Default New release; JR 28X Radio

Hey guys, the AMA show keeps cranking away and we keep getting more and more new releases!

This time JR Americas drops itís new flagship radio the JR28X! With 28 available channels and 15 flight conditions, the scale and Jet guys are going to lost it!

So far all the info I have about the radio is from the splash sheet posted below.
That being said, this thing looks neat! Apparently it is using an Android OS and a touch screen, which should make this radio very easy to program!

Anyone at the AMA show get a good eyeball on this bad boy? If so, letís hear about it!

Certainly if an iPhone costs $800 then this doesn't need to cost more than $1000. But I think Sleepy's estimate will be right on the money. At least we are seeing some serious radios showing up on the high end. This will raise the quality of next gen mid range radios.

Those look like push buttons in the replaceable switch plates. Yippee! (although I don't now how you reach them easily with your fingers, keep trying radio guys...)

unrealistic , since the iphone can recoup their R&D money in the "millions" that they will sell......any RC related sales will be minimal when compared to the iphone
