I'll check TX power next time I have access to an RTF TX.
It's probably going to be 50-100mW which will give you about the same range as the DX6i's 200mW on USA power setting.
No that's not correct. Not trying to cause any arguments but it has been confirmed on many of HH's products that use the rtf controller that the max range is 300 feet. I know it's a correct fact as many of us using it while flying their micro plane line have had it drop out on us right at that range level. You can't even compare the rtf transmitter range with the dx6i range. It's not remotely even in the same category. I had my champ drop out many times at around a 300 feet or less range while using the rtf tx, but flew it many, many times so far and high in the sky that it was a spec and took a while to try and even get it back to a place where I could even figure out what direction it was going. It was easily way over 1000 feet and never had it drop out once.
