Yep i like the black/gold one as well, like they've done away with the buttons and got a scroller, any ideas of price ?

Horus has a scroller, integrated on the right with some buttons round it. This 10 does not have the gimbal etc joystick left side so they had space, and there have been Horus wheel failures (my impression being from the heavy handed as my two are fine!) even resulting in people making their own 3D print wheels.

Taranis has increasingly got stick for looking "old fashioned" and feeling "light and cheap". Personally I do not care one fig what a Tx looks like, its how it feels and operates, and long sessions with Horus at 1.3kg over the much lighter and smaller Taranis inc carrying it backpack to remote slope sites means I retain and am greatly thankful for the Taranis AS IS!!!!!

I have only just got my Taranis and they bring this one out sad I don't mind the old case but coming from Spektrum I miss the none slip rubber bits on the back for your fingers.

Trebor - I put some strips of the hook side of self-adhesive Velcro down the back of my Taranis where my fingers go and its rough surface gives me a very good non-slip grip.

I hold the sticks between forefinger and thumb and wrapped some Velcro around the sticks. Again, it gives me a very good grip on the sticks and I find I don't need to grip the sticks so tightly.

That's a good idea, I don't get on with a neck strap so it will fall a long way if dropped yes

Let's just hope that it's got an easily replaceable battery like my Taranis, not one like my Horus and hope too that the battery lasts a lot longer than that of the Horus!

? Mine is good for a couple of days flying on the standard battery. The only issues I've seen reported have been from those using 'Dragonlink' modules for long periods.

I must admit that I re-charge the Horus before every flying day but then it does depend upon how many flights I get In a day!

I'm following this with interest.

According to THIS, it has selectable internal AND external aerials!

 

Edit - according to THIS, it had detachable exterior and TWO internal aerials!

I have no particular preference, but the first few posts in this thread were about the virtues of internal / external aerials.

Looks like this model gives you the choice, which I do like.

Yes - I've fancied a Taranis from the first time I played with one.

2 things put me off a bit, but both have been addressed by this. Gimbal quality and menu buttons.

Well it looks like the X10 and X10S are on the horizon.

T9 showing .

£312.00 for the X10

£366.00 for the X10S in Carbon.

Not sure about delivery dates but I suspect I have my Christmas present sorted...

Some of the early reviews coming back on RCG, it is looking good. Looks OK for a spare in case my Horus goes wrong if the FrOS models are transferable yes

I know what it looks like, but this is not the forum to be explicit. devil

Can I wade in to this Antenna debate, my Horus is using open TX( luv it) when I change from internal antenna to use external it appears both internal and external are in use . Is this correct ? I know on FR firmware it is one or the other. Also I have just got a RB10 to use with 2 X8R receivers and dual 6V Ni Mh batteries. The instructions are highly contradictory to me as to where the batteries are connected. You tube added to head ache. Any one using one please? Thanks all.

You are correct in your assumption that both antenna are used when you select internal.

As to the RB10, I will find out when mine arrives from Kong Kong.laugh
