The knobs and rear sliders should not be overlooked, especially for heli pilots. I didn't realize how great these were until I did a little more research. The gyro gain has a "fine tuning" capability that can be assigned to one of the knobs or sliders. This allows you to adjust the gyro gain in flight, rather than having to land, adjust, take off, test, repeat. This is HUGE as far as I am concerned. I don't think the JR x9503 can even do this (someone correct me if I am wrong).

Of course you can use the pots and sliders for other things, and I hadn't considered panning with aerial photography but that is a great example. The cool thing is that you can assign a knob/slider to anything that gets activated with a switch, which gives you the ability to adjust it as required. The more I use this radio the more I love it!
