A more fair comparison would be the Dx10 which has a list price at around $1500 but are sold for around $1100. I would have no problems choosing the DC-16 at $950 over the Dx10. Of course the DC-16 will have to deliver as promised first
Well, the DC-16 is supposed to be a 16 CH TX. DX 8 has only half (=8 CH), DX 10 has 10 CH (I assume). So here will be a significant difference. From all I read so far the new Jeti TX is comparable to the high end TX from Graupner or Futaba. Thus the price. And from all I know the price will be at least comparable to those TX.
Those who want to buy a more low cost TX with less options will have to go for the Graupner MX-12 / MX-16 that Jeti starts to sell with already inbuilt Jeti Duplex.
But I am quite sure that Jeti will bring low cost versions of the new TX with less options / channels and less price.
For me it sounds to be a good idea to start with a fully engineered high end transmitter and then drop options for a low cost variant rather than vice versa.
I am confident that the hand held TX will be better than my MX24s I have now. In that case I go for it!
