FrSky Taranis X-Lite 2.4GHz Radio Controller Black and Red Color with Free 18650 Battery Black Caps

Product Review (submitted on May 29, 2018):
Being a loyal FrSky user as well as a gamer with a Steam Controller, I love the new form-factor which feels solid in my hands and it's too bulky nor small.
The new Lite module connector seems a step forward with the addition of CAN, overall execution of internals is quite impressive and of high quality.
Only downside I've met is horizontal centering of gimbals, due to clear plastic coating on levers gimbals are quite off center horizontally and require filing to get right. I hope it will be fixed in future batches.

I would love to see a balancing connector for charging batteries as 2S inside the radio, otherwise it's a burden for most hobbyists to handle and charge.
The included 2G4 folded dipole antenna is a bit hard to remove because thread goes too deep inside the case, SMA could be brought more towards the outside or a longer connector could be used to alleviate that.
Threaded terminal connection of battery holders could be replaced with direct soldering for better contact.
