To the guys that own the radio now. I know nobody would want to admit they bought something they didn't like. I am really considering this radio and would hope to get some honest feedback. I had an M8. I got an M11 when my M8 started giving me trouble. I sold the M11 and now have a Helios, because of the lower weight. The KO is quite comfortable and a lot lighter than the Airtronics radio.

For the guys that now have this radio:

Are you happy you purchased the radio? How comfortable is the radio? Do you find it easy to navigate and was it easy to get used to? What kind of radio did have previously to this one? I am really wanting to get my hands on one but haven't seen one yet. If anybody that has the radio has a scale, can you please weigh it with batteries and post what it weighs?

Very comfortable. It weighs nothing. You barely even notice your holding something. Incredible!

Probably the easiest radio I have used to navigate. There is only one "roller button" to work everything. Very easy to learn without even loking at the manual.

Thank you. That is definitely one on the plus side.

Anybody else?

Got 12 in when it first got released, all 12 was sold within a week and had been out of stock since and heard no complaints against the radio, it even comes with a new style receiver, all I can say is it is incredibly light.

Hey Scott, the radio works trick, we only got 3 in the day they came out and sold then in two days. The radio works of of 4 AA's and comes with the new small rx and very impressed with out easy to find menu's. It's just hard to give up the KO helio's tho...
I am sure you have already held one.

I haven't even seen one in person, but I am going to try one. I can get a pretty good deal on one so I am going to just order one and give it a try. I really like the weight and the model match feature with the new receivers.

I not sure I understand what you are saying. My guess is that the telemetry system does not work with the Spektrum 3100 receiver.

Not saying much, but I know someone who had issues already with the DX3R. I personally don't trust the that chinese/indonesia radio for nothing in the world. Buy it if you want to, but I will never buy it. Just like the previous 2.4 ghz radios they had, air or surface, there is always some update or glitch to correct. Wait till the full real world tests have been done IMO.

In regards to DX3R and telemetry it will only work with SR3000 and SR3001 Rx, micro 3500 and 3100 I am sure wont work there are not compatible.
cheers
