the 6500 was 4200 new and if the retail is what is shown for the 6400 and has two receivers then the 6500 wont have much resale value. I was afraid the flexes would de-value the same as computers.
What do others think?
I see FRS reduced the price of the 6700 by $500 which makes me wonder if the 6700 hardware is about to be superseded too. Maybe with a larger screen for all 8 slices? Nothing I'd be interested in upgrading too. My 6700 and Maestro work just fine.
It's a shame FRS is moving away from the slim profile of the 6300 and 6500 cases.
I did find this listed in the by it now, surely the 6600m is not what is listed below, it says.
Purchase a reservation for the FLEX-6600M. The reservation is fully refundable at any time and will be applied toward the final purchase price of $3999 at the time of shipment.
Comparing the main hardware (guts) looks like they might be keeping that all the same.
Comparing Scu 6300/6400 looked the same and 6500/6600 seemed the same but with added scu and 2 transverter IF outputs.
So really a good deal. So RX and TX specs are very similar which is great too.
Good for Flex. And yep my (old) 4 wheel car gets me to where I am going too.
Maybe test drive the new one when they come out this fall.
In the end Flex will expand their customer base and we will all benefit from it.
