Great Bang for the Buck!

Purchased this to replace my DX6G3 and I it did not disappoint. Binding with almost any protocol, the need for more channels, and the possibility of more tuning options on my OMP helicopters were the primary reasons for the switch.

In my opinion, the intimidation factor of OpenTX is way overhyped. I followed a simple step-by-step on YouTube to create my first model, and I feel like I learned just about everything I would need for creating future models. Plus, the customization factor the firmware gives you is incredible! I can do things on this radio I never would have dreamed of with previous radios. The feel of the radio is solid, it feels like it should cost a lot more than it does! The gimbals feel buttery smooth, and the color screen is awesome!

The only "negative" thing I've found on this radio is the back right switch that you would typically use for "throttle hold" on a helicopter is a momentary switch, it returns to position once you release. Reading articles on the internet though, there are lots of possible solutions for this, leading me to see it as an inconvenience (for now) rather than an issue.

RadioMaster TX16S HALL OpenTX Multi Protocal 16ch Transmitter - Gold Edition

New to the hobby and had ordered a different transmitter that was supposed to be the latest and greatest, but I could not use it with any other "branded" RC Models. Once I learned about the Radiomaster TX16s and using OpenTX, I knew I had to make the switch. This new radio is fantastic! Once I learned how to program the TX16s using OpenTX, I could not beleive how customizable it was. I can easily bind with every single RC Plane and Helicopter I own and was able to eliminate 3 "toy type" transmitters that I had been using. Every one of these models performs so much better with the customized setups I was able to program into the radio. The original shipment was missing the included neck strap and folding handle, but HeliDirect's great customer service shipped the missing accessories to me right away at no additional cost and with no hassle whatsoever. Great price on a great radio and great customer service. I will definitely buy my next Heli from HeloDirect!

My impressions of this radio after two weeks of ownership are much higher than expected. RM is a high quality transmitter at a very reasonable price. Mine came with the latest OTX already flashed and ready to go. I put in a spare set of 18650’s and set up a couple of jets, big fan of OTX. I own Spectrum, Jumper T16 and FrSky Horus and this RM may become my go to radio. Can’t wait for touch screen to be released! I do use the Amber sound pacs on all my OTX radios as it does add a touch of audio class. Next on my list will be a couple of RM receivers moving over from the other two systems. I would encourage RM to offer a stabilized receiver as well. Bottom line is if your looking for an OTX radio you just can’t go wrong with an RM purchase from Heli-Direct. Their customer service and shipping speed is first class. I will buy from this site again.
