Jul 10, 2013 1 Comment by

The new XG14 14-Channel DMSS from JR Americas is “Pro Class” radio system with all the Quality and Features you’d expect and it is offered at a Sport Flyer Price.  The new radio features JR X-Bus Capability, combined with JR’s finest gimbals ever make the new JR XG14 the best choice in Pro Level control. Expected to hit the market in Late August 2013, the System prices start at $649.99.

While other large channel systems only offer 10 or less “non-shared” channels and achieve the additional channels through “sharing” (splitting update rates between channels to expand) or expansion, JR’s XG14 is a true “non-shared”, full 14-channel system.   In addition, thanks to JR’s creative programming and DMSS sophistication, the XG14’s 14 channels can be accessed through the use of 2 JR RG731BX X Buss receivers, creating not only true 14 channel access, but a redundant airborne system as well.  JR’s Finest Gimbals Ever: Based on our Premium Gimbals found only in the Flagship 12X Professional systems, our new CNC Machined Premium Aluminum Gimbal Base provides the ultimate in precision feel, with no flexing during quick and full stick extremes as found with standard plastic gimbals. JR’s new Premium Gimbals with CNC Base will truly have you “feeling the difference”.

JR’s New X Bus Digital Serial Data System The New XG14 is also JR’s first system to offer the new JR X Bus digital serial data communication technology. When purchased with the new JR RG731BX X Bus Receiver, the XG14 is capable of connection of up to 4 servos per channel via the X Bus serial connector.  When using the XG14 X Bus feature, this allows for connection of up to 56 Servos (4 x 14ch) via special JR X Bus servo harness (available separately). For connection of conventional (non X Bus) servos, a special conventional servo harness converter is also available.   JR World Championship Winning Dual Modulation DMSS for the ultimate 2.4 RF Link JR’s exclusive DMSS (Dual Modulation Spectrum System) 2.4GHz RF protocol offers a secure and reliable RF link that combines DSSS and FHSS capabilities into a wideband transmission system.

This DMSS exclusive combination results in not only high-speed response, but also high resistance to RF Interference for unmatched reliability. JR’s DMSS 2.4 also features a patented JR “Intelligent Output System” (IOS), which automatically selects control signals/channel priority for channels that need to be transmitted at exactly the same time, and delivers this data as one complete signal frame. JR’s unique IOS ensures there is no time delay/latency for channels used for control surfaces such as a CCPM swashplate on a helicopter, or multiple servo control surface setups in large aircraft. Another exclusive JR DMSS feature is its dual stream, bi-directional Telemetry communication system. JR DMSS transmits all Telemetry information through a separate RF stream, rather than through the primary channel stream so as not to reduce or share update rates with critical control channels as is common practice with most all 2.4GHz protocols. Receiver voltage telemetry is built in as standard in every DMSS receiver, and 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. Other Standard XG14 Features The all-new XG14 radio system provides the ability to control popular model types within the Airplane, Helicopter or Glider categories, all from the same transmitter.

Special switch labels are provided for each of the 3 categories of models so the pilot can customize the switch labeling for their main model type so these switches are easily identifiable at a glance Programming is “JR Easy” thanks to the well-proven, intuitive user interface with data entered using the JR trademark vertical roll selector to the right of the screen, as well as the four push-button entry keys to the left of the screen. Programming information is clear and concise thanks to the XG14’s large, graphical back lit LCD display screen. No matter what kind of airplane, helicopter or glider you fly, the XG14 will truly have you “feeling the difference” like only a genuine JR system can!

    Gerry,
    will the XG14 have the BALANCE (servo matching) function found in the XG11 but not available in the XG8?
