Great radio and great price!

RM TX16s

I purchased this due to my Taranis X9D Plus disappearing. The RM doesn’t seem as solidly built as the Taranis, but it isn’t a bad radio at all. I’ve had no issues with mine and don’t anticipate any. All of the buttons work fine, as does OpenTX. Although I will say the menu wheel feels a bit cheap, but it does work. I have been contemplating making the move to EdgeTX, but still uncertain. I recently received my Crossfire Micro v2 module and it works fine as well. Express LRS module is on the way.

Issues with Module Bay

My radio arrived with issues with module bay not lining up with Crossfire Module problem with pin misalignment. AND Throttle stick drift where the throttle stick drifts down on its own. The vertical axis tensioner has no effect. Currently still unresolved requesting replacement from HeliDirect.

Radios have come a LONG way!

I loved my Turnigy 9XR Pro but it is no longer in production and when my started to fail have five years of hard use, it was time to consider the current state of the market. I looked at the Taranis and was impressed, couldn't afford Futaba and didn't want to be tied down to one protocol. Had heard good things about the Jumper version of this radio and so started researching the Radiomaster. Decided to give it a try and ordered it from HeliDirec who was prompt with the shipping and very good with communication.

The radio is impressive. Build quality seems very good, not sure I'll ever use the touch screen when it becomes active but it's there but also contributes to a difficulty seeing in bright sunlight so more of negative than a positive to me. Probably the most challenging part of this is that you cannot simply sit down and in one evening grasp all the things this radio can do. My Turnigy, running eepskye, could do a lot but nothing compared to the RM. And of course, moving the models over is only the first step, trimming and flying that model is basically a maiden flight all over again.

I've had to increase the stick tensions on both siders by quite a bit. They were very loose making it difficult to get tactile feedback as to how far you had moved the stick. My first flight on this with my aged and reliable T-28 made me look like a noob so glad I didn't go with something 3D as a first attempt. I've now gone through about half of my 16 planes and am comfortable with the controls and where the switches are located. Speaking of switches, a couple more 2 position to replace a couple of the 3 position would actually be welcome not that there isn't an easy workaround to make a 3 into a 2.

So far it has bound with everything I own which is mostly Turnigy and Spektrum but even some of my toy grade stuff like a cheap quadcopter has been able to bind successfully. I think for the money, you cannot find a better or more versatile radio in today's world. When I think I paid $300 for a 4 channel proportional Futaba in 1982, we have come a long, long way in this hobby!

Technology Improvements in leaps and bounds

Some years ago, the first hobby grade RC transmitter I ever bought was a Futaba 7C. I think I paid something like $400 for it brand new and had to special order it through my local hobby shop. Two years ago I bought a FrSky QX7 for a little over $100. This was already a big improvement over the Futaba in terms of capability and price, but things like the LCD screen were really no better than the Futaba.

Enter the Radiomaster TX16S. For $150 this thing is absolutely incredible. Smooth hall effect gimbals and a BIG full COLOR LCD screen with very good navigation. This radio also feels very good in my hands and has a good weight too it. It feels quality.
