For the most versatile software, it's Multiplex hands down. The Asian radios are limited, convoluted joke by comparison.

And what's wrong with the hall sticks on Jeti? If anything, I would have though that elimination of the wear point would bea very good thing.

And myself, I like touch screens. To me, the biggest downside of JR post 10x is is the mickeymouse roller interface . . .

Hall effect sensors aren't as precise as conventional pots. And, if there's anything "Mickey Mouse" about the JR roller interface (goes for Spektrum, too), it's the user. It's a simple and fast way to access the entire menu structure and everything on each page. I don't want to be constantly cleaning a touchscreen. Must drive the nitro guys crazy.

I am a nitro guy, and prefer touch. Never really have to clean it either, since apparently I have mastered not pouring my fuel on the radio. And no path for crap to get inside with the screen, as opposed to roller.

And if pots are so great for accuracy, whyhave they been almost totally abandoned for other technologies in high precision applications such as robotics? I'd argue that a hall pot is more accurate than most servos, making the point moot.

My thought is pots wear more quickly than the hall pot. We dont wiggle the pots 8 hours a day on our Tx's like a robot would. Pots were used in robots too for a long time with success .

I don't want a damn color touch screen - Futaba 18MZ, JR 28X. And I don't want to spend $3000 for a transmitter.

I don't even want a damn touch screen on a computer...and there is no way in hell you can justify $2 or $3 K for a TX...it's just a status symbol.

Any Hall effect sensors I've dealt with in the past are not very good in a real life environment.
I'm sure they are now, and will continue to get better...I'll wait.

I've got to wonder why nobody has chosen to use optical encoders . . . they are relatively inexpensive, and also quite accurate.

And while I don't want touch on a computer, I spend about 90% of my internet time on a tablet, which is 100% touch. Not great for typing, but great for most other things . . . and very little typing on a radio.

Myself, I am eager to see the 28X, and how it works. Android is light years ahead of the Windows defecate that Futaba was trying to pawn off, and should make a very good underlying platform due to it's inherent stability (problems due to cheap offshore hardware are *NOT* due to Android . . . which is the case with most phone problems).

But no, I won't drop $3k on it . . . especially when the base software is open and cost JR nothing . . . I might consider half of that, but then again, unless they do a modular variant, I'm not sure I'd buy one at any price.
