Jumper T-16

Does anybody (other than the guy who keeps posting the Makerfire links) have any experience with the Jumper T-16? I’d hate to think that I’m an old school snob, I’ve only used Futaba and Spektrum, it seems like it’s too good to be true at less than $250 for a multi protocol/16 channel transmitter. Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Jumper T-16

Don't forget, then you have to purchase your RF module . I believe. Always good to check out where you
have to send it for service .

It looks like that used to be the case, but with the Pro being released it’s now internal, with an additional slot for an external RF module for long range stuff. I’m wondering about quality of gimbals and such. It’s hard to find any BNF micros for indoor whoop season with DSMX protocol, and it seems I’m in the minority of folks using Spektrum.

Here is a good place to start: 400 plus pages ....I think they started this last spring so not that old, really .
Suggestion though. Start at the last page and work backward. Lots of good ideas on what users ran up against and how they fixed them .

A thing I have noticed though is that the bigger the screen , the more power they take and this applies to all brands. Then when you add touch screens there is another jump in power used and some brands can use up to 2 amps , yes 2 amps (2000 ma)when turned on fully.

Can’t actually find anything In there about how the user experience is, just a bunch of fighting about whether it’s “right” to buy cheaper versions of something. I have absolutely no desire to learn how to use the software, think I may just stick with my Spektrum stuff, even though it’s not widely supported in the FPV side of the hobby.

Re: Jumper T-16

I’m hoping for some feedback on the actual build quality. Is it so cheap because it runs Open TX so there’s no R&D costs in the protocol or is it so cheap because it’s built “toy” quality vs. hobby grade.

Re: Jumper T-16

I have one and so far I love it... Wouldn't trust any big expensive models to it but its the solution for BNF and quads.. So much flexibility for receiver choices - I have used spectrum,frsky and flysky and all work well. There is a learning curve with Open TX as they do things a bit differently so expect to spend a bit of time on the first few set-ups.. Does allow for lots of flexibility but does take a bit of reserch and experimentation.

I would not rate the build as "toy" grade - Mid to low hobby grade - Has a nice feel though. much better radio then the older DX6i for comparison.
