MCX transmitter

I bought a MCX Blade copter and want to try using the transmitter for some park flyers. I have successfully got it to bind with an Orange receiver. everything seems good and am ready to test fly the system. What kind of output power does this transmitter have? It seems good enough for close-in park flyers etc. Any comments on this combo?

Well, since nobody could give me an answer about the range of this transmitter, I tried it myself. I actually got over 400feet on the ground with the satellite receiver plugged into the Orange 6 channel receiver. It's probably working alot farther than the 400 feet I walked away from it with the Tx, but that's as far as I could see a surface moving.

So from this test, I'd say it will work perfectly. The Tx has dual rates, servo reversing, but nothing else, just a good basic light weight and compact Tx for park flyers. Just what I was hoping for!!

That is actually good to know and good of you to post results. You should push the range and see actually how far you can get. Use a helper and cell phones to communicate.
