Happy A9 user

I'm a ex JR9303 (9XII in Oz) user and still use a DX6i for my indoor models. However I changed over to a A9 earlier this year after being impressed with a friends radio.

I got to say in my several years of RC (I started when I was 14) it has without doubt been the easiest radio to program and use that I have ever owned.

I've also been very impressed with the telemetry features and have set one glider up with the sensor pack and gps. The easy cockpit view (only speed and altitude displayed in big letters) has made thermaling a scale glider relatively easy!

But as you probably know, all the Optima receivers are able to provide main lipo voltage via telemetry through the SPC port. Very handy.

Also another deciding factor for me would be the price of the genuine Hitec receivers compared to Spektrum. I can pick up 7ch Optima's for under $60 from the USA posted to Australia!
