DSC port: yes

why would you need a DSC port on a 2.4GHz radio?

looked at the flysky website, yup, PPM output on the DSC port, maybe cars and boats need trainer ports?

Take a 15$ radio, add your stickers, sell for 60$.
Seems like a really good business plan!
Although they DID manage to get it in silver colour.
Must be real silver then ;)

Also, those 'venom' stickers look photoshopped :I

No, I would not think so. However, they may need a P/C simulator connection?? :ugeek:

HAS caused interfernce issues with Spetrum DSM car systems (mine included)
No other brand seems to be effected by these radios

Not too bad actually, I used to have one.
recivers only US$6 !!!!
How can the other brands keep charging us $NZ100++ for car recievers ???

Because some people are stupid enough to pay that much!

I just priced extra receivers for the JR DMSS system I'm going to be reviewing shortly:

4ch parkflier receiver: NZ$115
6ch parkflier receiver: NZ$145
full-range 8-channel receiver: NZ$254

would this explain why some (car) Futaba, Spektrum etc transmitters are far far cheaper than they would have been 2 years ago ??
