Is it worth that
Probably not to most people...
and why
Same reason you would buy a Porsche instead of a Yugo...does the same thing, but it's neater...and more reliable.

Things change so fast in the electroncs that it's hard to spend big dollars on it !! I would love to have a jr 28 radio but it's out of date in two yrs and not worth 1/5 what you pay for it

I think you'll get more like 7 to 10 years out of it before it is "out-of-date". And the whole time you own it, it will give you the satisfaction of knowing you have one of the best radios available. Once you move the sticks on a high end radio, it is easier to understand why the cost so much. High end radios feel like electronic equipment, while low end feel like cheap toys. I'll just put it this way. Many people would rather drive a 10 year old Porsche instead of a new Dodge (excluding the Hellcats of course).

Man Jive ESCs have been around for long time, and I don't see me selling mine anytime soon...

I just bought a Kosmik 160 used, sure I got a great deal on it, from a friend, but it is still the most I have ever spent on an ESC... I am confident it is worth the cost... But worth is a value measured on a personal level.

I got it because I am able to get the Heli Jive 120 to go into thermal shutdown on harder flights!

Isn't this all that really matters as long as you can afford it?

7-10 years?

I don't think so... the product cycle is much faster than that. I would say 4 years tops before you start looking again.

I have decided that I have all I need at the moment. Just as with computers, there is a new better one coming ALL THE TIME.

Good Enough is Good Enough.

+1
That's why I bought a new Jeep instead of a Range Rover...I could afford either, but just no gain, for me, to spend more.

Heli Jive has been good enough for me...and I'm even trying a Castle now to see how it holds up.
