finally gave up the fight, I was forced to buy a DX8 and I liked it so much that I recently bought a DX18 for my high dollar planes and I like the hell out of both of them. I can not fault them
in any way. I have got to a point that I don't say what I ain't gona do anymore, 'cause I usually end up doing it......But at 72 I hope I can last long enough to see the "XPS3216" in my hands.........

Patents last typically 14 years from the date granted, but there can be exceptions. There are still several years left on at least their original patent for the dual frequency transmission (DSM). The model match and other patents were granted afterwards.

Patent


Well, that's ok, I still want a 3216 when they hit the market. I will fly my little foamies with Spektrum and LemonRx receivers and have all the fun I can stand. I have 12 Hitec receivers for my Aurora 9, so can use the 3216 for them if I want.......
