Default KO PROPO VANTAGE ESPRIT TYPE R

Hello there,

I currently own a KO vantage esprit transmitter 40mhz (black and silver one before the type R) and am thinking of upgrading to the type R (black and gold).

Could you please tell me what diffreances there are between the two and is it worth upgrading or not.

Many thanks

LEON

I upgraded mine from the old original grey one to the type R about a year ago, and I did notice the difference. The response time is much better due to the type r being digital. This also makes full use when you use digital servos.
I would deffinately recommend it.

I seriously seriously in a blind test doubt that anyone could tell the difference between the two, its just a marketing thing, the 30% faster response, yeah its true, but its such a small fraction of a second its probably unmeasurable to the human eye/fingers.

I would wait a few months, I have heard that there is a new Esprit coming out which is Spektrum compatible.
