I agree that the Planet TX range is built to a price but it's internals are a lot more respectable than some I have seen.

The main system is microprocessor controlled (Atmel family by Microchip – same as your favourite bottle of wine “Arduino” ) it has a separate RF board that uses an industry standard RF chip - even if some of the soldering is a bit iffy :)

The peripherals may be a bit "nasty" and I guess that could be the weak link (sticks/trim tabs/ switches)

Indeed they are. Some of the offerings from ROC are not even up to Cheapo Toy standard, but there's me up on my soapbox again!
