A Crazy Powerful Transmitter

After my Spektrum DX6 finally bit the dust, I purchased this Radio Master. I couldn't be more happy. The transmitter does everything, and it does it well. I love that Buddy RC ships everything so quickly and has great pricing and products. I would much rather support someone in RC than Amazon. I also HIGHLY RECOMMEND upgrading your firmware to EDGE TX to get touchscreen capability.

Great service but product less than 100%

As a returning customer I will state as before that Buddy RC excels in customer service with orders shipping as promised. I wish I could say the same for the 16 channel RadioMaster radio I purchased. It soon became evident that one of its switches was defective. Though RadioMaster has a US service affiliate, I was told that a replacement switch would be sent to me from China for me to install myself. As a business owner, my perspective is for RadioMaster to reduce its incremental warranty costs through better quality control - raising prices slightly to accomodate a higher manufacturing cost...and tell customers that in-warranty repairs will not be handled by the service affiliates. To do less than this insults the intelligence of their customers.


This radio is awesome has a steep learning curve but it’s worth it


This TX16S is such a big leap forward for RC transmitters that it makes all the other radios in the marketplace seem puny and substandard. Totally open, totally customizable, too many thoughtful features to mention. I learned how to use it by watching excellent YouTube videos and now I feel like an expert. Super easy to program. Choose your favorite receivers.

Super experience with Buddy RC

Called the store to get all my questions answered, went on-line to create the order. Package arrived in a few days. Very easy transaction all the way around.

Other features include an external Micro SD slot (card included), 2 x external UART expansion ports, and touch panel readiness (requires OpenTX 2.4 and Upgrade Panel sold separately). The TX16S MAX also has an STM32F429BIT6 MCU, a 4.3 inch 480 x 272 outdoor readable color touch panel screen, and is compatible with OpenTX.

The radio has full-size high-quality HALL sensor gimbals with CNC aluminum facias, an internal multi-protocol RF system, and full-speed native TBS Crossfire support (400K). It supports telemetry (protocol and receiver dependent), has a memory of 16M (expandable with a Micro SD card), and includes a voice function and vibration reminder function. The improved JR module slot, 6-flight mode buttons (Pixhawk and more!), and three-color LED status display add to its functionality.

Additionally, the radio has a USB-C charging port with 2-cell battery management and a maximum current of 1.5A, a USB-C simulator and PC connection port, and external UART ports to expand its capabilities.
