Strengths:
The Operating System - Truly programable in the true sense of the word - The hardware is on par with the major brands. . . .
Weaknesses:
Steep, very steep learning curve to get to grips, I almost gave up then it clicks from that point on I havent even begin to find its limits. . . .
Overall:
Hardware - on par with Spektrum, though I prefer the FrSky ariels on the RX. . . .

MattyB  |  Dec 26, 2014

Strengths:
Mixing flexibility and functionality as good or better than £1k+ sets; RF reliability with integrated telemetry; quality of gimbals; price (inc RX prices); voice capability makes telemetry really useful. . . .
Weaknesses:
Dated ergonomics (some switch crowding at the top of the TX); some switches feel cheap; "too cheap" for some to believe it's any good!. . . .
Overall:
These are breeding like wildfire in clubs around me, and with good reason; nothing else comes remotely close in functionality and flexibility for the money. RF reliability is stellar with very low brownout voltages, telemetry is nicely integrated and very affordable, and the open source software is regularly improved and updated by a community who listen to and meet new requirements as they come along. Yes the programming will not be easy at first for those coming from Asian style radios, but once grasped it's incredibly logical and outstandingly flexible; the limit is really your own imagination. The big brands should be worried!.

Fatscoleymo  |  May 10, 2014

Strengths:
Everything. So flexible and logical once the initial differences to JR, Futaba etc have absorbed. After the 1st plane programmed it becomes 2nd nature. The custom switches and custom functions are where it really comes to life! Anything is possible.
Weaknesses:
?????????????????????????????????????????. None that I've found yet. . .
Overall:
JUST GET ONE!!!!!! It really is that good. £25 for a 16 channel full telemetry rx. Like many I thought I didn't need it, but rx voltage and RSSI (rx signal strength) with audio warnings give me that 'warm fuzzy feeling' when. .
