Why are you linking to a JR XG11 transmitter in a FrSky thread?

Because I just saw that and people have mentioned the buttons and touch screens on transmitters and I know they also like to check out things when they come up. You know it's okay to look at something else or briefly change subjects. Well at least this is how I sometimes see things I haven't heard of or seen before. I'm not suggesting we should change the subject or trying to get you to buy anything. I think we're old enough to know what we like and don't like.

No, the actual day is the 10th Feb. The 8-9th are for them to get back to their home towns. Have you seen the new year holidays rush in China before? It's people pack like sardines in the trains, with even some of them on TOP of the train...yeah, on the roof of the train.

I am celebrating the CNY too, as I am Chinese, but not in China.

That Battle Start Gallactic radio actually has a nice feel in your hands, and a unique location for the "side sliders". The sliders are actually on the back where your fingers are. I rather liked that feel of the thing. They are darn ugly though.

Probably not going to be selling there, rather going to be there to show off the new gear and explain RSSI and other good things to folks.

Never been to this show, but it looks like a lot of sales do go on there. It is a logistics nightmare for me to get products there, and manage selling and presenting at the same time. I think properly explaining the benefits of FrSky to folks might be time better spent..?

We might have a FrSky beginner package we could sell. Module and receiver for a nice price... Thoughts?

I don't think the XG11 has a touch screen. The description of the 'Touch Select System for switch selection' is far from clear, but there is no mention of a touch screen.

Good idea. Maybe a coupon for a discount or free shipping off the website?

Always hard to know what and how much to bring to a show.

Good choice Wayne...Maybe sell a few items. It can be hell for vendors when the crowds come in. (But then I haven't been there in a few years)

The first thing I thought is that it looks like some sort of evil robot on Doctor Who.
