Someone mailed you these pages:
http://www.microtechnics.eu/detail.p...=X9D&langue=en

http://www.microtechnics.eu/detail.p...X12D&langue=en

http://www.microtechnics.eu/detail.p...X16D&langue=en

It's nothing official. It's just unofficial unconfirmed information collected from discussion forum (99 % from this one).

Spektrum-Jaguar, flashy but plenty of issues/flaws...you get a christmas card from service every year.
Ditto. I bought a 2010 Kia Forte. The looks got me into the showroom, test drive convinced me it was not just a piece of crap, and price got me to buy it. It's far and away the best car I've ever owned. I can't believe the style and features I got for what I paid. 2.1/2 years now and it has not been in the shop a single time. Just oil changes. That's even better than my Subaru WRX was. (burnt LED tail light module, no big deal). Way better than all the Ford's I've had.

I have one question, I am looking at the X12D and noticed the buttons seem to be rather close to the edge of the radio.

I wonder if they will be hit if the radio is held in one hand or if there is a way to lock the buttons off until turned on(maybe a multibutton press or something.

I fly DLGs and would really hate to be pressing buttons while launching a plane (see avatar).

Then again, I do not hit the buttons on the Jr 9303 sop maybe it won't be a problem.

OK, not someone, they send you their pages as emails They don't know the prices yet, because nobody knows them (nobody outside FrSky). Once FrSky tells the prices to distributors, Renato or Wayne will share them with us, I believe

If that "not exactly" was answer to "unofficial unconfirmed", then don't miss this line they have on those pages: "These technical specifications can be changed without notice during development and production stages." They really don't know anything, they just collected all unofficial informations available and put them to one page/email.

Microtechnics are a bit too quick at picking infos on forums and posting them on their shop as if they were official.

Some of the info on these pages are preliminary data from the first post of this thread, of which some is now known wrong. Some is still pure speculation, and of course some info is correct.The bit about the compatible modules is actually a copy/paste of a post I made in a different context...

FrSky have announced they would add a page on their website in the next few days, if you want reliable info just wait for that.

And of course there's the fact that a shiny new RCG account was used to paste these "news" items

We feel pressure to have a similar teaser page at Aloft Hobbies, but since we do not know much more than has been stated here, I have avoided doing so. Until I have some pricing and a reliable ship date, I'm not too eager to put anything up.

With that said, I have put together an ad that will run in the March AMA magazine that features the new FrSky radio, but that is due to print deadlines and a need to draw people to our display at the Toledo show. The ad summarizes the information that FrSky has given to us in this thread, so nothing new.

Wayne just for future ads you should include model memory's, me personally it is the first thing I want to know and what put me off a lot of radios that have just 8 it is a big selling point over other others.
