I've been watching the developments on other forums and was suprised it wasn't being discussed here as well. This is a very interesting product.

It is interesting because it is a move up for the RTF with TX package from micro to mini. The price point puts it directly in line with the RTR nitro car/truck offerings.

In the DX6i we have a full range, 6 channel TX with 5 point curves. The ergonomic design is unique.

Horizon currently has it listed for November availability.

With this coming out, one has to wonder about the continued viability of the park-flyer range DX6. Mind you, you need to buy the DX6i as part of a heli package.

Is this a true Spektrum transmitter or just another rebadged JR? It's nice to see they've put out an updated 6 channel radio... I had the DX6 and it took all of a week of using it to yank out the RF board and plug it into a 6102.

It certainly doesn't have the same plastic housing as any JR TX. It looks unique. It does have the scroll wheel like the 9303 though.

I'm not especially fond of my DX7's case because the hex pattern on the back is too fine and it feels wet/slippery/sweaty all the time; it feels like it's going to slide out of my hands. The DX6i looks very interesting and I wonder how it will feel in my hands.

It really looks like they are trying to do for RC Helis what they have done with RC cars - at the same price point.

As for the package; if it flies half as well as it seems to, then they're going to sell a ton of them.
