Product Review (submitted on June 29, 2018):
This is the remote that I have dreamed about. Its small but not too small - it feels fantastic. I only fly micro quads but I'm impressed. My QX-7 has been collecting dust since I got this one. I fly with my thumbs so pinchers your mileage may vary but so far the throw of the gimbals is great. Its short enough to give me quick control of the smaller drones but not so short as you feel like you don't have precise control. I used it on a road trip to play a quad simulator on my laptop and it seriously makes for a great travel remote. I thought the wheel on the qx-7 was a game changer on changing settings but the 4 way button is just as good if not better. FrSky - you hit this one out of the park.

Couple notes: Bluetooth connectivity is not included in the current version - hopefully it will be a part or board offered later that I can install myself. I miss having a lanyard clip on the remote - I know they have a plastic thing you can buy to add one but it looks flimsy. I don't need something to hold the controller while I'm using it - I simply want a way to not have to put the remote down on the ground while I work on a quad or go looking for it. Maybe they could create some sort of custom battery covers that have attachment points for a lanyard or something? Long story short - if you have wanted a remote for your mini quads that is like an x-box controller - well this is it and its GOOD.... :-) Happy Flying.
