Spektrum continue to push the boundaries of RC technology with the latest add-on for all DSM2 2.4 users. As we have continued to use 2.4 technology for the past 4 years, we have found out things we never thought possible. Only a few years ago we found ourselves at large events with 6 or 7 flight lines and checking transmitters out of an impound. Today impounds are gone. Some flight lines now see more than 35 pilots flying at one time, and with more and more 2.4 radios turned on in the pits with modelers working out any bugs they have with their models.

The new mega events like IRCHA, Joe Nall and SEFF have brought a new frequency-agile protocol to life for any Spektrum or JR 2.4 users. This new protocol named DSMX delivers an even stronger signal to our end user. An add-on for the more traveling modeler, we discuss with Chris Huhn exactly what this is all about. This new protocol is something that is built for a select few who travel outbound to these larger events and may not be necessary for our regular users of Spektrum and JR 2.4 radio systems. So stop in and see what you think. Whether you continue to use the DSM2 or the newer DSMX technology, you will want to know what is available for now and the future.
