So I just got my DX6, and i was super excited about this transmitter, my buddy has the Dx9 and it is awesome. So when I heard about the new DX6 running the same software and getting nicer gimbals and a 3 state F mode toggle I decided to go ahead and pre order one. Well I opened it up today and fired it and was pretty disappointed.

First, compared to a DX8, or DX7, even the old DX6 the menu interactions seem slow. The gimbals, I actually really like, Im a thumber and they are slightly shorter sticks than the DX8/7

Now the biggest issue which pretty much make it un-usable (in my situation). The menu roller basically does whatever it wants. all I have to do is just touch the thing and it starts whizzing around like crazy. Over all not impressed and Its going back tomorrow, I might return it, and give another one a try.

Pay close attention to my thumb, notice it is not moving the roller the whole first half of the video>

Ya luckily I did not buy it direct, as i have not had the best experience with them, my local hobby shop is great though, um sure it wont be a problem.

actually not bad :)
So got a new one yesterday, the collective stick was super sticky, I was pleased to find taking it apart was MUCH easier than a dDX7/8 , made a quick adjustment to the gymbal tension and done, and so far I actually am REALLY Pleased with it!!

"ONE" is by no means a consensus. It is an isolated incident.
