Does anybody have any first hand experience with that radio? It seems like a steal at below $50. It is a little more effort to program, based on the ad, but for a sport flier it might be a low cost entry. It might also be less than OK. Who knows?

Honestly, I don't own one so I can't speak to it's quality. However, The number one thing everyone will tell someone that is starting out is to save the money and get a good radio the first time. JR/FUT/Spektrum all have excellent warranties and track records. If it was me, i wouldn't even waste the time with it. Keep an eye on the classifieds, DX6I's come up for decent prices all the time. If you can afford it, go for a DX-7.

I run a DX6, but the Exceed 2.4 GHz radio is very interesting. If I build a new heli using my Spektrum the receiver is $50. The receiver for the Exceed is $15. I don't want to try the Exceed until someone says they are OK.....

I bought that radio about 2 months ago for my CopterX 450 AEV2 and it’s been working great. The things I don’t like is that it does not have Expo. Settings, and it uses 8 AA (12v) batteries and it eats them fast. I modified the transmitters batteries compartment so now I have a 11.1v, 1800ma, 20c LiPo powering the transmitter, last forever.

After a search for posting on this radio I have seen quite a few reviews. The Tx seems OK but requires a pc to program or switch models. This is a bit awkward but OK if it is a devote TX. Most people who own them have some issues learning the programming, but then like them. It is a true "bare bones" system for almost no money. I was unable to determine the range, but if you fly close in it would have no effect. For now I will stay with my old, aging DX6, but I may venture into this soon enough.
