Oscar Thorpe: which has better range, dsm2 or dsmx
OsceolaLongBeard: whats better? dsmx or dsm2?
CallMeJack08: im guessing you can identify a dx6i transmitter that is dsmx capable by the
"dsm X" next to the led screen? i would appreciate some clairity on that.
semtech30: Drop kick that sucker into the river and you won't need to experience
brown-out product failure. Your much safer operating receivers in a styro
box that's for sure. I no longer crash planes. Thanks.
Andre Ferreira: My Dx6i does not have "modulation" on the menu! why?
Trainboy64: @Blue79 Part 5 - I have video linked the 8Fg vx DX8 vid to this one..
Jimbolina1: DSMX uses both the frequency hopping as well as Spread spectrum in
combination at the same time which allows for a much wider bandwidth along
with the benifits of both. All new Spektrum radios use DSMX. The older
models can use DSMX recievers but you are stuck with it being used in the
old DSM protocal. You can also use your old DSM recievers with the new DSMX
radios except for the very first generation 6 channel recievers.
Trainboy64: Part 3. they feel much better than the stock DX8 ones which I found very
slippery and my thumbs would slide off the top very easily.. I like the DX8
because it has very easy programming, and though not as advanced or complex
as the Futaba 8FG it still gives you everything you could ever need in a
plane or heli.. The one great advantage of the DX8 is that it can be used
on all parkzone and Eflite BNF aircraft and helicopters. A very tough
choice for me to decide between the two but...
Trainboy64: It means your RX is only DSM2 OR that you have selected DSM2 in the
Transmitter.. check it.. set it to DSMX in the Transmitter, then if it only
binds in DSM2 it is due to the RX.
Joshua Labita: hey rob i have an older dsm2 only dx6i will i be able to bind it to a dsmx
davidmc36: The DX6i can be upgraded to DSMX
Quokka57: Ok...I've watched this vid. And read heaps along the way too. What I don't
get is how a DX6i can possibly be true DSMX. DX6i Tx's all the way up to
DSX9's are *DSM2* trannies i.e. they broadcast on only 2 frequencies. DSDX
is *frequency hopping* technology - like Futaba's FASST system. Soooo...
how can an older DSM2 Tx like the 6i, 7, and DSX9 possibly talk to the Rx
in true DSMX frequency hopping mode when the Tx still only runs the older
DSM2 twin-channel locking mode? Q:)
Blue79: @Trainboy64 Thanks for the great description of your thoughts, it's made
good sense and probalbly will help decide DX8 over Futaba for me. I think
that BNF is quite important too but now I have some homework to do
(watching your dx8 series :)).. I guess the JR 11X hasn't won you over like
the futaba and the spektrum have eh? They market it as a air/heli/sailplane
tx and I thought it could also Bind to BNF models but I could have
misinterpreted that. Thanks again!
Blue79: I like how you explained this vid, I'm using a dx4e with my mcpx and sim,
but im shopping for a computer radio. Most of the txs u use are on my list
of possibles so I'd like to ask you, if you were to only have 1 radio for
your planes and helis, which one do you think you would keep?
MandurahRC: Hi ya Rob I hear you and Simon mention the forum/s can you post a link , I
have only been into rc for a short time and where to go and what to buy is
enormous now I am enjoying your videos, very helpful nothing extreme keep
them coming Craig
trexinvert: Newbies save yourself a lifetime of headache. Buy Futaba.
Trainboy64: @Quokka57 As far as I know the older DX6is cannot do DSMX.. even with a new
DSMX RX... I tried this with an old DSM2 DX6i on a DSMX RX and it works in
DSM2 mode as expected. Only the newer ones can do DSMX but these have
additional circuitry inside...
Trainboy64: @MandurahRC Thanks Craig. google RC universe and go to the TREX
helicopters.. we post there regularly.. I will email you the exact forum as
youtube won't let me post links here..
Trainboy64: Part 4.. if I only had the choice of 1 radio.. it would be the DX8.. with
the futaba stick ends.. simply because I would need it for the BNF aircraft
I have,, eg Blade MCPX, Parkzone Stryker.. etc.. Hope that helps.. did you
see my comparison video between the 8FG and the DX8?
Trainboy64: @jack10996 I would definately use DSMX... much more robust signal.
Trainboy64: @Blue79 Hi, yes, i didn't factor in the JR11x.. it is definately a great
radio and probably my 3rd favourite.. It is in a completely different price
bracket.. you can get an 8FG and a DX8 for the cost of a JR11x.. Honestly,
the 8FG and DX8 feel better than the 11X in my opinion, but it is all very
close.. the 11X also has quad bearing gimbals that are super smooth and has
a very heavy qualityf feel about it.. I haven't flow it enough yet.. I
bought it for the looks alone.. more..
Trainboy64: Yes, Futaba is very good.. almost idiot proof... Spektrum works fine if you
understand how to use them correctly.
Trainboy64: Yes it will bind ok but the RX will drop to DSM2 mode..
Trainboy64: part 2.. it also has an option on the same screen where it will drive the
servos to either the HIGH MID or LO position and hold them there so you can
adjust the swash pitch setting to give you the correct pitch angles.. hope
that all makes sense but it makes life very very easy when setting up a new
heli.. the sticks are also super smooth. My 2nd favourite is the DX8.. it
actually feels great also, but in a different way.. I replaced the stick
ends on the DX8 with Futaba ones as.. more
Trainboy64: @Blue79 I have always been a Battlestar Galactica fan and I needed the 11X
because it looks like a Cylon.. that is the ONLY reason i bought one.. sad
huh?? LOL.. anyway, it is a great radio also and yes it does work with all
the BNF aircraft.... but the DX8 feels much nicer in your hands (in my
opinion) Just for the record.. i also changed the stick ends on the JR11x
for Futaba style sticks as the stock sticks were not grippy enough..
Trainboy64: I think it would.. if you have a newer DX5e it should also be DSMX capable.
UltiMogr: My dx7s shows dsm2 on the screen. does that mean that the rx is dsm2 only?
jack10996: hi so what do you think is better if dsmx is faster and muiltiple
frequences and dxm2 has brown out and 2 frequency bands i understand each
one but done know wht one to set my radio up with. i have a dx6i and it has
the x on the front and only borght it a cupple of weeks ago so must have
the dsmx teck alll ready on it right . many thanks mate
beyblade dragoon: Does this work with dx5e
Trainboy64: @Blue79 A fair question and not an easy one to Answer.. My Futaba 8FG is
definately my favourite.. It is pure quality and a joy to fly with.. It
feels so light yet precise in my hands. Very advanced features, all you
could ever want and totally customisable. a lot of unique features that
make setting up a heli so easy.. EG in the swash setting it also gives you
the subtrims for each servo on the same screen so you can do it all without
having to constantly switch screens.. More
storre: I have a JR X9503 DSMX that I just got and I'm getting terrible range with
my 2 receivers. OrangeRX 6ch and JR921 (DSM). The JR921 is from a year old
X9503 that was just DSM2 but I thought all this was reverse compatible. My
problem is I lose connection at about 30 meters. With the bind button
pushed in or not, I'm getting the same terrible range. I've tried flying
and I can get about 50-100 meters and I lose control. Autopilot brings
home. Is there a way to force 9503 Tx to DSM2 mode?
