I just go one and returned the first because I thought there was a problem with it, but the 2nd NIB unit has the same problems (android related).

issue #1
goto settings - about tablet - additional system updates

craps out with error: "unfortunately, settings has stopped."

issue #2
goto play store

start typing normal speed and craps out with error: "unfortunately, google play store has stopped."

1. I have added to wifi
2. I have added my gmail account but no credit card info
3. I have updated raceware (I had to type super fast and hit search)

is android os on this device locked to shipped ver.5.1.1? I don't personally have android devices I am an ios person.

I contact spectrum support and spoke to someone and they are supposed to get back to me. they could replicate the first issue, but not the second.

thanx,

justin

Support person I dealt with “thinks” I was right that android os on this device is locked to shipped ver.5.1.1.

I don’t plan on using it for anything else really besides a transmitter with the raceware, but it should still function stable using android os... especially for the price.

Is it any good for racing?

I don’t race, but I did want the functionality and GUI.

Do not buy it. If you search for dx6r problems you will find plenty of users with problems.

My issues with mine are -

Plastic housing seems flimsy compared to my dx4c and dx4s

No rubber grip on front part of handle, dx4c and dx4s have rubber grips front and back.

I only downloaded 2 apps but somehow the os system occasionally does an error screen which a box with message pops up every second. I called horizon hobby about it and they just told me to keep x-ing it out and enter app store to force exit the app.

Battery life isnt too good. Dies with power off within a week. Must monitor the batt life to make sure the controller isnt completely dead.

I really like this transmitter and have been using it since the end of April. I don’t even use a lot of the features, but it is fast like lightning response, and easy to use. I guess there is a kewl factor when people come up and ask about it and show off all the screens :cool:
