Nice thing about smaller receivers:

- Less blocking of the motor fan in a mid motor touring car
- Great for cramped spaces like a tight F1 chassis

11mm x 3mm really isnt that much of a difference as I said. Yes its smaller but that really isnt that big of a difference. but hey to each their own. Its basically the same size and form factor as the Current Sanwa receivers and the Flysky Receiver.

756mm^2 vs 520mm^2. That's 39% smaller.

So because it's the same size as another brand ... It means that it's not that much smaller. Got it.

just saying I own the Flysky receivers and Sanwa Receivers and Futaba Receivers and they aren't much different the Flysky and the Sanwa are Identical. Granted the New Futaba is smaller but I just don't see that being such a drastic difference for it to even matter. maybe in like a 1/12 car or something crammed but still. Just my opinion I don't run tiny cars so to me its not a factor.

I guess if you run 8th scale the receiver could be the size of a hot wheels car and you would have room for it. Even 10th scale TC is cramped.

Looking forward to a side by side comparison with 7PX. 10PX seems to be a little lower profile with screen on the top from the pics i have seen. Smaller receivers will be welcoming for my F1 and RC motorcycle, lol. Iím a little worried about it not being backwards compatible with current receivers as i have a few in all my RC vehicles. Waiting on release to get more data.

The smaller a receiver is, the easier it gets to find a good place to mount it on varying cars and scales. I don't get how that can really cause such a discussion...

Unless you are using a FASST system, you will be fine.

Fully agree, especially for my RC motorcycle which is very limited on space. But will surely upgrade all others.

I never said it was a bad thing. I simply said that it isnt that much smaller to make it a deciding factor. Its not that much of a difference from the existing models that I would even care.
