Switch Cover No Model memory (but at the price who cares) V. Tai mixing would be good but can be added using on board unit. . .
Overall:
A good unit which we have been using several of for some months. . . Range much better than quoted and binds to Extra Receivers Easily.

Strengths:
Build seems very good, range is terrific, feels good in hand. . . .
Weaknesses:
No Tx mixing at all so no elevons etc without adding an on-board mixer. The swithc cover is weak and poorly thought out, but then most others leave them open to elements anyway!. . .
Overall:
For a simple no frills unit, it's remarkable well made and nice to use, the issue is, does it do what you need with no model memory, dual rates, EPA or mixing? Takes you back to the 70's but not really a bad thing, just we have got lazy-higher expectetions now!! If it does what you want, buy now, it's a good 'un!. . . .
