If its compatible with the receivers I own, I am down to upgrade my 2 year old 4px. I am hoping its not android based. You all know what's going on with the DX6R.

JRSlash, upgrading your radio after 2 years? My 3PK was in service for over 10 years!

Not upgrading because any issues. My 4PX has been amazing. Not a single issue at all and I race quite often. But if this (7PX) is not android OS and compatible with my current receivers I might give it a try. It also depends on the price point.

Well so much for having the high end radio. I love my 4PX though. I will use it for many, many years as long as it continues to be trouble free.

Any word on latency/response time? #1 Reason I hear people choosing Sanwa is 'feeling more connected' with the 2-4ms faster response time(s).

some feel that ugly chrome is a down grade from the 4PX

jokes..


Radios are long term investments. I see no point going from 4PX to 4PXR or 7PX for that matter. Id rather another buggy

Nice looking radio though. i suppose if mine was stolen id consider it.
