My next radio will be a Jumper T-16 as soon as they are released. My understanding is stock is in the stores already but they have to wait for FCC approval before they can release for sale.
I really like the idea of the multi-protocol native within the radio. If OpenTX devs cooperate and write software specific to drive the T-16's multi-protocol module, it will really be a great setup. That is assuming quality is up to par.

Im still going full tilt with Graupner, The MZ32 is a third gen radio with such a departure from previous version its really giving me a work out. Graupner is WIFI , Bluetooth, MP3 player, If I have the radio WIFI on at home and it connects to the internet it alerts me to an update and IF i want to update. The voice alerts with so many options is so cool, I have third party pitot air tube speed and with a quick pushbutton option of my chosing or, allows on, at intervals it tells me MPH....

I just got on board with their telemetry ESC so at a glance or voice prompt alerts of my chosing I can really dial in power setups to another level realtime, I'm most curious about manuever transitioning and ESC temps as I have melted all the solder off a Hobbywing 100 in my Outlaw, as well as RPM unloading in turns of high speed models or is it just a sound fake out. I got a wing running a APC sport 6X4 @ 23K 35 amps. it sounds like it unloads in turns, I also plan on doing some real airspeed versus calculated prop speeds tests.

As a side note on Graupner MZ32. The movie studio for Avator sequal purchased 120 MZ32 and run 20 at one time using all 32 channels for anamatronics in a metal building studio. They told GraupnerUSA that they have a billion$ budget for anamatronics and tested all the top teir radios prior to mass ordering of 120 MZ32.

Nope. As much as a get to fly now it was probably a waste of money to get the 14sg.

I tried FrSky X-Lite pro but it didn’t fit my hands so I exchanged it for 9XD Plus 2019 SE.
X-Lite pro nice radio but not for me and using a neck strap was an option but I tried one to get away from neck strap.
All the features it has and I’ll probably only use exponential.Maybe dual rates.
I got mine from Aloft hobbies and great service.

We've got a revival on our hands! I picked up the FRSKY x10s Express, it's pretty awesome.

I have been looking at this. Multi protocol like a jumper but touch screen color display and not put together with junky ribbon cables. Also think they are cheaper than the jumper or the taranis and already have the good hall effect gimbals.

I’m using a 14 year old Futaba 9 channel with a spectrum plugin module. Works great for me. 32 model memory and I still have about 18 slots left. I don’t think a new radio would help me fly any better.

I’ve got three futaba 7 channels that program the same. They are sitting there collecting dust. And prolly 12 radios hanging on the wall for the past 15 years. I still have my first radio ever. A 7 channel Expert bought at INDY RC. ‘Member when they used to run ads in the magazines?

I need to purge the garage....
