Yes, I saw it last week, and I'm told it's a FrSky (pronounced "FreeSky product").

If so that is good news as they seem to realy have their act together.

Not a bad radio for the price. Only minor criticisms. Battery door doesn't latch very well, and the model name is not displayed in the model selection window, you need to choose by number even though you can apply a name. The trainer port was a challenge. Had to make an mini din (s-video styled connector) to 3.5mm phone jack cable to get the trainer port to work. Required some special wiring. Had to jumper pins 2&3 to get radio to enter trainer mode.

Quite well featured. What is nice is the back-lite display,very very handy. The feel of the radio is very similar to the DX6i. Can't really complain for the price. Have no hesitation in buying another.
