Far as setup up wise haven’t flown with it yet

feels great!

i bought this as a second radio because ny tx12 was too big to fit in my whoop sling bag. the pocket fits perfect along with everything i need to go whooping. the gimbals and included stick ends are serviceable but i will be looking to replace the stick ends with something more pincher friendly in the future.

Best value small controller

This is a fantastic little controller/transmitter. I also have the BetaFPV lite radio pro 3 (I think I got that right) which is also an excellent little controller, but the $65 cost dethrones the previous value champion from BetaFPV of $90. I have had no issues with reliability, setup was logical. The display is very bright (but can be easily adjusted to less blinding when indoors) and the speaker is plenty loud enough (where BetaFPVs offering is a bit muted). The internal lights and clear shell are a nice touch, the rotating antenna feels very solid. Overall I agree with the many favorable reviews I’ve seen for this device- can’t beat the price for the value!

Great for controller

It's small and light, works well flying my microdrones for fun at home.

Handy as a second transmitter for travel, tiny whoops, etc

Surprisingly good for the price especially with ELRS. It has just enough switches that I can do most of what I can with the TX16S, and it's so much easier to throw in a bag and go. My only wish is that I could put the thumb-grippies style of stick ends on it easily (and still remove them for storage), but maybe someone will come up with an adapter or similar. Next step is to try a Gemini ELRS nano module and see what kind of range is possible on that.
