This radio heralds the introduction of JRs very own DMSS 2.4GHz technology. DMSS stands for Dual Modulation Spread Spectrum, which basically means that it operates using a wider spread signal than a traditional frequency hopping spread spectrum system (FHSS). By hopping using a widespread signal, DMSS is much more resistant to interference than a conventional frequency hopper.
This stylish transmitter is based on JRs well-proven X2720 35MHz radio, but with the addition of a scroll bar interface and telemetry. It offers aircraft and helicopter set-ups. A new feature in helicopter mode is the ability to resequence the transmission of the cyclic signals on channels 2, 3 and 6, without waiting for channels 4 and 5 to be processed. This speeds up cyclic response when the XG7 is used for fast 3D flying.
As standard the XG7s telemetry system monitors receiver battery voltage. When the receiver battery reaches a pre-set level the transmitter will sound a warning. The receiver battery voltage is also shown on the transmitters large, clear display. Additional telemetry sensors for RPM and temperature measurement will be available.
Each set will come supplied with 1500 mAh Ni-MH transmitter and receiver batteries and a genuine JR charger, now fitted with a UK style 3-pin plug. The charger and receiver battery has a temperature sensor, which will automatically stop the charge once the battery is full.
There is also a servo test mode, where the servos neutral positions can be adjusted via the transmitter. Each XG7 will be supplied with one of JRs new eight channel DMSS receivers, fitted with a remote antenna. A heavy-duty switch harness and bind plug will also be included.
