  1. Super cool features.. Clearly no mention of battery life.. A remote sporting all this + an 802.11 antenna would probably last 2 minutes using today’s battery technology!

    Looks good so far. We’ve heard very mixed reviews about the 2way communication with the RTI. Still this is a cool award-winning T3 concept.
