Seems backwards, or at minimum they should both have the lexan case.
Be curious to know what's actually different that makes the Minima S shorter range.
They never show the antennas in the photos.
Is it a different chip? Either way find it hard to believe the manufacturing cost is that different.

The only unit with a Lexan case is the Optima 6 lite.
An unplanned "special" of a standard Optima 6. This in response to the many requests after the
Optima 6, 7 & 8 were released for a "Lite" unit pending release of the Minima.

The 7 & 9 can also be lightened in a similar manner but surely not necessary in the planes they will be used in.
