    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - Good build quality for the price, it is best than most of the cheap transmitters who come with cheap helicopters.

    - Sticks are good to use and they move without getting stuck or loose, it looks like and feels as a real mode 2 Transmitter.

    - The device was detectec without problem in Windows 7 x64 Service Pack 1, and it was detected as PPM (game controller / Joystick ). The driver was included on Windows or downloaded from windows update, no driver CD was required.

    - Package provided by manufacturer is good enough to survive the postal service, the box arrived somewhat damaged but the controller itself was perfectly protected with Foam.

    - It can be used with other RC simulators, some calibration or adjust may be needed, but it will work if you setup it right. Clearview, Aerofly and other simulators will work with it.

    Cons:

    - The FMS simulator included on CD looks like it is not compatible with Windows 7 x64, maybe there are ways to fix it. I have not try to fix it, because i use another simulator.

    - The USB cable is only 1m , probably need to use USB extension if you want to use it on rear usb ports.

    - The USB connector have a small circuit board inside, and looks a bit fragile, need to take care to not break it.

    - The installation and configuration can be somewhat complicated for some people who dont have much experience with computers, may need someone to help with it.

    OtherThoughts:

    - RC simulation software is a good option to learn and practice without breaking your real models. If you have interest in RC planes or Helicopters you should use them. Besides the included FMS simulator, you can download or buy other RC simulator sofwares and some are impressively realistic.

    Bottomline:

    - a Good product to learn how to fly Rc models. Using emulators to practice and you can reduce your expenses in parts to fix your broken models.

    - DX have this available as mode 1 or mode 2, take care to choose the right model for you. mode 2 is the most used in the world, but mode 1 may be the more used in your country. Do some research if you have doubts about wich mode you will use.
