That has been taken into account.

I believe Pascal and benzo99 have done some work to get it available in an updated MPM as the current F1 chip with 128KB is near capacity.
They've done some work but I don't believe it's anywhere near ready to be thrown into a product right now.

Maybe not ideal but, looking at the illustration, they appear to have more travel than the sliders on the Jumper T16. Hopefully an improvement, if not as good as the sliders on the X9D.

Color is just a gimmick (and don't even get me started on the subject of touchscreens!)
if color is a gimmick we all suppose you are still using a Nokia phone because a smartphone with oled display is almost unreadable outdoors.....
Tell me in what scenario do you need to look down at the display while flying ?

I didn't realize we were talking about smartphones here, I thought we were talking about radios and that color screens are a gimmick on radios?

I installed Bob's 21700 5000mah kit and haven't slid the battery cover off my T16 since.

+1 for the black anodized scroll wheel, if they are able to clone Frsky metal gimbals they can also do better on the wheel.

but.... we will have to wait till Radiomaster V2

Bring some more innovation and another reason to make me buy it !!! - Rich

It's a catch-22. We've done some work with development boards, but without actual hardware it's hard to go much further, and with no commitment from anyone to put an F303 module into production we don't have a lot of motivation when there's other work to do - Pascal is busy adding features and protocols and I'm spending time trying to get some better user-facing documentation done.

I've not given up though - I have a couple of spare modules but don't have the skill or resources to swap the STM32F103s for STM32F303s myself so I'm looking at other options to get some prototypes made.

Keep up the good work Ben. We appreciated your efforts.

I have some F303s coming on a slow boat right now and a spare Jumper External that I think I can swap out the F1.
I will let you know if and when I could do some testing.

Hopefully we can get them to add it to this new radio so Multi Development could continue.
Unfortunately maybe it's not ready just yet for production?

Thanks for not giving up! - Rich

Li-ion is Light weight and energy dense, i'd really suggest you give it a go!
The jumper can handle 5000 mAh packs with an 8.4V output for external devices:

They did a good job with the black and a little bit of chrome. Instead of chrome they could have went with the darker chrome like Futaba has on the 18sz anniversary addition.
I think it needs to stay chrome because of the wear on the buttons. Black would be oily and get smooth.
I like it how they did it now. I prefer 6 position scroll switch over the push buttons.
