Hi all

I am a newbie in this forum  Salute
Kindly excuse and guide me if my post here is a repeat. I did a search but couldn't find an existing JR XG 7 post.

Looking for advice from the veterans here on buying an JR XG 7 radio. Help Me

Two reasons why I want to go for it

1. It is from JR
2. It supports 110/230V

Agree, I can get a convertor and stick to Futaba or Spektrum. But thinking why not the new JR XG7. I
see it on ebay-US.

http://cgi.ebay.com/JR-XG7-2-4Ghz-DMSS-RG831B-Mode-2-XG7-M02-/170572948651?pt=Radio_Control_Vehicles&hash=item27b6f0a4ab

Also, any govt approval related problems that I would face in India?Anything else I may be missing?

I wanna put up my JR Rx on a trex 500 3g flybarless.

Thanks in advance, all
 Bow

This thread discusses the issue (although the XG7 is only pointed to in an rcgroups.com link) :

http://www.rcindia.org/radios-and-receivers/jr-going-completely-fhss-parting-with-spektrum-dsm-dsss/

It is supposed to be a better RF link. On the down side, you will not find cheap second hand or 3rd party receivers for a while.

Any 2.4Ghz is pretty much the same for regulations, and you are never really 100% clear if you imported/brought it with you.  But then that is how pretty much everyone operates, and carrying it with you is not a problem in general.  This issue has been discussed so many times, no point in me repeating it again.

Thanks Anwar; and nice to know you hail from Thrissur Smiley

I've read about the XG7 compatibility problems in the recent past, but I am not really looking fwd to backward suitability, 'cos I don't own a good 6ch or greater radio anymore except for my stock esky one. Again, the ebay sale includes the 8ch RG831B rx.
So I am looking at a lifetime with no more 3rd party rx if that is not calling myself a bit overconfident  >Cheesy

I would be carrying it with me on my return trip along with my 3 helicopters(hopefully), whenever that happens. I pray I don't have to sell them out at the "customs" Smiley

And where do you sneak out and fly in Kerala without much local attention  or you fly only in Doha Grin. Let me in on your little secret!

So, is it a go ahead from your side on the XG7?

I wouldn't bring 3 helicopters and a radio all together, at least not without spreading them in multiple checked in bags Shocked

We find local schools, colleges etc (being in touch with your alma-mater helps!), or paddy fields near our houses in summer Grin

About the radio, it is too new, so I cannot make any personal recommendations other than "it is from JR, it is their next step in technology, so it MUST be good".  Caveat Emptor !

Ofcourse, I would be spreading em Thumbs Up. And it's not one radio.
It's gonna be 3  Wink
One 4ch, esky 6 ch and the new 7ch I might end up buying. I might even get them there in 2 hoilday trips or so.

Yea, primarily what worries me too is it's new. So I'm a bit skeptical and thinking of waiting a bit.
Howsoever, every morning I wake up and make sure it is still available in ebay  Drool

You fly your helis too in the fields there? No local distractions? I'm quite surprised!

Thanks for your suggestions.

Hope to meet up some time Smiley
