Default DX6i

Just curious - in the pics of the DX6i (due early December) on the Horizon web site, the battery voltage as displayed is 5.1V on the TX - does it use a 4-cell NiCd pack in the new transmitter?

That would help lighten up a transmitter - or leave room for a large capacity battery pack for sure!

Thanks,

thanks, Gryphon, you've satisfied my curiosity. I'm looking forward to seeing them when they come out. To me, the box looks sort of "square" like an older metal case transmitter, and that's what I learned to fly on. Heck, only recently have I had anything but vinyl clad metal boxes for a transmitter!

The shape of the DX6i is definitely not square. It has several countours. Yes, the DX6i uses a 4 cell battery. It uses 4 AA size batteries.

Sorry if I implied it WAS square - it just looks sorta square-ish in the pictures. I'm really looking forward to the radio when they're available, looks like a great way to get into the 2.4 GHz stuff if you've already got planes set up with servos, etc.

Thanks, guys!
