  • By from Lincoln, Nebraska on Friday, May 13, 2016
  • Pros: Good radio, comes with all of the adapters and charging equipment you need.
  • Cons: People who don't read the instruction book.
  • Review: Many have suggested the back light duration is too short. A quick look at the instruction book reveals it is adjustable through the settings mode.

  • By A.N. from Beaver Dams NY USA on Thursday, August 11, 2016
  • Pros: Very well built!
  • Cons: None
  • Review: The programming of the radio was simple, and a great feature. I like that you can program edit and save all of your data on your laptop. The radio functions as it should and is very clear and easy to use in flight. A huge plus is that it comes with all the very nessary assecories in one package!

Good product, terrible manual.

  • By Clark from Moorpark CA USA on Thursday, March 22, 2018
  • Pros: Seems to be a good radio
  • Cons: Complex menu system and poor manual descriptions make some features hard to use.
  • Review: A good Radio that does almost anything you might desire.
    Manual is tough to understand. Simple function controls are buried beneath multiple menu layers making them hard to find. Manual doesn't help in some cases. I had to go to YouTube channel where someone posted a How To for some functions. That helped for some. Lots of trial and error for other functions.
