I can buy a QX7 in the UK for 95 but Frsky will say you're getting the upgraded gimbals (which are most likely extremely cheap for Frsky so doesn't cost them much more to add) so i'm gonna guess at 79.99

This would be great for people who fly that don't pinch the joysticks.

Anyways it's a 16ch radio but I only see maybe 10ch max? The joysticks-4, dpad-4 and two switches up top?

That is IF we assume the X-Lite is aimed at the entry market (?) I think maybe it might be aimed at a different pilot..

Number of output channels does not depend on the number of hardware switches/sticks/pots, and if this has a module bay you could run 32 output channels. But it is true that with fewer hardware inputs you have to get more creative about being able to use all the channels.

It does (well the specs say) have a module bay...

IMHO the pilot this radio is aimed at, wouldn't use more then 7 channels..

If it's under 100$ it's great deal. If it's around 70 or less, the turnigy elolution is dead...

I'd say it might be eighter way, with it's single FlySky protocol..
then again: time for HK to release something new anyway (and I do NOT mean that Tx6i )
