Sure here is some items I love about the A9....
  • HUGE back lit touch screen - it simply rocks - touch what you want to change - just can't be easier
  • Intuitive programing - never looked at the manual (good as it is not so hot, just like Futaba and Spekky)
  • Smart program items - for example I love that I can adjust both right and left rates or other settings at the same time by touching!
  • Flexibility in channel assignment - and stick/switch can be any channel you want
  • It has the best "feel" in my hands of any system I have used
  • Sliders (but wish they had center detents)
  • Love the favorites folder for commonly used menu functions
  • Dedicated glider programing
  • Solid feel
  • Ultra smooth gimbals
  • Solid switches
  • Affordable receivers - full range telemetry 6 ch RX's are $38
  • Excellent service and support (Like Spekky Andy we have Hitec Mike)
  • Firmware updates to software, modules and RX's

I was very sad when the DX8 didn't have sliders and dedicated glider programming. A big miss in my book.
