Anyone used this Walkera 4ch 2.4GHz radio?

Has anyone used this Walkera 4-channel 2.4GHz radio? It's intended for helicopters, obviously, but can it be used for fixed-wing model planes? Price is certainly right.

I notice that on the LCD in the graphic in the ad, it lists controls called ELEV and AIL and THRO and something that looks like RUDD. That sounds fixed-wing-ish to me.

Anybody know if it's a "full-range" radio? I've heard that some heli radios only transmit out to a hundred feet from the transmitter or so. In the ad for this transmitter, it says its output is 10mW. Is that full-range for a 2.4GHz?

See attached picture.

Should be fine to fly a basic Walkera indoor heli. Would be prudent to check if compatible receivers are still current and availlable!

Can it work with the basic 6-ch 2.4GHz receiver that FlySky has been selling with its 6ch and 4ch 2.4GHz transmitters? I have lots of them.

Virtually all 2.4Ghz systems are brand specific and some have different versions which are not compatible within the same brand. Current FlySky Rx works with many re-branded FlySky transmitters the cheal HK 4 channels just cost a bit more than the Walkera and is FlySky as well as the HK 6 channels and the Turnigy 9X:
