From what I've read in the DX4S thread, backwards compatibility is very unlikely for the DX6R and may be due to FCC restrictions?

I'm in the same boat with you, hopefully things unfold a bit quicker though

Schedules are known to slip a little. This radio was released pretty early due to the nuremberg show. Don't have details on how accurate any of these dates are but not surprised to see a little adjustment to the dates.

in the industry I work in, I know arrival dates are always tentative due to delays at customs, the boat taking longer to dock, dock strikes etc. But it's been 5 months since the announcement :0 That is a LONG lead time. :0 still excited about this radio, but.....

Did the shipment arrive early, or is that a preproduction unit?

It is a pre-production unit. And the dates are looking OK still. I think the reason you see the difference between u and amain is that we have to ship them to amain and then they can ship them out so that can take a few days of lag there versus getting one direct.

They will probably atleast make a foam insert for the already pretty nice but pricey Spektrum case
