I like my "old" Dx9 better. My new Dx6 gets hot while flying in the Ct Sun. This will be a Hot Tx
in the Sun.

I've been flying a black DX18 for a long time, since before you could get production ones. It doesn't have a problem with heat. It's got the same guts as the DX6 and DX9. Heat is not an issue.

The price isn't bad. I don't know what people expect. It comes with a $150 reciever and an insanely nice case. So, you're basically getting the case for free. How is that a bad deal?

I'm in love with this thing, but I really don't NEED it.

I do find my DX6 gets warmer than my other transmitters but never to the point for concern.

We have different definition of "good" and the price is only "whack" if they don't sell any BUT they will. Just like the QQ you are not only getting a Tx but getting a kit/combo with Rx and Case with similar color scheme.

The cool thing about this is that you don't have to buy one if you don't want to.

+1. Or buy it, sell the rx for ~$135 (no one's gonna pay full price) and you basically get the case for $15.

That's exciting. I was afraid it might be out a full month or so. Do you know if Horizon Hobby will have stock before other hobby shops or do they all get some amount of allocation at about the same time?
