a FrSky guy told in a chat covnersation to an user (Romolo) its going to be around 95$
maybe this price is for the stand alone unit, and around 150$ for the pack with frsky module? who knows...

This is a cut and paste from a chat I had with a guy of frsky:

the radio is 12-14 channel
similar with JR, entry level, easy to operation
the firmware platform with base on the er9x or similar
sd card saving
beeping and voice warning
possible to upgrade
display the telemetry data
only PPM
model match
we control the retail price at about 95

Maybe dealer price, I doubt this will be street price, even without receiver.
There will be no module, it comes with embedded RF, the module case will be empty for a second RF systems, like LR or other alternate.
See first post specs, those are quite official, not from a guy...

Yes, LR is long range, most probably in 433MHz band.

For $120 you can't get even a 9X in this moment !!!
Yes, I don't joke ! Nobody didn't noticed the last moves at HK ?
Yesterday they launched the moduleless 9X, at $50 + 30 shipping = $80.
From my sources I can say there will be never a 9X sold at HK as complete system with Flysky RF system !
So, for the above radio, you must add $50 for a Frsky system, and you have a $130 radio, featuring the hardware you know, not so stellar.
I am sure X12D will be in other galaxy, so hoping for anything under $150 for retail price is wishful thinking.

Do you mean $150 + $30 shipping? It's a really good price, I am assuming that the HW quality (especially the sticks) will be better than the 9x!

150$ with or without any module? we are talking about the price without the shipping cost here...
