All he said was it would be spectrum-compatible. Will also include very new technology but that was all he was allowed to say.

I dont know about synth or crystals.

Anyone heard anything else??

That could explain why Horizon has been 'out of stock'.

I ordered an R1 from the LHS and we were speculating that this may be why they don't have any to sell.

Tibit from one of the developers of the Spektrum:

"JR is working on a version on XS3 with the Spektrum. Theyr'e tesing it now but it'll probably be a while until it comes out"

That explains why my hobby shop is selling the R1 pcms at fm prices. I think i'll hold off until May. Anyone got spy shots yet?

I talked with someone from JR/Horizon and they said it will be the same thing as the KO Helios but under the JR name....kind of like the JR R-756 and the Old KO EX-10 they were both the same radio. I dont know if this is the plan still.

I got a call from one of the local hobby shops. Their Horizon rep just called.... the R1 is officially discontinued. No official word on the replacement.

I am betting that it will be the R2 and module synthesized (we all know that it will handle that Spektrum ....I hope that I spelled that right). I'd love to have more information and especially... a due date.....
