Default Jr Xs3 Pro

hey guys perhaps some one can answer this for me. I got a Jr xs3(non pro) and i was wondering if i up grade will the rs300 stock receiver work. JR has replaced the stock 1 with a rs310, it supposed to be lighter and so forth, but will it still work with the older stuff. Are they interchangeable

Both JR synthesized receivers are interchangable.

I just got one yesterday, I am trying to sell my aggressor crx and could not wait.
The first thing that sold me was how comfortable it felt to hold. The hand grip is a nice touch.
All my friends have been hounding me to get off the 27 band so naturally I wanted something synthesized.
I have heard too many bad things about novaks receivers so I figured JR Xs3 pro was the way to go. I have yet to use it but I like it already.
Some of the guys at our local track have the original and I have seen how easy it is to change freqs, push a couple of buttons, no dials or pots on a module.
One complaint is no nimh pack.

It really is comfortable in handling. Its one big advantage is that you can save extra $$$ in buying the crystal sets co'z its a synthesized radio...

Yeah the jr rocks man!! Had mine for about a year and a half, absolutely no problems. Feels good, easy to operate, I wouldnt use any thing else. Been using JR in planes for 10 years, the best.
You wont regret it.

Like I said in my post, I have seen nothing but problems with the novak synthesized receivers, so in that case JR for me.
Now if there was no synthesized systems involved, I would go with the M8.

I just recently purchased a JR XS3 Pro and i love it. It is my first FM radio so I can't comment on how it compares to other quality radios, but i purchased it because of the feel, weight balance and adjustablity.

Being a girl, i find my fingers used to slip off the trigger when using the brakes on my old Futaba Magnum JR. I used a hitec lynx for a while and it fit fine, but i hated the feel of it. With the XS3 Pro, i could adjust the size of the trigger to fit nicely around my finger. That was pretty much the selling point for me. That and the crystal-less operation and sweet looks.

DId you ever think it could have been the M8 radio and not the XXTRA receiver. I run 4 different XXTRA receivers with a Futaba radio and last year a Lynx 3D and never had any problems. Only time I ever saw any problems was with the M8 radios, so that to me says it has to be in the radio, and most found that when the voltages got low they were having problems and it was the module in the radio, not the receiver.
