I was talking about TFR8 receivers, the case is a true "made in china" CRAP product and you know it. Wonder if they have ever seen a Futaba receiver....
since the price was $39 and now they are $49 at least they should sell something improved. fortunately I got them for free but right now I will buy the new S-FHSS receivers for the same cost.

I'm not sure what you are saying about the pricing on the TFR8 though.. We sell them for $33

Ahhhhhhhhh who cares about the box. What matter is the inside. In fact I love my box on my 8ch receiver. And seriously China stuff sucks? Every thing from spoons to most of our electronic are Chinese oh including our tennis and clothes. Frsky is a high quality company. Get use to and give many thanks to Frsky for providing us their product. Orange rx people love'em, Frsky compatible dsm2 receiver people like it, Futaba FASST compatible receiver people like'em. Who cares about the box. Frsky prices is so great. I'm happy with'em. No more paying more for Futaba brand receivers.

Dear FrSky Users
I just registered in RC Group and interested in the new FrSky radio.
I just upgraded all my radio gears from Optima Rx on JR Tx. It is really great telemetry Rx/Tx, which I got from the prompt and reliable Aloft. I am very much interested in the future Radio from FrSky, who is reasonable, advanced and open-mind company. I hope FrSky is successful in the RC society.
Many are disscussing on the LCD display, but I'd like to point out the size of LCD display. Renatoa posted the size of LCD, as 212*64 LED back-light LCD. Comparing with FrSky FLD-02-LCD which has 128*64 resolution and by estimating from the photo, it looks like 2.5cm*5 cm size. Then the 212*64 LCD will be 2.5 cm*8.3 cm size only. It is quiet small pannel, if my estimation is right. I wish to have the bigger LCD pannel for telemetry data, I will pay more for that.
Regards

There could be different pixel sizes, who say it should be same pixel size as FLD-02 ?
Why not compare with DHT-U, having same resolution as FLD-02, but bigger ?
My guess, it is a bit bigger than your estimation, about 10x3cm.

Any preliminary picture would be worth more than 1000 words.
Just to see whether I should look forward or forget..
As for me, LCD display will be very important point to consider. Well and sliders that are missing in 9x.

Anyway, 9x, with PPMX and the whole telemetry support, is still here. And even Gruvin9x Custom board, with ATMega2560 and some advances like rotary encoders and so on (but only the board cost double than whole 9x) ..
So, You can have anything You wish with FrSky module - already.
- but still ony the same 9x small LCD, that is why LCD is here the point of interrest IMHO
.
Well, did You notice that Aurora9 has the same Atmega2560 as Gruvin custom board? I am just curious whether the ER9x will appear ported there, once.. That display is big enough, just at the wrong place (bottom).

Well I hope Frsky create a nice case that beats the Turnigy 9x-r. Keep in mind this pic is not the final product of the face of it. I got this from Hobby King face book.

looks ugly to me
mix of futaba 6ex+ flysky 9x

the plastic handle is just a bad idea, probably a handle + antenna,
imo they should had ask to people first, they would put sliders and fix some things.

lets wait to see the frsky bet... looks more promising

I never had issue with Transmitter with plastic handles. I thought the top was a screen like for telemetry. I need glasses.
