They are good radios, but very expensive. And they are exclusive to DSM2/X - nothing else.
Walkera sure is not perfect. But they are also innovative. IMHO, some of their models best Blade's. And their radios, I think, are nicer than the Spektrums. I am interested in a getting a Devo 8s or a Devo 7e, flashing it with DeviationX firmware, and perhaps add a Flysky module to fly everything on the planet. I don't think even the $1200 DX18 could come close to doing that. Am I alone in this?
So, what Walkera model/Tx did you toss into the trash?
I'm not sure the Walkera stuff can do DSM (edit, looks like they can!)? If it accepts the JR style modules, then maybe it can. Also as I mentioned a few threads back, the Turnigy 9x/9xr are also good options if you are not afraid of opening them up and doing a little reflashing to er9x or open9x.
