well well billl how did i bring you out of the wood work....LOL........He is talking about swithing over to the Helios.....One more feature like the jr crystaless set up will not hurt. You can still use the spectrum with the Z-1 he he chose to.

If i were to go to the spectrum band, i would go Nomadio. Nomadio simply the best featured and balanced radio on earth......also the most god ugly radio on earth.....LOL

Backwards means that I'm pulling on the trigger to accelerate forward.

It looks like the JR is about 70 bucks more than the KO. That's about 3 crystal sets worth. I might as well get the KO, sell my JR, and buy two crystal sets.

I got the Helios with no module for $180. Why spend more for old technology?

Yes, Nomadio is butt ugly...

You don't understand i don't think. You can get the Helios under the JR name brand with the JR crystaless system. so you get all thirty channels.

to each is his own

Oh, I do understand. But I wouldn't settle for 30 "shared" syn channels when I can get 80 "unique" ones. No conflicts ever...

And, at Speedworld, I had nothing but trouble using 75Hz crystal-less with my old JR-XS3. Not so with Spektrum.
