Strengths:
6K is replacement for the 6J and now has 8 channels. Very good value and nicely made. . .
Weaknesses:
Usual Futaba programming restrictions on lower end radios. Big negative for a beginner radio is making the non-assignable buddy switch on the top right of the transmitter rather than the usual top left, will upset many instructors. . .
Overall:
Good value set, but check if you are a beginner if your instructor is OK with trainer switch on righthand side. . . .

Strengths:
Intuitive menus. Great feel in the hands. A lot of features for a six channel radio. Proportional flaps channel via rotary switch.
Weaknesses:
No ability to copy settings from one model memory to another. . . .
Overall:
I love it. Some say that having to buy rechargeable batteries separately is a negative, but I'm perfectly happy with dry cells: they last 100 flights, and in many ways are more convenient than having to charge the Tx battery every day. . .
