If you're serious about bullet-proof control with built-in telemetry, then the JR XG6 is the radio for you. The XG6 uses JR's DMSS 2.4 GHz technology, a reliable 2.4 GHz Bi-Directional link between you and your model.
Telemetry data is built into the 2.4 GHz DMSS transmission between the radio & receiver, meaning you don't need any additional telemetry modules in your aircraft, just plug your telemetry sensors into your receiver. The JR XG6 radio includes the full range RG631B receiver. All JR DMSS receivers include built-in receiver voltage telemetry.
Programming options in the XG6 radio include separate setups for Aeroplane, Helicopter and Glider modes, a 20 model internal memory, stick modes 1 and 2 and an SD card slot for model data sharing, expanded storage and software updates (SD card not supplied).
Programming is easy thanks to JR's well-proven, intuitive user interface with data entered using the familiar scroll bar. The programming information is clearly displayed on the large, graphical screen.
XG6 uses the new JR DMSS 2.4 technology, which besides offering a secure, robust radio link to control your models also offers advanced telemetry functions and JR's new Intelligent Output System. Receiver voltage telemetry is built in as standard and other add-on sensors will give you real time feedback of information from your model such as the RPM of an aircraft propeller or helicopter rotor blades, temperature and variometer/altimeter readings.
JR's Intelligent Output System automatically selects control signals that need to be transmitted at exactly the same time and transmits the data for these channels as one complete signal frame. This ensures that there is no time delay when commanding servos used for critical functions such as a CCPM swash plate on a helicopter or when operating a four servo aileron wing.
Other features include a Touch Select System for switch selection, dual trim options, a user selected menu for frequently used functions, failsafe and programmable throttle cut.
The XG6 runs on four AA batteries, and has perfect balance on the neck strap.
What is DMSS? 100% Pure JR
Dual Modulation Spectrum System is JR's own 2.4GHz protocol. Although a late entry to the 2.4 market, DMSS can be considered as the truly 'state of the art' method of providing radio control for model use. And since JR have not rushed their own 2.4 protocol into production they have been able to incorporate the very latest techniques for Wideband Data Transmission into the next generation of JR radio control sets.
DMSS combines the best features of Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) and Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) protocols. FHSS is great for avoiding interference and DSSS offers high response. JR DMSS combines both these attributes, having both frequency hopping and high response.
DMSS also offers Two-Way Communication (telemetry), with receiver voltage monitoring as standard. Additional sensors include altitude/variometer, RPM, temperature and flight pack voltage/current monitoring.
Note that JR DMSS is not compatible with Horizon Hobby's DSM2 or DSMX.
