Default JR R1 Question...

I have a JR R1 with an R200 receiver and I have a question.

Is there a better receiver to use with my JR R1? On the back of the radio is says PCM Module, does this mean I can use a PCM receiver?

If so, which one? The JR home page is retarted...

Thanks....

Yes, you can use PCM receivers...you just need to make sure that for the model with the PCM receiver you have it set to transmit in PCM.

The JR PCM receiver is the R330 ....they're not cheap, but I know a lot of people that like running them

what exactly is Pulse Code Modulation? And what better performance does it yield?

Just OOC: I'll stick with my XS3 and my JR Stanadard plastic gear "race" servo for a few years

Black> Not totally sure, put it sends the signal from the radio to the receiver faster and is suppose to cut down on glitching as well.

Anyone else?

If you can, I would defintley upgrade to the JR R1 and a digital servo.

The radio is awesome and so is the digital servo.

Actually, PCM is a bit slower because of how the signal has to be processed (sp?). But it does allow for you to have "fail safe" which is good for gas racing in case your car looses your radio signal. I liked my R1, but I like my Helios better.

Just want to ask. If I have a XS3 radio and a 2 channel receiver with s3003 servo would it work well?? Or should I replace ther servo with a digital one?.

this one


Overview
The 3 channel PCM R330S receiver is JR's smallest and lightest! Featuring S-class PCM modulation, it offers 1024 steps of resolution for the ultimate in steering accuracy. The R330 is for racers looking for premium performance and small size.
Measuring a mere 1.5x 1.13x .78 and weighing just a tad over ounce, the R330S makes itself at home in even the most crowded chassis. Matched up with the JR R-1 transmitter, this makes for a world class racing control combination.

The R330 utilizes the exclusive patented ABC&W signal processing circuitry that racers have grown to rely on in JR radio systems. This circuitry provides crystal clear communication with extraordinary resistance to interference.


Specifications
# of Channels: 3
Modulation: S-PCM (1024)
Band: 27/75
Dimensions: .78 x 1.5 x 1.13in
Weight: .64 oz


(this info is from the jr website)

What are you guys talking about? The receiver is $129.95 on Horizons Web Site. And that is straight from the distributor. I am sure you can try and find it cheaper somewhere else, but Horizon is anal about their pricing.

Here is the link...

Isn't this the same one?

if you don't mind buying aftermarket stuff, novak XXL work particularly well with R1's... at least mine. I use 3 XXL in addition to the stock receiver, and glitches are VERY rare. Nobody runs PCM in races anyway... a good FM Tx/Rx signal and combo is all you'll need.

Later,
Paul

We were talking about the price of the R1 radio, not the receiver.
