Is it full range or park-flyer?

The Optimas are full range. All they've done is take it out of the hard plastic case, trim it down as much as they could and put shrink wrap on it.

The all important question... Price?, bulk deals?

So is this functionally the same as optima 6, just light?
For park-flyers, should I use this one or Minima?

Fantastic!!! Thanks Hitec!

1/ Is it just the case that's different?
2/ How do the dimensions compare to the standard Optima 6?
3/ What aerial does it have?

Nice!!! So can I be lazy and ask what is the difference in weight from the stock to the lite version? And can we get some Hitec confirmation that this does have battery voltage telemetry? I will certainly have to test a few.

Thanks Mike!!


DOH, I read that a bit too quickly. I see Mike states in his post that it has Battery Telemetry.... DOH!! And I looked up the spec from Tower hobby on the Stock optima 6 15 grams vs 7 grams on the Lite!! Sexy!

Is it going to be the same price as the regular optima 6?

Essentially this is exactly correct, but it's a laminated paper case, not shrinkwrap. It still uses the BODA so you can fly it in anything.

It's only going to be available as a single item for now in USA market but may be available in 3-packs and outside the USA in the near future if the demand is high enough. While the Minima will still be slightly lighter (when it's available) with the case (1g) and without the case (3g,) the advantage to the O6 LITE will be the battery telemetry... not to mention available shortly.

Pricing is $49.99.

I would say it would be sufficient to send it to Germany at least ;-)
