This could have been on the tv show 'Beyond 2000'

Well, we are way past the year 2000, but so is this transmitter - they're a bit pricey, don't make you a better flyer - but this unit makes the hobby of heli flying so much more enjoyable. Easier heli setup, variable adjustments at your fingertips, this is SO NEXT LEVEL !!

Cannot recommend

I don’t know why people love this radio. The build quality is very plastic. Setup is not at all intuitive. Software is buggy. Plus you gotta pay extra to be able to do basic setup for a helicopter. The only reason I didn’t give it one star is being helidirect is awesome in quick shipping and responding to emails.

A MUST HAVE

Well where do I start. This radio is on another level. I did notice it is much lighter than my old spectrum ix12. That had a bit more weight in the hands. To me i kinda like that feel, but a spare battery would fix that if needed. The moment you power on the radio it is very fast and quick. My ix12 was slow and took longer plus it lag. But on a few changes it wast that bad but does not compare to the vbar. I like the setup and very smooth on the gimbals. The application of other programs is sweet. If you're new to it just take youre time and enjoy. I did and glad. 😊

Nice radio that has a lot of potential

Really liking my new Vcontrol Touch radio. If you are a Vbar flyer this radio makes things a lot easier to setup for sure. Screen is large but def could be a bit brighter in the sunlight. Speaker is nice and loud and even though the gimbals are plastic feel very smooth. Battery life is a little on the low side but there is a provision in the radio for a second battery which helps a lot. Sticks cannot be adjusted unless you pull the radio back off which on a radio of this price point is a little strange but it comes apart real easy and there are no ribbon cables to work about ripping. Coming from radios from Spektrum (ix12) and FrSky I really miss the option of changing the voice and making the radio say anything I want and I am hoping in the future Mikado adds this. The programming is completely different than any other radio I have had in the past but once you get used to it its not bad. I am not sure why guys would buy this radio to use with planes but it looks like many do, I personally only use it for my Vbar heli's. I think with some software improvements this radio would be great and would def get 5 stars. Last but not least Mikado customer service is about the best out there. I had lots of questions that were answered in hours instead of days.

Excellent TX. Flexibility is very nice

Perhaps the best TX I have owned. On screen programming for new setup is very convenient. The battery life could be better. I installed a second battery inside where they have made space for it. Makes a huge difference for batt. Life
