    Correct, hence why the new Pro Spektrum system reduces that "lag". And why some pro's havent switched over.

    I didnt notice any difference between the Spektrum and PCM/PPM, it felt the same, but there is a difference between the HRS and standard Spektrum
  • i recently made a switch to specktrum and as far as response time i dont feel any slowdown at all , i know the first batch of spectrum system had some issues with slow response time but it has been worked out, i am really happy with specktrum

  • Quote: DO you guys use exponentia rate for your TH? I use + exp for the steerin. I'm just not sure what for throtle.
    I have a Graupner/JR XS-6, which is a synth Tx and Rx.
    Good price and no crystals.

    I use negative exponentional rate for steering.
    Then I can make tiny adjustments on the straight without going from one side to the other.
    I keep the throttle lineair.

    i see... so that's why KO is not planning on making spektrum like modules

    The only problem , how long will we be holding off. Could be a year before it comes out. BTW the new futaba spektrum PRO HRS unit is now available. .2 latency instead of the .5 added.

    I dont really notice anything either. But it is there. An extra step in the chain of response.

    With the new pro spektrums @ .2 you shouldnt notice much. But @ .5 you can.
  • the Futaba HRS Spektrum is at 2ms and the pro systems are at 3ms
  • I use a Futaba 3PK and got spektrum a couple weeks later, it makes life just so much more simple. I really like being able to turn my radio on in the pits. I'm split between Futaba and KO servos.

    Dad uses a DX3, its nice but it lacks features.
  • guys,

    does anybody who have a spektrum exerienced a slight glitch? or is it really 100% glitchless
  • In theory they shouldnt , but some had technical difficulties so they glitched quite a bit. You could send them in they would apply fixes. The latest version should be truly glitchless. But otherwise it is a glitchless system. I have the old version and I dont think Ive ever experienced a glitch.

    But yeah , eletrical motor noise and metal to metal noise is a thing of the past with these.
