Quite a good review here :

! No longer available


however i think they have already upgraded it a bit, i have stainless steel grub screws (M3 10mm, and 16mm - 1.5 mm allen key not included) no probs with tight fit / shearing, and the case is screwed together with phillips screws, also my switches look slightly smaller, the 3 way switch is a bit fiddly, easy to knock all the way, missing the centre position prob just needs a bit of getting used to it.
my previous radio is a spektrum dx7 v1, and the x lite gimbals are def more sensitive due to the smaller form factor, after a few hours on liftoff im getting used to it though.
the finish is bute, even the red paint feels almost rubberised, very grippy / tactile and the whole thing is very ergonomic and easy to hold, i'm a thumber, and it feels great to me, i love the smaller form factor/ internal antenna / case, very easy to fit in a bag etc

i also like the battery, as i can have spare sets charged and ready to go
i bought these

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/362051184892

and have some of these on order

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-x-XTAR-18500-IMR-HIGH-DRAIN-1100mAh-UnProtected-Li-ion-Rechargeable-Batteries/183112607263?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

this is the charger i bought, its powered by USB
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07CZ1KTGR/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

so far i'm very happy with it, will update later if i find any probs
not used it out in the field as yet due to bad weather.

here is a video using the R9M 'crossfire' type long range system if that floats yer boat, its cheaper than a crossfire unit, and looks good based on this review.

 btw, you can use it with liftoff using a micro usb, power on first, then plug in the the cable, a menu pops up to choose between HID or mass storage, choose HID, press the mini joystick button, set it up in liftoff, good to go!
