Default DX6i

Where is it? Will there be any problems with the rx buried under the wing i.e. in the body of my new MiniMag? In other words does the signal go through foam?

They are supposed to be in the stores later this month. You'll have no problems with using this in a foam airplane.

Cost is "listed" at $180, but there's retailers selling it as cheap as $160.

Is it delayed again? I thought Jan 4th was the new release date. I see all the sites have removed the release date all together and just have "Pre-Order".

I just found it for 179.99!! Not bad!! But, I won't be getting one, I already own a DX6 and a JR 8103. I'll upgrade in a year or two. That leaves more money for more Planes and Heils'!!

A buddy of mine just got one with his Blade 400, and they're very nice (for the money). Runs off 4 AA batts, and got all the way cool heli stuff.....

Another 6 weeks, says one non-LHS I talked to. They have their hands on a few (with the Blade 6) and say that it is a little disappointing. "Feels cheap." Now, they are in the business of selling radios, and the more expensive the better. But they also want to please their customers.

I've had one on order since Oct, but I think I am going to bail and go for the DX7. The JR X9303 will have to wait until I build that 4-engine, tactical nuke-releasing, retract-equipped, B-whatever I saw on the web...Sigh.

Powerlines,

The DX6i can be run off 4 cells instead of 8 because it only use ~5 volts to transmit. The DX7 also only uses ~5 volts to transmit, but uses a internal power transformer to drop it down to 5 volts. 2.4ghz dosn't need as much power to transmit as 72mhz did.

Oh I got to hold and play with a DX6i for a while. WOW it's light, it's comfortable to hold for people who use thumbs. If you use the pintch technique it would get cramped. (i can switch between both methods without problem but prefer thumbs).

I think that I read somewhere that the one that is shipped with the Heli does run off of AA's. The regular DX6i runs on a different battery!!

Mine is powered with 4 AA s . they last a long time and if you go on a trip you don't have to worry about 110 ac to charge em.

I like the AA's too. I have some Nimh rechargeables and a fast charger.
Also carry a new set of alkalines in my flight bag for backup at the field.

Even if I forgot to charge my TX, I would always still be up and flying.
