Stick resolution above 1048 or even 512 is mostly meaningless. Our fingers simply can't discern stick movements that small. I'd question anyone's ability to detect individual stick movements of 1/1000th of an inch or even 1/500th.

My stick tips (1024 res) move 1.8". Divide 1.8" by 1024 = 1/570" (or 0.0018" or 0.045mm) movement per step of system resolution. That's just too small an amount of stick movement in which to claim to be able to feel individual steps.

I submit that even minimum servo+linkage slack allows far greater than that.

2048? Fuggedaboudit -- it's superfluous. Nothing but a marketing buzzword.

What matters most for a locked-in RC feel is stick-to-servo speed, and you can't buy a faster stick-to-servo radio than an Airtronics SD-10G. For $400 you can get a pkg which includes a 10 ch rx -- an absolutely swingin' deal.

And try to find a radio with more versatility in its heli and plank programming.

Arguably not possible.

interesting Gimbal. Where can one view all the detailed specs for resolution, latency etc of this radio?, also the dimensions and so fourth of their receivers? I could not locate on that site?

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

Its resolution is 1024. JKos hasn't yet gotten one to test, but latency figures presently available apparently used essentially the same procedures he uses.

All the sections of the manual (except the glider segment which is too large to upload to this site) are near the bottom of my gallery. The glider segment (and the others) are also available at the bottom of this link -- but the segments in my gallery are also numbered in the order they appear in the printed manual.
also the dimensions and so fourth of their receivers?
I looked and didn't find any dimensions, but you can log onto this forum and ask any questions you have about 'em for a quick answer. There are 10, 8, 7 and 6 channel versions available. I think a featherweight 5 ch is on the way.

GimbalFan- IMHO, I could not AGREE with you more. I have played with my raptor, watching the servos while I bump the trim on my 9C- You simply cannot see/ detect any movement (1024 PCM). I also thought about the tolerences of the heli itself while it's in the air. I would think that if you could automate the movements of the servos to complete some manouver, the heli would not do the exact same thing each time- even if you could control the environment it was flying in. I don't think the machines have that 'exactness'. It wasn't just the resolution that swayed me from the A9- #of 3 position switches, balance, and I also would have felt a little like a beta tester. My perfect radio would be the Hitec features and appearance with the performance of the 8fg. But no such radio exists, so I went with the 8fg. Do I feel like I bought my last radio? No. If my current radio was something other than the 9C would I be getting a new radio? No- but I just put a 700LE together and I am NOT flying it with that 9C. But I also think that as fast as things have been changing, I may end up wanting (maybe even needing) something in a few years anyway- it's all temporary.

The 9C behaves very differently with respect to latency in eCCPM compared to mCCPM modes.

As figuratively and literally true a comment about RC as has ever been made.

temporary indeed, but I just wanna add that a finely tuned pair of fums (in good working order) may well be able to detect the difference. Thinking as an X musician, one would be able to feel the difference albeit overtly immesaurable. Latency in eCCPM was the reason why I moved away from Futaba.

This holds true for all but that raptor! Thunder Tiger refuses to let it go.
