The newest transmitter offered by Futaba Corporation is the 12Z. It is the replacement for the recently discontinued, tried-and-true 9Z, which has been the standard for competition pilots flying Futaba systems for a long time.
The JR XP7202 seven-channel computer radio system is the newest release from JR. When I think about a seven-channel system, I normally envision a fairly basic sport system. However, the XP7202 is far from it. This is a fully synthesized system (transmitter and receiver).
The Horizon Hobby/JR promotional material released on this new XP9303 uses the phrase “End of Pro-Class Envy.” In other words, you can have one of the most “feature”-packed systems or just the transmitter at an affordable price.
The 10 model memory positions and the ability to name each model, a choice of PCM or FM, and an easy-to-use menu system make the JR XP6102 RC system very special. It is well suited to the RC sport flier and even the RC beginner, and the system prices make it affordable.

Hitec has developed a three-channel RC system can provide the beginner with an excellent starting point. These systems are usually the most simple to operate, they provide more than enough control functions, and the overall cost is held to a minimum.
