hmmmmmm interesting!
« on: November 14, 2017, 11:57:19 »
just popped up on BG (typically right after I bought a new TX but heyho)

https://www.banggood.com/IRangeX-iRX-IR8M-2_4G-8CH-Multi-Protocol-Transmitter-With-PPM-S_BUS-Mini-Receiver-p-1226058.html?rmmds=newArrivals&cur_warehouse=CN

Description:
Brand name: iRangeX
Item number: iRX-IR8M
Band: 2.4GHz
Channels: 8
Color: White, Black (optional)
Mode: Mode 2, Mode 1 (optional)
Computer Radio: Yes
Outpulse: 1000-2000ms
Model Memery: 30
Modulation: "4 IN 1" CYRF6936, CC2500, NRF2401, A7105
Range: Full
Telemetry: Yes
Transmitter (Tx) Battery Type: 2S Lithium lon Battery/ 4S "AA" 1.5V

Features:
* i8X-IR8M transmitter can act like a USB drive. Managing models, configuration, icons, and themes is as easy as copying a file.
* Supporting for up to 255 different models in transmitter memory.
* Fully configurable themes including bitmaps, fonts.
* Flexible transmitter configuration, remap any switches or buttons to any purples. Also Virtual Channels for additional functionality.
* All text is localized, user-adjustable mode configurations (1, 2, 3 or 4)
* Smooth, quad-bearing gimbals, adjustable stick length and tension.

* Easy-to-read backlit screen.
*Support for multiple protocols without any modifications to the transmitter:
Cyprus: CYR6936: DSM/DSMX, JR Pro, Walkera DEVO

Amiccom: A7105: Flysky AFHDS2A, Hubsan
Nordic Semiconductor: NRF24L01: Hisky, Syma, Assan and mose other Chinese models.

on first glance it all seems remarkably good, the protocol support and claimed "full range" in particular.

The handset style is also very T-evo'ish too which I like.

but whats really caught my attention is the price.....£62????

just seems too good to be true now

thoughts anyone?

Spec looks really good, I would be concerned with the buttons on the left handle.
The game controller style is crappy, more  for couch potatoes. ;)

Oi git I aint no CP and I like the this controller format :angry:

that aside......still cant shake the feeling its way to good to be true.

I mean if it was atleast some crappy no-name maker Id understand, but its RangeX, their pretty well established and known, infact I was looking at one of their modules for my 9x just yesterday at £49...... £14 more and I could have the whole shabang and more besides......... theres got to be a hitch somewhere surely?

 It's Mr Git to you.... :rofl:
I get the same feeling , if it looks to good to be true it usually is.  It's also on pre order... :hmm:..
I would wait for others to do the field testing and if it comes up good it would make a good backup T/X.. although the nob jockey woofter, game controller, package the electronics come in would have to be  covered in a paper bag to use when other people were around.. :nananana:
