(continued from previous page)

SWITCH SELECTION
Several options are available for the dualrate, landing-gear and flap switches. The aileron and elevator dual rates can be programmed to be activated with their own switches with "Individ," or the aileron, elevator and rudder rates can be combined so you can turn them all on using one of four switches or rockers. The Flap and Gear channels can also be programmed to use one of four switches. To allow the Gear channel to be used as a slave channel for mixing, it can be set to "Inhibit" so that none of the switches can activate it.

 

Features: 6 channels; 8-character model naming; selectable for PCM and standard FM modulations; selectable switch locations; trainer and pilot link systems; subtrim adjustment; travel adjustment; servoreversing; dual rate/expo for aileron, elevator and rudder; digital trims; throttle-cut system; fail-safe system (only in PCM mode); servo-travel screen; model copy; ergonomic case with soft-rubber side panels; adjustable stick length; 10-model memory; programming for aircraft and helicopter; 5-year lithium battery; Direct Servo Connect (DSC), large LCD screen.

Airplane mixing: flaperon, elevon and V-tail; flap system with elevator trim; elevator-to-flap; aileron-to-rudder; 4 separate programmable mixes.

Heli mixing: 5-point throttle and pitchcurve adjustment; normal and stunt curve adjustment; revo mixing; two separate programmable mixes and CCPM swashplate mix for 3-servo, 90-degree mix; 3-servo, 120-degree mix; 2-servo, 180-degree mix variations.

 


THROTTLE CUT
This function assigns the throttle-cut point with the push of a button. With this feature, you are able to leave your throttle-trim setting at the best idle position and then use the button to close the throttle completely to kill the engine. You can inhibit this function or select the cut point from -32 to -128 percent.


SERVO-TRAVEL DISPLAY
Borrowed from the popular JR 8103, this display gives a graphic representation of servo travel, centering, trim and direction of travel in a six-line display. This screen is helpful when you try various mix adjustments and offers a quick way to get set up and in the proper range.

Top left: when you turn the radio on, the main information display shows the model number, model type and name, the battery voltage, the modulation type, the internal "radio on" timer and a graphic display of the rudder, throttle, elevator and aileron digital trim positions.

Top right: when you switch to the Function mode (by simultaneously pressing both the Down and Select keys), one of 11 function screens is displayed. Here, the Dual Rate/Expo screen shows the settings for the aileron channel. Note the graphic exponential display to the right.

Lower left: the Fail-Safe/Hold function screen is very easy to understand. With the function activated, you can set the assigned channels (throttle, rudder, elevator, flaps and ailerons) to hold their last positions (HLD), or you can adjust each one for a specified servo position. The screen shows that all the channels are on servo hold except for throttle. The linear graphic display indicates a specified throttle servo setting.

Lower right: with its moving arrowhead indicators, the Servo Travel screen is a helpful way to verify the transmitter's stick movements. It can also be used for visual confirmation that your mixing functions are properly assigned without your having to turn on your aircraft.

DIRECT SERVO CONNECTOR
With this feature, you can operate servos directly from the transmitter without turning it on. This is especially useful at events to make programming changes without causing frequency conflicts.


PCM FAIL-SAFE
Another useful feature is the transmitter's Fail-Safe/Hold function. Active only in the PCM modulation setting, this function allows the servos to hold their positions if the transmitter signal is lost or to default to a predetermined setting. All six channels can be set, and the display makes adjusting the servo positions very easy. First you activate the various channels with the Select key, and then you use the control sticks to position the servos. When you have the controls where you want them, simply press the Clear button, and the positions are set. Quick and simple!

JR has always had a reputation for making great radio gear, and the XP6102 continues this tradition. Once you've tried it, you'll wonder why all 6-channel radios don't have the same great features. It's sure to become a very popular choice among RC pilots, regardless of what they fly!
