It amazes me that these manufacturers actually give us a preview with all the speculation and stupidity that gets spewed out from all the experts.

If you're talking about anything I said...Mikado already said it. I just repeated it.lol...

It's going to be just like V Bar Express.
Buy it with limited functionality and upgrade later.

I mean,seriously...would it kill them to just sell one single thing that works 100% out of the box and doesn't need a credit card and USB cable to "unlock" it?
Just add a few bucks to the price...If it's such a minor upgrade and anybody can do it in seconds...do it when you install the software at the factory. That would cost the company zilch. Unless you count all the guys forced to buy the download. But,like I said...jack up the price a little.

I literally never use the word literally right.

Day Zero exploit on Mikado RC radio by Kapersky Labs. Vector exploit found to allow green martians to assume control of V-bar equipped RC helicopters.

Martians found to be really bad pilots and crashing all over area 51 dessert.

"Now we broke them bad by buying it anyway, I can bet they'll make the radio with issue and then sell the fix as firmware upgrade to galvanized more of our money.
Oh ya!... I forgot about that!.. . Sorry guys! This Radio will have an upgrade in a few months after release. As follows;Firmware upgrade v4.0 = 39 Euros Firmware upgrade v4.01 Express = 45 Euros Firmware upgrade v4.03 Express Pro = 65 Euros Version 5 2015 = Sorry, v4 not upgradable to v5.0 
Yes" I personally call for a boycott of the product
We shouldn't let this idea fly anymore, "if we don't give into this manufacturer will have to change course I guarantee you........I had to tell you all if no one is paying attention a REX 250 HELI) THE SAME PRICE AS A 500 size HELI) THESE days. Some things just doesn't had up,

Companies can do whatever they want . Mikado has been going strong for over a decade . Most companies come out with products and have upgrades or new versions months later . I think Align has them all beat with and people will buy their products knowing the consumer is doing the R&D then comes a patch . I've had almost all Heli related products and I look for quality and customer service and Mikado has both no mater what .

I stole it ,flew it and gave it back ;)

One of Mikados turn offs for me is just that.. having to pay for firmware upgrades. that to me is wrong , but I guess if you can afford the product you can afford the cost the comes with it in the future,
Just to be clear….again….you don't pay for updates, you pay to get extra features. Features that you cannot buy externally and collectively for $40. The VBAR flies exactly the same with either version. The extras (Gov and logging are just two) are also top notch….
Oh ya!... I forgot about that!.. . Sorry guys! This Radio will have an upgrade in a few months after release. As follows;Firmware upgrade v4.0 = 39 Euros Firmware upgrade v4.01 Express = 45 Euros Firmware upgrade v4.03 Express Pro = 65 Euros Version 5 2015 = Sorry, v4 not upgradable to v5.0
That has never happened. That is why rumors are so bad, someone takes misinformation and makes it seem so bad when in reality it simply is not.

Cool idea, but one ugly radio... Maybe it will grow on me with time, but reminds me of the Goblin, just can't digest the look of it. If it has the features and the right price point I will be all over it once more details are out, but please make it nicer to the eyes. Got hit with an ugly stick. Sure it will not be a cheap radio, but looks cheap. I love Mikado products too!

For those wondering, Mikado has already announced that the software will be updated this summer to allow for use with fixed wing.
And you really think this will be FREE??... Think again!
I think a lot of people just like to complain about things they don't have, or can't afford.
When we decided to stay on this hobby, we knew what we're getting into. We watch our Bank Account and Credit Card go up and down like a Log Data!.. Did we complain?... Of course NOT! We love this hobby!...We can afford anything to support this hobby!... But when I spend an arm and a leg for your product, don't keep coming back to me every time you "Fart" in exchange for the other part of my body!
Don't like
Don't buy
[/B] We like it, that's why we bought it! But we have the right to complain as a consumer, specially once we found out we got screwed![ ... Are we gonna buy it again?... " Of course not" B]

[/B] Anyway, I'll repeat what I've said on my other post; Why is it that every time somebody say something about a Mikado product, whether it's a joke or not, you guys get so agitated? So defensive! Why??? Are you guys all Reps for this company? If not, then why is it that after paying an arm and a leg for a product, pay for an upgrade, yet still defend the company that you never get anything for free?[B]

How do you charge your cell phone and or laptop batts?

Its really not an issue. Im sure it has a built in regulator just like my DX9. Down side it only charges at 200mAh so it takes all night like NiCd did but now only once a month unlike every weekend.

Does it have an earphone jack? In a noisy field, the "tone" you will hear but not the voice. The voice is a key feature for certain alarms.

Needs a womans voice.
here is why i dont like charging my lipos in the case or my helis or planks for that matter just IMHO

If you "think you got screwed" its because you didn't do you homework to know about the upgrade cost.

If your not going to buy again go troll somewhere else.

It has a small antenna, must be part spectrum.
It has a on off switch, must be part....

Question: If I set ignore on es1co2bar3 and cyberbug001, will it also filter out posting from people falling for their trolling?

Just curious.
