I know a guy that services radios, the last 2 planes I heard about from him that went down due to radio failure were both high end models on Futaba......bet those guys are hating Futaba about now.
Some one said lets start at the beginning, and mentioned DSM2, but the beginning is DSM. Have the dx6, no issues, have a dx7 no issues, including 2 boats (yes it works on water) running DSM rx (ar6000). No range problems or glitches etc. on water.
Don't care if anyone hates spekky, and if they have a true problem with it is is their right to dislike it. I aint Pro for any brand radio, but if it aint broke don't fix it, hence why I haven't forked out dough for a new radio I don't need.
just my opinion, love it or hate it
