Default Airtronics 2.4ghz for M11

I see this is getting ready to hit the market, does anyone have any word on its performance?

looks to be about the same price as the spektrum stuff. I'd feel beter running the spektrum considering it appears Spektrum has had a little more experience (and now has figured many if not all the bugs out) and has a wider fan base. No idea on performance however

It is actually cheaper than Spektrum, so there might be a competition between manufactuers on who's system is the best. Almost everyone with a high end radio has Spektrum, so this might not take off.

Got mine yesterday. Installed it and tried it out just out in front of the house. No problems and I couldn't feel any "lag" like i noticed in the old Spectrum

I will get to test it more this weekend.
