I read that the normal ds12 with plastic gimbals that you can not rotate them but the alloy ones are rotateable and i have rotated them so more inline with the thums movement when you hold the tx. If you look at the spirit website
https://store.spirit-system.com/en/r...lex-ds-12.html you can see the extras that Tomas feels are needed for helicopter use, there are 4 extra moduals extra. Also with Jeti Uk just down the road from you there would be no problem sorting any thing out. Jeti Uk was also able to swap the rx that comes with the tx to a REX3 so able to use with the Spirit.....

Yes I am aware of the other extras and if you want them it is decent value.

Not such a big deal for me now.

I recognise the cost and value of the aluminium case but in reality I doubt I would use it. I had one with a Futaba transmitter which I never used.

Iím not a fan of faux-carbon and Iím not that keen on the special edition logo. They are that bad, just that they wouldnít be my first choice.

And the receiver, Iíd prefer the price difference was another £10-£20 and the included a more capable receiver.

Which is why Iím interested how significant the metal gimbals are.

Cheers,

Nigel
