Customer Reviews

New to OpenTX

I've been thinking about making the move over to an OpenTX transmitter for a few years now. YouTube is a great source of knowledge and I really like the feel of the TX16S. I will be doing some aethetic upgrades but so far I am really liking the ability to do multiple protocols.

Infinitely customizable!

For a long time, OpenTX had been mentioned in various forums but I didn't give it much thought. Eventually, I became interested in programming various parameters into my transmitter that couldn't be done in my expensive, name brand transmitter. I was stunned when I discovered that the RadioMaster TX16S offers so much flexibility in programming, and yet it's so affordable! With a color screen and a bunch of switches, sliders, knobs, and buttons, the RadioMaster TX16S is infinitely customizable. The only real difficulty is learning OpenTX, but once you do you'll never want to go back. After all, programming a model can be as fun as building the model. If you like tinkering and want complete control over your programming, then the RadioMaster TX16S is for you!

Great value, prompt shipping!

New to flying RC planes and wanted to graduate from the cheap tx's included in RTF kits. I was interested in running an OpenTX platform for more flexibility as I learn and grow and this fit the bill and at an amazing price. As this is my first hobby-grade TX, I don't have anything to compare it to but for the month and a half I've had it, it's performed flawlessly. Also, BuddyRC shipped it out quick and the price was on point. Glad I made this purchase.

Absolutely Love It!

Your response time to fill my order and ship was incredible. Absolutely love the radio. Will definitely purchase from you again.
