As far as I have read the X9D is planned before end this year, X12D soon after that and X16D next year sometime. Be nice if there was a countdown timer to release like I can see on the Wii U web site

Hi Guys if the pictures of X12d & X16d are correct does this make them a tray transmitter. I fly with my thumbs not pinch style, the sticks look small. I love the look of both , nice clean lines, but how will they fit in your hands?

The only picture I saw the sticks hadn't been screwed in so you are just looking at the threaded stalks so its not a tray. so should we have seperate threads for the different models yet as they all look different.

they won't do it because they want you buy FrSky receivers..
it would be awesome to have a radio compatible with FASST receivers because they are better and also compatible with spektrum ones but you need a different module for each modulation.

What's the point of having FASST receivers with a telemetry transmitter if the FASST receivers are not telemetry receivers????

I have seen this claim of FASST being better but what makes them better? I'm not trying to be a jerk here, I really would like to know.

Full failsafe even in 4ch model ?
For genuine FASST even the 6ch model has a so limited failsafe that make impossible usage for autopilots and flight controllers to engage RTH.
The 7-8ch that has full failsafe implementation are too expensive.

You didn't seen yet all the meanings Frsky can give to the concept of universal module

O I get that.. but what the FASST guys want is a FASST transmitter to work with their existing FASST receivers and get telemetry. Most Futaba pilots have hundreds or thousands of dollars in receivers. I sold 15 7 ch Futaba receivers that had cost me almost $100 each -- used the money for my other transmmitters and FrSKY fun.

Speaking of FrSKY fun --- Perhaps FrSKY transmitters could have a startup sound like mine - - so people know how to pronounce the name. (It's not frisky)

FrSky startup sound (0 min 13 sec)
