That hasn't been my experience. While I can affirm that XPS will operate down to the lowest voltage and easily has the best range, interference is possible and I've had to remove the Nano from two aircraft. I have been unable to interfere with either Futaba FASST or FHSS.

Spektrum and FrSky are the absolute easiest to screw with. Spektrum also had voltage issues.

I have no first hand experience with HiTec because I've only used my A9 with an XPS module. Friends on the west coast report no issues with Airtronics.

I have some videos I can post and could make some more under controlled conditions.

What's ACKS?

Like I said, Futaba/FrSky/Hitec all use the exact same over-air protocol. You could have a single receiver compatible with all 3. Likewise, XPS/JETI/JR DMSS are all the same. Spektrum is the only one using their over-air protocol.

ACKs are acknowledgements. The XtremeLink system is the only system on the market that requires that the reciever send a response to the transmitter. If the transmitter doesn't get an ACK (acknowledgement) from the reciever within 862us of the data being sent, the transmitter will automatically re-send the packet. That repeats until either the receiver response gets through or the next frame occurs, at which point the new data will be used.

Sounds like frequency hopping to me .....

No, this is in addition to the frequency hopping.

There are many under appreciated benefits to XPS
