Question
Are the Minima 6's considered / designed as "Full Range"

Flying my A9 + Optima's (6,7 + 9) primarily in gliders, rock solid, no issues on range and flying large (3M - 4M) gliders at several hundred meters range without issue.

I have Minima's in DLG's and smaller slope planes that dont fly as far away but I have one available and am thinking of using in a new high end molded TD plane that I want to keep as lite as possible. Normal range checks are fine with the Minima's as with the Optima's in every other plane I have

I know I will not have any telemetry but are am after some view from Hittec, are the Minima's a full range RX or are they classified more as a "park Flyer" RX

Any info would be great, thanks in advance
