I like the new design. I have also used nothing but airtronics for all 11 years in this hobby from my MX-3 to M11. I am a Airtronics customer for life but I will admit that the current designs are a little top heavy and in a long main it gets cumbersome to hold it. I'm looking forward to the new weight balance of this new radio and I will be getting one as soon as its out.

I like the lightweight, balanced design. It fits my grip just right. If it had a backlit display it would be perfect.

I love my mt4, has worked flawless for a year now and has everything I could want.

Same here but wish I had a backlight which I'm sure the new will have. I know there's a mod for a back light but I don't trust myself to do it.

yes..the mt-4 is great

if this new m12 has the option of using the rx462 rec (or another option that monitors main pack voltage) then i might switch. one of the most useful features i have had on a rx.

You can buy the rx-462 receivers for the mt-4 from rcmart.com or Rcmarket.com. They work fine for monitoring 2s packs but the telemetry alarm won't go higher than 9 volts.
