Re: Looking for a new radio

First of all, you're trying to start a war aren't you? lol. I'll try not to put too much opinion in here.

They look like they're both great transmitters and have most of the same features. Spektrum is more popular by far and right in there with BNF aircraft. The 11x comes with DSMx, which is promisingly secure like FASST. There is a significant price difference. The 11x is 50% more than the 8FGS.

Maybe I'm wrong, but my understanding is the 8FG Super will transmit 14 channels whether to an S.Bus Rx or not. The included S.Bus Rx will receive any number of channels transmitted to a limit of 18.

You "should" be able to use take full advantage of a R6014 if you chose to. You can definitely use most 6, 7, 8 ch FASST non-S.Bus receivers.

Re: Looking for a new radio

The JR 11X is dsmx and will therefore work with both dsm2 and dsmx receivers.

Both are very nice radios, it comes down to feel imo. Go to the hobby shop and see how each feels.
