Customer Reviews

Very Nice Radio Review by New Jersey Nick
Rating
I've had this radio for about a month now and really like it. Programming is straight-forward and intuitive. The "feel" on the sticks is excellent. I've been using this on three different planes all with RX500 Airtronics receiver's - the binding process went smoothly and the transmitter has performed flawlessly on all flights. A handle would be nice but I'm getting used to the "recessed grip" pocket. A nice feature which isn't mentioned in the manual (I couldn't find it) is that is you leave the transmitter in the "ON" position and don't move any stick or switch for about 10 minutes, the transmitter will emit an audible alarm and the display will read "Transmitter SW is on" - this will alert you if you accidentally leave the radio "on" during rest periods or on the way home.

Battery and charger included make it an excellent value. Very easy to program it. Receiver is nice and small with two antennas. I wish it had a handle. (Posted on 6/19/14)
impressive sport radio Review by Pat

with the exception of telemetry, this radio has everything I will ever need, and the programming is far and away the best I have ever used. (Posted on 6/2/14)
perfect ergonomics Review by jonathan

I love this radio so far. It is loaded with features and best of all feels great in the hands. It is the most comfortable radio i have ever used. I also can use it as a buddy box for my daughter with my sd-10g. The sticks are also very smooth and the transmitter looks even better in person than in pictures. I highly recommend this radio to beginners and experienced pilots alike as it has a lot to offer. Thank you airtronics! (Posted on 4/20/14)
