Default Jr XS3

hi, i juz got the xs3, but it says there "JRpropo" instead of "JRracing" at the base of the tx, and also it says there "10 model memory" and its in 40mhz... all the functions and features are the same except those i mentioned.

my lhs said that its the japanese made one, anyone of you have the same radio? the xs3 just arrived here in the philippines so thats why im asking you guys...

I believe JR Propo is the name for JR Racing overseas.

I just bought my XS3 from the LHS here in Australia and my Radio says JR Propo on the bottom like yours does. But it clearly says Made In Malaysia on the back..

Yup,
Mine has 10 Model Memory as well...I think it is THE BEST Value for money Radio on the Planet. The standard servo's definately need replacing though for a better quality version.

The frequency list should be in your manual.

Mine is in 40MHz and has channels 61 - 74 Inclusive.... Thats 14 in total...

This is my first FM Radio with so many features so I am still getting used to what all the functions do.

fatdoggy: the frequency list in the manual is for the U.S. made ones, 27 and 75mhz only...

sausage_link: the number of frequency depends on the model, the 27mhz has 6 channels, 40mhz has 8, the 75mhz has 30 can you believe that! well, at least we have 10model memory and they dont hehehe!

CustomfibreR/C: try scanning the channel menu, it say there 61-75 but if you scan the channels available you can only acces 8 of them, it goes like 61, 63, 65.... so it jumps 3channels, corrrect me if im wrong cuz i only tinkered with it once, busy schedule hehe....

Yes you are totally correct.. Not all channels available on the receiver are dialable on the transmitter

I don't know why they have done that

Never Mind.. Still plenty of options to get one out of trouble...

It could be because of regional regualations. In Japan or elsewhere all the channels may be legal but for your region of the world only a few of those channels are allowed. JR may lock out those channels awtomatically at the factory when it sends XS3's around the world to abide my regional regulations. Just guessing...
