The Six Channel
with More of Everything
The JR XP642 has taken the
concept of a six channel, sport-class computer radio to the "Nth" degree. With
its added features and enhanced functions, this new radio system has effectively
set new standards for its class.
The 642's enhanced capabilites
are totally functional. They incorporate some of the most desirable and useful
functions available in radio control systems today. Pilots at almost any level
will appreciate the benefits that the XP642 brings to the flying field.
Four Model Memory:
One of the first things to notice about the JR XP642 is its four model memory.
Not only does it allow you to store data for four different helicopters or airplanes,
but it also enables you to name them with a three letter abbreviation so you
can avoid any possible confusion. Give it a name, not a number!
Top-level pilots around the world rely on exponential control to help them control
their aircraft. "Expo" helps smooth out stick control by decreasing the response
around neutral and increasing control authority as the stick is moved away from
center. This way, you can have enough punch for aerobatics, and yet keep things
from being overly sensitive in level flight, without ever having to switch rates!
There are reasons why the pros' planes fly like they're on rails, and one of
those reasons is programmable mixing. This easy-to-use feature allows you to
slave one channel to another, so that manuevers like knife-edge flight can be
sustained and performed precisely. For instance, many fliers experience unwanted
deviations in pitch or roll when using rudder control to fly knife-edge. The
642's Programmable Mixing makes it easy to "dial out" any unwanted pitch or
roll, by assigning a little compensating aileron and/or elevator input to the
rudder channel. This can mean the difference between enjoying a beautiful maneuver,
and "just making it."
More of everything:
The XP642 comes complete with a full set of ball-bearing servos (4 for airplane,
5 for heli), so you're assured of high-precision, long life, and smoothly-operating
linkage. World class S-PCM Modulation is available for the 642, as well as PPM
(FM) and Z-PCM.
For heli pilots, the JR
XP642 is the only six channel computer radio that allows for flight mode programming
for coupling of 5 critical functions. Making the task of transitioning from
hovering to forward flight as easy as possible.
