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. ;)

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:

You won't regret the QX7

I do like the design of this - looks like the TBS Tango.  I shall wait for reviews first though.  It might be a bit cheap and nasty, but Bruce did review the other multi-protocol transmitter from the same company and he thought it was not too bad.

I have a tango, it is ok but prefer both my x9d and qx7, I have big hands but the tango form factor is too big to be really comfortable

Andy hozza is spot on, you won’t regret the qx7
