Very nice transmitter, a bit pricey
on January 3, 2014
I'm happy with the ease of use of this transmitter and its many features. Before dropping 400+ dollars on a similar transmitter again, I would perhaps shop around for a Futaba or JR that offered the same features for a lower price. I did have one issue connecting the Rx with a T-Rex ESC, and the customer support person at Horizon Hobbies was completely useless in helping me figure out the issue. He incorrectly diagnosed the Rx was defective, and suggested I sent it to Horizon at my expense and wait two to three weeks as it was being repaired and shipped back. As I later found, the Rx could not be bound to the radio when the power was routed through the ESC. Luckily I found advice on an RC forum and connected a battery directly to the Rx to bind it.
In sum, this is a very good transmitter that has worked flawlessly for about 8 months. It was unfortunate that I had such a bad experience with Horizon customer service, which is why i may shop around for an alternative brand Tx next time i'm in the market.
