Use mine with modules for both 35 and 2. 4 Best of all worlds. Nicer feel than futaba. Roller programmer easier to use than Futaba dial.

Strengths:
I found programming easy. The automatic settings in the pitch and throttle curves is a nice feature. . .
Weaknesses:
Model selection, switch assignment. You can only assign functions to certain switches. New price. Timer option is limited.
Overall:
I bought this radio on recommendation from a F3C pilot. I was a Futaba supporter for 16 years and had the T12FG, so I suppose I was a bit spoilt. was wanting to change to 2. 4 and staying with Futaba would have cost me quite a bit to convert all my models.

Natural to program, quality construction. Well proven software. Lower cost receivers. .
Weaknesses:
Changing models is horrible, not easy to see when switched on, timer only activated by switch. . . .
Overall:
A good quality radio which has the combined the best features from JR and Spektrum. Has the ability to utilise the extensive and inexpensive Spektrum RX range. . .

Strengths:
Thirty model memories. Excellent Rx response. Sticks have a lovely feel. .
Weaknesses:
Poor instructions. The standard PCM9XII manual is supplied with what looks suspiciously like a rushed extra few pages in a separate document. The only way I could work out the basics was to phone the distributors (MacGregor) for advice. On the other hand, the advice was excellent and freely given.
Overall:
I've had one of these for several months and it has the usual quality JR feel to it. Overall, it's a very good radio with an excellent RF link - the supplied 9 channel RD921 Rx is visibly more responsive than a Spektrum AR7000 Rx using standard digital servos. Once the workings have been understood, programming is fairly straightforward. For the original price (I paid £475 for a combo), it was excellent, but the current asking price of nearly £700 is too much.
