JR X8 DMSS system arrives

Postby RCModelReviews » Mon Oct 03, 2011 12:07 am

The JR X8 DMSS system has just arrived on my desk so I'll be looking at it this week.

I wish I could get a Futaba 8FG and a DX8 on the bench at the same time so I can do a full comparison of all the brand-name 8/9 channel offerings on the market right now.

Did you hear that Futaba and Horizon?

Probably not :?

I've got to say I'm a bit worried about Futaba's corporate competency these days.

First I attempted to contact Great Planes to see if they would make a T8FG available -- no reply to either of my attempts.

So I went to Futaba's corporate site and used the address listed for "International Technical, service and consumer sales questions".

The response from Futaba's mailserver?

<r/c@futaba.com> Error 550 5.1.1 User unknown

Hmmm... you would think that they might:

a. check their published email addresses for syntactic validity
b. check their corporate contact addresses for accuracy

This kind of error is understandable on small company or personal websites -- but on the website of a multi-national corporation like Futaba?

Or was it my previous comments on their S-Bus technology perhaps?

UPDATE:

I just went to their .jp site and tried to use the contact form there for RC inquiries. Just as many problems and issues.

Finally managed to jump over the hurdles and through the hoops. Let's see what (if anything) comes of it.

Hi Bruce! I have problem with my tx-rx JR XG8 & RG831B with RA01T satelite! Today i go to the Airport for Flying and my rx does not response normal, One time i don't have a signal with my model!
Before fly i do a range check but i don't see the receiver and all it's still ok. After the fly thank's god i don't break my model i see the rx and satellite led is flashing if the Tx go far! At 50m all the Led are flashing!
What can i do!
Today i see to the Jr Site the new Firmware 0001-0011 and i update my tx, the problem is still there again!
Why? Where is the problem????? Does the Tx or Rx is damaged!
This combo i bought from RC711!
