Would anyone really trust this receiver? Will this receiver lag your response time?

yup, got the email yesterday that these are on the site for preorder.

I for one, will be buying one to try out.
I have no qualms about obtaining one and getting it in the air.
I'm sure they are going to work out fine, BUT we will see!

The fact that there is now an alternative to the expensive Futaba receivers which shouldn't cost $139 for an 8 channel to begin with is a welcome addition!

China.

I wonder if this will cause Futaba to start bringing their RX prices down where they should be.

Those are the same connection used in Futaba receivers, just standard U.FL plug.

Good point. I'll sit back and see what the results are. It would be nice if it really did bring down the cost of Futaba receivers.
