    Is the Bluetooth version TQi radio reliable?

    I'm just wondering because I have had a few of the older TQi with the docking base fail on me very quickly. I switched back to my old reliable TQ radio after the last failure but I kind of want my telemetry back and I don't want to buy anymore of the older TQi radios. I would gladly switch to the Bluetooth version if it is more reliable.

    I have a #6528 2 channel that I use with my Slash...been about 2 months now,seems to work good,no issues thus far. Got it from dollarhobbyz for a tick over $30 (look under all models..think mine was listed under the Emaxx)

    I have two bluetooth transmitters, one for the wife and one for me and
    I think they are as reliable as any. One thing to remember with either
    the docking or bluetooth transmitters is if you get a notice of an update,
    make sure your batteries in both your transmitter and phone are near full
    so's not to interrupt the download or installing. I'm of the opinion those
    that had them go dead during an update somehow interrupted it. It did
    happen to me and I had to send it back for a re flash at no charge. I've
    updated since and no problems. Also, make sure your phone doesn't
    turn off during an update. You'll love the bluetooth.

    It's good to hear they are still running. Definitely thinking about getting one. I couldn't keep TQi with the docking base alive more than a few weeks. I left my phone in airplane mode all the time and never used it as a phone and the older radios still died on me.
