Radiomaster TX16S

This radio is great. Takes some learning, and if you are new to Open-TX, it can seem overwhelming. But once you get into it, it clicks, and then the fun starts. And BuddyRC is great for sales, and service aftrerwards!

The transmitter worked well but….

The screened appeared to be scratched up. There were no protective screen cover on it. I know this because I have bought two other TX16S transmitter. I hope it’s not a return item that was sold as new.

Great service and terrific product.

First off, the service from Buddy RC was great. Received my order, correctly fulfilled, in just a few days. Thanks guys! Selected the Radiomaster tx16s to replace a tired Spektrum. The owners manual for the RM is well written but it does not explain how to program the radio. The good news is a wide range of videos on the web that do. After watching the videos and programming several models the basics seem natural. The radio offers a lot more programming options than I will need but nice to know those are available. Oh - did I mention the price on the RM is less than half of a comparable Spektrum?

First OpenTX Radio

This is my first OpenTX radio. First thing I did was install EdgeTX. So far I have used it with AccuRC and I have it set up with the built in OMP for the M2 V2 and have hovered that around my back yard twice. Yard is too small to do circuits. I like this radio and can't wait for EdgeTX 2.6 to come out, game changer in a lot of ways. I know I will never buy another "big" name brand radio again. The RadioMaster TX16S (I bought the carbon version) has twice the features than my older radio that I paid almost four times as much for. If you have never experienced OpenTX, I suggest that you watch some videos on it. There are so many different protocols that this radio will send out and bind with.
