Probably because nobody asked them.
What was their reply Brian?Mark
As it was related to me, second hand, it was that there wasn't a problem and that it was just an internet rumour.
Agreed, but I should have clarified my post by saying that they, HH, could have explained why they thought it wasn't a problem
Interesting that JR would decide to produce a system following the other major manufacturers
A big thank you for Pete Christy for clearing up this nonsense about Euro regs and DSM. It was nice to have the situation explained in laymans terms. Well done Pete Phil.
Absolutely, I have just recently returned from holiday and seen Peter's posts - thanks Peter.Incidently I went flying in S Africa and visited a couple of model shops. They have JR DSM2 and DSMJ equipment in use there and had heard no mention of the issues aired in this thread. They were very suprised when I told them JR were dropping DSM2 technology.
JR will continue to manufacture, sell, and support DSM equipment in all markets currently allowed by agreement
And note Mr Takamura's guarded use of the word "currently". Does this perhaps imply impending change?
And thus the seed of doubt is once again planted.
___________________________True, BUT, only if you wish it to be that way. I understand both forms of English and "The man said DSM2 is here to stay."I had so hoped for more from you.
I was being Ironic hence the raised eyes smiley. I was merely outlining that as soon as someone puts the rumour to bed another tries to read beyond the meaning of such statement thus the irony of "planting the seed of doubt"
Pete,Just out of curiosity, what other country (apart from Japan) doesn't allow DSM2 at the 100mW level ? Surely that is where the DSMJ is marketed ?
_________Suggest you read this letter from JR.Hardly dropping DSM2 !To Our Valued JR Customers:During the recent BMFA Nationals, a new JR 7 channel radio system using DMSS was shown by our UK distributor. This system uses a technology that is incompatible with DSM2 in order to meet a market need where DSM2 is not available to JR. Unfortunately, several individuals made statements that JR finds very misleading and require correction.JR remains committed to future development with DSM technologies and to our customers who currently own JR equipment using the DSM standard. JR will continue to manufacture, sell, and support DSM equipment in all markets currently allowed by agreement.

It would seem to me that if you're so commited to DSM2 that this new radio (hate the looks BTW, should have stayed with the conventional layout) should be available in both DSMJ & DSM2.
"WHERE DSM2 IS NOT AVAILABLE TO JR" would include any geographic area where Horizon has been marketing Spektrum to date and not JR as well, in that same area.
CroatiaFrance only allows 100mW between 2400 & 2454 MHzGreecePortugalSpain(taken from the FAI site)
I was going to convert my planes in spain to Spektrum 2.4 this Tuesday coming.
