Default Just maybe ...

My memory is a little fuzzy, but I think that model was sold as the XP-622 in the USA. Try this: http://www.horizonhobby.com/shared/t...212-manual.pdf

Could this be a APEX? Wow that's old.

Post a model # (or a description) and I'll see what I can find for yuo.

I also have that radio... but I can't remember where I put the manual. The radio is a JR MAX 6 Comp ... label Circus Hobbies Inc. on back right? It is a first generation computer transmitter that stored one model. It is a good old radio by the way.

Texan,
Hi! I know you don't have the manual, but do you have some sort of step/checklist you use with yours? I'm able to use three channels (motor, rudder, elevator )on a small electric glider--it does seem to be a great transmitter.

Idoxlr8 & toaster,

I found the manual! Would you believe that it was in the original box up in the attic. By the way, the sales price was $304.00 with PCM receiver. I can scan the manual in MS WORD but it will take a little time. However, If you have a specific question, I can look it up.


One impotrant thing:

What is the model number? You can find it at the lower right hand corner of the face plate ... It should be either (NET-W126FZ) or (NET-W126HZ). The FZ unit is for Planes and the HZ unit is for Helis.

TX,
Thank you! The model # is W126FZ. Tell me if the preparation of the word document might be too daunting--I have just received an email from Horizon Hobby tech support--they may be able to get me a manual.

Hi Seth,

My scanner did not like sending the text to WORD. However, I will try to scan the images and create a PDF file. Please allow a week for the entire process. Basically I have to scan each page and burn it to CD, then give it to my friend for conversion to PDF. Please let me know if you are able to get a manual from Horizon. Circus Hobbies was the JR distributer when this radio was on the market... probably mid to late 80's.

Hi TX,
Thanks for the quick reply. I sent the model # to Horizon today; they'll probably take a few days to see if they have the manual. Why don't you wait before going to all that work--I've got the transmitter in working (if incomplete) order now--much smoother than my jr 400 radio!
(I was able to read the scanned pages easily, if we have to go that way).
I'll email you either way. toaster (arlow2@msn.com)

Ok folks,

Click on the GALLERY button below to view the JR MAX programming flowchart. It should help you from getting lost in those scrolling menus. Double click the image for full size!

Please contact me at arlow2@msn.com

TX,
Patience is rewarded. Horizon hobby was able to get a manual for the jr max radio and they are sending it to me.
Thanks for the help and encouragement. I used the radio today for a 19 minute flight with my Prima electric motor glider (2 minute motor run). It's a great radio.

Hey Toaster,

That's good news. Horizon went above and beyond on this one. As I mentioned, that is a pre-Horizon Hobbies JR radio system. Good luck with it.

Default Why aren't the manuals online?

Greetings,

I'm glad it worked out for you and that they are sending you a manual. That really is above and beyond these days.

I recently picked up one of these transmitters and what I don't understand is why they don't have the manuals available for download? If they were to post them on their site in pdf format I can only imagine the time it would save them (and us!).


L8r,

Default Max Computer NET-W26HZ

Hey thank goodness I came across this thread.

I just bought a concept 30 and a Max Computer NET-W126HZ with a JR tag on it.
Distributed by Circus Hobbies.

I talked to a local RC place they said the controller is Illegal now?
Because of silver and or gold band stickers?

Can someone please help here?
I want to be able to fly this, as its an Ebay special I thought it would be good to learn on. Now I heard I can't even fly it

Also there is a 9-Volt battery in the back, the back battery cover is missing. Is there supposed to be a battery pack in there as well?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Throw me an email if you'd prefer.
drice@amherst1.com

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The battery cover probably had a gold sticker... mine does. Gold stickers were necessary back in the day of these xmitters to separate narrow band from non narrow band models. I believe that all of the MAX6 series radios were gold sticker units. Gold sticker (narrow band) units are OK to fly. However, please try to find out if your radio had a gold sticker on the battery cover if possible.

The radio uses a standard 8 cell NiCd square transmitter pack.

I lost the battery cover though, thats one of the problems.
On the back, above where the battery cover would go there is a round silver sticker has 72.390MHZ on it.

Is that the sticker? If it IS a non-gold do I have to buy a new radio?


Thanks in advance for any help!

That is not the sticker that certifies the transmitter as narrow band. The gold AMA sticker was on the battery cover.

Default Max 6 mixing

I have one of these radios too, and like most others, havegone looking for the manual but it's misplaced. I am setting up the radio on a flying wing-type electric, and I need to know how to set up V-tail mixing on the radio. It isn't real intuitive.

TIA.

Rick

The radio does not have v-tail mixing capability. Only one standard mix is available. You will need to use a separate v-tail mixing module such as the GWS, Wattage, or Graupner units.

All 72 mHz JR Max radios were narrow band from manufacture. Period. JR "went narrow" ahead of time. I believe this was at "Ask Danny" recently.
