The 11X must be one of the most radically styled transmitters to have appeared. The folks at JR have broken the mould with their stunning new radio system. The sleek design is, to quote the press release, "heavily influenced by Japanese 'Gundam' model robots" and should be in the UK in the first quarter of 2010. The 11X Zero, to give it its full name, has 11 channels, 30 model memories and an SD card slot.

Horizon Hobby have announced the release date for the new Spektrum DX-8 system. The long awaited higher-end radio should arrive some time in August all being well. Boasting a back-lit screen and new programming software designed from the ground up, the 30 model memory system is also the first Spektrum radio to feature telemetry where receiver battery voltage, flight log data and signal quality can be displayed on the Tx screen. External sensors also allow rpm, external voltage and temperature to be displayed on screen in real time.

The respected Jeti Duplex 2. 4GHz system is now available pre-fitted to the Graupner MX-12 and MX-16 transmitters. Duplex has, until now, only been supplied in the form of plug-in transmitter modules but that's set to change with the introduction of these new dedicated transmitters to which the Duplex system is pre-fitted. Jeti have taken the opportunity of re-designing the Jeti Box unit connectors for this exercise so, as you can see, the unit now plugs directly into a socket mounted at the top of the transmitter, the connector itself supporting the Jeti Box.

Visual similarities with the DX6i are there although ergonomically theDX8T is much improved. Quality of the materials seemed very good. Just unveiled at the Nuremburg 2010 trade expo, Horizon Hobby had the long awaited higher end Spektrum radios in the forum of this, the new DX8T and the new DX10T. At the moment they're scheduled to arrive in the summer.

Hitec’s keenly awaited 2. 4GHz debut has finally arrived with modules for the existing transmitters and this range topping, frequency hopping Aurora 9 which offers notable features including a 5. 1” back-lit touch screen for programming – the first consumer radio to do so. With 30 model memories, assignable switches, customisable programming menus, 3 model types, 9 assignable channels, 8 flight conditions, 9 wings types, 5 tail types and a whole host of mixes and menus, it’s going to give the competition something to think about – oh and it has a data telemetry facility too, the receiver sending real-time information that can be viewed onthe transmitter screen.

Thanks go to forum member Pete B for spotting this bulletin about the DX6i transmitter. If you own a DX6i then best check this out. . .

Long awaited, the new M-Link 2. 4GHz systems from Multiplex have just arrived in the UK. The mid-high end Royal Pro radios and modules arrived a few weeks ago and the upgraded 2. 4GHz Cockpit SX (pictured) has just joined them.

We think the clean, fresh styling is very attractive. Ripmax in the UK and Futaba have announced a new radio system in the form of this Field Force 8 (8FG) due to arrive in the UK very soon. Reflecting a clean, fresh styling, the 8-channel system offers eight proportional channels and two switched channels. It's aimed at the upper-level sport flyer as well as the entry- to mid-level competition pilot.

Jeti Duplex radio system users will be pleased to learn that the first batch of MVario sensors has arrived in the UK. They're tiny too, so lack of space shouldn't be anissue when it comes to fitting in a model. The unit is designed to operate with Jeti's Duplex 2. 4GHz system and provides real-time data back to the Jeti Box screen- itself connected to the transmitter module.

Hot on the heels of Bob Sims' Spektrum spreadsheets, Phil Winks has been busy and drawn up excel spreadsheets so that Futaba 6EX users can record their model settings. Click on the link below to download the spreadsheet. Futaba 6EX spreadsheet . .

Bob Sims has created some Excel spreadsheets to record the model set-ups for his Spectrum DX7 and DX6i transmitters. These allow one to keep a record of aeroplane (acro) or helicopter set-ups - very handy and many thanks Bob. Click on the links below to download each spreadsheet. You can email Bob with suggestions or queries - robert.

Well packaged and well made, the usual Jeti quality is here. Jeti, the respected Czech manufacturer has just joined the frequency revolution by launching a 2. 4GHz radio system called 'Duplex'. The companies existing range of receivers and ESCs are held in high regard by modellers, so this new modular R/C system has been eagerly awaited, not least because it offers a number of 'new generation' features not found on existing 2.

It seems like only yesterday that Futaba unveiled a successor to the Field Force 8, yet seven years have passed since the FF9 quickly became something the enthusiastic club or competition flyer wouldnt be seen without. As mid-range radios go, the FF9 set benchmarks in quality and ease of use, this reflected in its longevity. Time moves on though, and the FF9s replacement enters a very different marketplace, one which is occupied by a new competitor and an operating frequency thats revolutionised the way we operate our models. Say hello, then, to the T10, 10C (as they call it in the U.

Multiplex have been busy rolling out their first 2. 4GHz R/C system over the last few months soit's time to take a closer look. The company are keen to stress that this is a 2ndgeneration 2. 4GHz system that includes data telemetry (more on this in a moment).
