JR 11X

Horizon Hobby now has the new JR 11X transmitter available for order. It ships with the R921 receiver. If you are looking for the next step up from the JR 9503 then the 11X is worth a look.

We are waiting for more details on the upcoming Spektrum DX8. Obviously if you need more than eight channels the 11X may be a no brainer. The DX-8 has telemetry that provides real-time battery voltage, which could be very useful.

T-Rex 700E

T-Rex 700E

Align now has the T-Rex 700E available for ordering. They have two packages: One with a flybar and one with their new 3G flybarless setup. The 3G Combo package comes with motor, CF main and tail blades, the Align 3G flybarless unit, flybarless head, and four servos. The traditional flybared package only has the motor and tail blades. Neither package ships with an ESC or any batteries. [Note: We reported previously that the packages included a Castle Creations ESC. That is incorrect.]

Flybarless fliers will want to get the Align 3G USB Programmer. No word yet on upgrade options from the flybar to flybarless versions.

See our T-Rex 700E review.
