What are the ergonomics like on this radio? Does it feel good in the hand? Are the trims and such located so you can use them while driving without looking down?
I'd be comparing it to my DX2s, which I love, I just can't afford to keep buying Spektrum receivers.
I'm getting sick and tired of swapping RX's from boat to boat. For the price of one MR3000 I could buy enough of these ones to cover at least half the fleet.
Plus I'd have a decent radio for letting friends use as I'd keep the Spektrum for sure.
Thanks

I'll let you know when mine finally shows up. Pricing was just too amazing to go any other route for me. For ~$90 shipped I got the TX, 5 RX's, 140oz/in BB servo and 2 3s800mah packs.

From looking at pictures though, I think the trims aren't really usable without looking down:

Ya thats the picture I was looking at as well. It looks like it might be OK once you got used to it and could just run you finger over the buttons.
The 2 channel works great as well, my buddy has 3 of them, everything is under that plastic flap though, impossible to adjust the steering trim while the boat is running!

Mine shipped from California Sept 1st, I'm a little pissed it isn't here by now. Hopefully I have it early this week. I'm planning on using it for my stadium truck, drift car, small bolt and maybe even the motley crew (anyone want a tactic system?).

That'll free up my dx6i for just planes/helis, and means I won't have to carry 3 TX's around anymore.

It's actually looking like I'll have the programming card, bearing and upgraded voltage regulator before the TX, and I ordered them about a week after!

Yea me too. Didn't have a manual cd in the box, but did download the manual.

Was there anything else on the cd besides the manual?

Mine showed up yesterday, it's actually pretty nice in your hands. Has a nice balance with the batteries in it, and the trims aren't bad to use while driving.
