The upcoming RadioMaster Zorro follows a similar gamepad style design as the Jumper T-Pro, but with a much bigger status screen and replaceable rubber grips. The Zorro radio series was announced with four types of built-in TX modules: CC2500, 4in1, ELRS, or CC2500+TBS Nano.
On the front panel, it has two adjustable hall gimbals, a metal roller, and 6 control buttons. Around the power button, there are four trimming switches.
In addition to the 18350 type internal battery, the RadioMaster Zorro can be powered also by an external 2s LIPO battery.
The RM Zorro remote controller can be ordered from Banggood with a starting price of $99.99 for the CC2500 edition. For the built-in ELRS TX module, you will need to pay $20 more. The expected shipping time is starting on January 8, 2022. The dedicated storage case is available for $29.99.

What is the difference between OpenTX and EdgeTX firmwares?
EdgeTX is a subversion of OpenTX. If you like is the “edge” version of OpenTX

Just read that ELRS version has a max 250mW!
