you mean the 6xhs? that is an OLD radio as far as computer radios go, look at the programming on it. besides, it has already been replaced by the 6exa on the low end and the 7c as the next step up.

maybe someone can correct me, but I think the 6x line dates back to around '97, so it is 7+ years old already.

The Futaba 6X Super series (6XAS, 6XHS) came out in 1999. Before that was the non-Super version (6XA, 6XH). The 6X-series has been out well over a decade.

As Bax said, the 6X lineage goes back a long ways. It's been a 2nd class radio (feature-wise) since the RD6000 came out back in 2000 or so. For what it is, it's a fine radio. The Futaba name is the only thing that's been selling it the past few years, as it really can't compare the other offerings in it's class. It's been due for replacement for a long time, and I think it's great that Futaba is competing with Hitec in putting a 7-channel in that price range. It's too bad JR didn't design the 738 for that market. One way or another, that's where the 738 will end up competing.
